She was the female boxer who comes from Umiru village of Yala division in Siaya County. She used to earn $250 a fight and relied on boxing to pay her bills. Today Congestina Achieng turns to a begging person who cannot have a meal unless given by her parents or the well wishers.
It was aired out that yesterday she burnt their home but some sources say that the house started burning without Congestina inclusion. The fire was later put off and some goods like her belts and clothes saved.
The Government should come in rescuing the legendary boxer before its too late.
Boxing is a very dangerous earning game and should be removed from the Competitions.
