Lilian Muli sends out strong message after Sonko airlifted Congestina to Nairobi for treatment
Congestina was airlifted to Nairobi for treatment on Friday
The mother of two however went on to question what would happen after the former boxing champion heals and what the government was doing to help legendary sports personalities.
“I’m reading about Congestina and it saddens me especially because I heard her family say people laugh at her and them...I’m glad she’s getting the necessary medical attention I think that’s long overdue; but then again I ask myself what next after treatment? Will that take away that gnawing feeling that she was once a household name and now feels perhaps invisible? What as a government and society are we doing to honor those who make Kenya proud in whatever field?” read part of her post.
Ms. Muli further stated that people should stop giving themselves credit for coming to Congestina’s rescue and instead find ways to have people like her mentor young talents in their respective sports.
“I remember Maurice Odumbe saying he remembers the good old days and it saddens him to see how life can change. I see a lot of self-seeking people giving themselves credit for getting Congestina help I think the noise should be more about finding a way to keep people like her relevant in their respective fields so that they can help mentor other upcoming talents while earning a living.” Said Lilian Muli.
