Popular Gymnast Wendy Waeni on Wednesday shocked many after she revealed how she has been leaving in slangish poverty with her mother because of her former manager Joe Mwangi who she claims has never paid her a cent.
In a TV interview with Jeff Koinange, Waeni further confessed that her career has been on the downfall because of her manager has locked her out of her social media accounts and ran away with all her money.
“I have performed all over the world but I’ve never gotten a penny from it and that is because of my previous manager (Joe Mwangi). People tell me that am rude and that am a brat because of my social media that I don’t even have access to,” Wendy confessed.
Her confession which has since caused an uproar on social media has seen ODM Secretary General Edwin Sifuna reveal how the ‘rogue’ manager as well tried to con his party.
Sifuna narrates a time when Wendy visited Orange house and the party gave her a cheque to sponsor her foundation in buying play instruments.
However, the whole deal was cut short after Sifuna smelled malice. This is after Mr. Mwangi came back asking that the cheque’s name be changed into his name.
“I don’t know about child trafficking but one time Wendy came to Orange house and we cut a cheque for her foundation to buy some play stuff. Weeks later Joe Mwangi came asking us to change it and write the cheque in his name. I cancelled the whole thing.”
Hours after Kenyans have taken to the social media calling for the arrest of Wendy’s ex-manager, he took to his twitter handle in his defense arguing that none of the stories Waeni gave was true.
He further claimed no parent in the world would allow her kid to be misused for even a month and that he has never travelled abroad with Wendy before.
