A while back, seasoned sports media personality, Carol Radull moved many Kenyans after she highlighted the plight of legendary boxer, Conjestina Achieng.

Radull who had visited Conje and her family, stated that Conje was left angered by how the system abandoned her.

Highlighting what she needed to get her life back in line, Radull wrote;

I am no medical expert, but I see little sense in taking someone to rehab for some time then returning them to the same challenging environment. In my layman's assessment; she is not mad but she does need more rehab to overcome her dependence on abusive substances. She also needs some counseling (anger management) But she then needs to be in an environment where her mind is kept busy; where her talent is being used; where she feels useful and appreciated. Right now she sits at home with her thoughts - doing nothing. She was yelling a lot when we arrived as if to ascertain who is boss. But the more we chatted the more she calmed down and we had a good laugh. I could be wrong in my very layman's assessment; and I would welcome suggestions.

Over a month later, Radull came back bearing good news. Updating her fans, she revealed that Conje has been in rehab for almost a month now.

She added that the once African shining star, has been supported by NACADA who settled her bills but still has two more months to go.

Radull who is running the noble #SupportConjestina initiative, pleaded with Kenyans to help support the superstar.

She wrote;

Hi Guys. Conjestina has almost completed her first month of treatment at a rehab centre and there is progress. She was admitted on 13th Aug. She still has two months to go. I am still seeking your support. NACADA settled the first month of treatment (even though it is not their mandate) but the other two months is on our shoulders.
