Wendy Waeni has been the concern of many Kenyans after her interview on Jeff Koinange Live where she revealed a lot about her relationship with her manager, Joe Mwangi when it comes to finances.

The young gymnast claimed that she has been traveling and going for gigs all over the world but she has never received a penny for her hard work.


I have performed all over the world but I’ve never gotten a penny from it and that is because of my previous manager (Joe Mwangi). EVER SINCE I STARTED PERFORMING ACROSS THE GLOBE, MY MUM HAS NEVER GOTTEN A SINGLE PENNY.

Joe came out to defend himself last week on twitter but yesterday night on Chipukeezy’s show, he talked about it all. He denied having ever traveled out of the country with Wendy for her gigs. During an interview, he showed his passport and he had only traveled to Rwanda and nowhere else.

According to Wendy, Dr. Fred Matingi pays her school fees at St. Georges but that is not what Joe confirmed. He says that the CS does not pay the full amount and so he is forced to top up.

I GAVE WENDY’S MOTHER SH100,000 IN DECEMBER LAST YEAR FROM MY OWN POCKET AND TOLD HER TO KEEP IT FOR HER DAUGHTER’S SCHOOL FEES (JANUARY 2019).

LAST MONTH WENDY HAD ARREARS AND WAS TO BE SENT HOME FOR THE BALANCE. HER MOTHER TEXTED ME AND I WENT OUT OF MY WAY TO SELL MY TV SET.

Joe Mwangi was exposed on JKL and right after he deactivated Wendy’s Instagram account and asked her mother to meet him so that he can hand over the logins and give her the phone he confiscated from Wendy.

Joe Mwangi responds to claims he used Wendy Waeni for personal gains

His reason was that he was concerned about the things she was doing with the smartphone.

 I TOOK HER PHONE BECAUSE OF SOME THINGS SHE WAS DOING WITH THE PHONE. HER MOTHER DIDN’T LIKE THE IDEA AND I TOLD HER IF SHE INSISTED THAT HER DAUGHTER SHOULD HAVE A PHONE, I WOULD BUY HER AN ORDINARY PHONE WITHOUT INTERNET (KABAMBE).

After all the back and forth, Joe has one solution for the little girl, counseling.

WENDY NEEDS GUIDANCE & COUNSELING AND NOT FINANCIAL HELP.

We are still waiting for DCI to conclude their investigation on Joe Mwangi based on Wendy’s allegation.
