Wendy Waeni, a 14-year-old gymnast, and acrobatic is a darling to many.
The form one student at St Georges High School has been trending after she exposed her rogue former manager Joe Mwangi.
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). I LIVE iN A SINGLE ROOM IN HURUMA WITH MY MOTHER,’ she told Jeff Koinange.
Waeni, who started showcasing her skills at the age of four in Huruma, has performed for great leaders across the world among them Rwanda’s president Kagame.
But even after being in the game in 10 years, she still lives in abject poverty poor state of life.
PEOPLE KEEP ASKING ME ‘WHY ARE YOU STILL STAYING IN THAT HOUSE (SINGLE ROOOM) YET YOUR DAUGHTER IS KNOWN ACROSS THE GLOBE? Wendy’s mother said in an interview with Citizen TV.
Speaking in an interview with Massawe Japanni on Radio Jambo, she thanked Kenyans for standing with her.
I would like to thank Jeff Koinange because without him, my story would have never been heard. Thanks to Chris Kirwa too. May God bless you.
Waeni, who now has a new manager said she has forgiven Joe Mwangi.
I have forgiven him and if there’s anyone out there planning to do what Joe Mwangi did to me, don’t dare. Have mercy on young kids.
Even after being a star all these years, she said,
I regret not helping my mother but I know everything is for a reason as for the talented kids, continue pushing hard.
Joe Mwangi, came out to deny not helping Waeni’s family and DCI has launched investigations in the case that has attracted the public’s attention.
