Kenyans are concerned about boxing legend Conjestina Achieng’s well-being after her recent photos surfaced online.

In photos shared on social media, Conjestina was captured looking sick and malnourished wearing loosely fitting clothes.

According to reports on social media, she is now a street girl who survives by begging on the streets of Siaya.

The 43-year-old former WIBF Middleweight champion has been in and out of mental facilities without her condition improving.

In January 2011, Conjestina’s father sent an appeal to Kenyans to help him take her to the hospital after her behavior deteriorated from the norm.

According to the father, Conjestina had removed her son from school, set ablaze all her boxing gear and disposed of all the equipment from her gymnasium, which she had opened in 2009.

She was admitted to the Mathari hospital in Nairobi which specializes in mental health care. She was later released.
