Media personality Carol Radull has clarified claims that popular boxer Conjestina Achieng’ tried to burn down her house in Gem Yala, Siaya County.
Reports had earlier indicated that a fire broke out at the boxer’s house with preliminary reports indicating that her clothes were first items to catch fire.
However, Radull on Thursday evening, August 27 dismissed the claims, noting that the incident was accidental.
“I need to clarify a few things because of misinformation flying around. While Conjestina Achieng is going through challenges after the Heroes Council promised her work after rehab last year but did not honour their promise. Conje did not burn down her house last night,” wrote Radull.
“An accidental fire broke out in her house. Her clothes and some personal items got burnt. She raised the alarm and the fire was put out with minimal damage to her house. She is physically fine. Her house is standing and her medals that she treasures so much are intact.”
Months ago after visiting the boxer, Radull disclosed that the boxer was constantly stuck at home alone with her thoughts.
“I am no medical expert, but I see little sense in taking someone to rehab for some time then returning them to the same challenging environment. In my layman’s assessment; she is not mad but she does need more rehab to overcome her dependence on abusive substances
“She also needs some counselling (anger management) But she then needs to be in an environment where her mind is kept busy; where her talent is being used; where she feels useful and appreciated,” said the media personality.
