Former world boxing super middleweight champion Conjestina Achieng has been readmitted to hospital on Monday after her health deteroriated.

The boxer was admitted at Kisumu District Hospital.

According to Winny Ogolla, a well-wisher who took her to hospital, the former champion has been unwell in the village.

“Conjestina is someone that can get back to her normal health if people come together to help her,” said Ms Ogolla.

Ms Ogolla has made a passionate appeal to Kenyans to come to the ailing star’s aid.

In October 2013, a funds drive was held to offset a hospital bill she incurred after spending several weeks in hospital.

A total of Sh785,000 was raised against a bill of Sh595,000.
