Photos: Amazing Transformation Of Conjestina Achieng After Months In Rehabilitation

Kenyan boxing champion Conjestina Achieng recently made a remarkable comeback to the ring. The renowned boxer, affectionately known as Conje, participated in a boxing match organized by former Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko in Mombasa. This event aimed to reignite Conjestina’s passion and talent for boxing after she received treatment at the Mombasa Women Empowerment Network.

Sonko, in a statement, expressed his honor in attending the friendly boxing match, featuring Conjestina Achieng and Fatuma Zarika, two of Kenya’s finest female boxers ever produced. Sonko also shared uplifting photos of Conje dressed in a white suit, displaying her remarkable transformation since the commencement of her treatment.

In a recent update, Sonko shared a series of images illustrating Conje’s deplorable condition when her family and friends had almost lost hope. Nevertheless, Sonko encouraged his followers to pursue their dreams relentlessly and not give up. He emphasized that despite the challenges and discouragement one may face along the way, perseverance and strength, by the grace of God, can help overcome the tests of life.

Conjestina Achieng’s story is one of resilience and determination. A decade ago, she faced financial and mental health issues, leading to the end of her boxing career in 2011. In September 2022, she was admitted to the Mombasa Women Empowerment Network Hospital in Miritini due to her deteriorating health and mental state. Former Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko stepped in to support her by providing boxing equipment and arranging for her admission to various rehabilitation centers in Nairobi and Diani Beach.

After eleven months, Conjestina’s recovery journey appears to be on the right track. Photos shared by Sonko showed her back in the boxing ring, indicating significant progress in her rehabilitation. Sonko praised Conje’s unwavering commitment to self-improvement, highlighting her as an inspiration to many young individuals who were on the verge of giving up in life.

Conjestina Achieng’s remarkable resurgence serves as a testament to the indomitable spirit of a true fighter who refuses to be defeated. Her story instills hope and reinforces the belief that with determination and support, one can overcome personal challenges and emerge stronger than ever.
