Volleyball star Janet Wanja parades hunk boyfriend after split from hubby

Volleball queen Janet Mungai Wanja has fallen in love again after a messy separation last year.

Ms Wanja has seemingly recovered from the well publicised breakup with her husband of three years, Andrew Swearman.

The split was best highlighted when Mr Swearman uploaded pictures on social media of himself with another woman in a compromising position.

That seems to be water under the bridge six months later.

On Monday, Ms Wanja uploaded photos of herself with her new hunkie Giulio Calauti.

She captioned the photos “feeling blessed” and “I thank the Lord for our Love.”


Ms Wanja plays as a setter for Kenyan volleyball champions Kenya Pipeline. Talk on her retirement has been swirling, with claims that she may try her hand in the fashion industry after calling it quits.

Ms Wanja and Pipeline teammates are at the women’s Africa Volleyball Championship which begin in Tunisia on Thursday.

Kenya Pipeline are seeking a record-breaking seventh title at the event but  face strong competition from arch rivals Kenya Prisons and north african teams including defending champions Egypt’s Ahly, Tunisia’s Carthage and Algeria’s GS Petroliers.
