Mammito voices concerns on Mike Sonko’s post on Conjestina’s recovery journey

Comedian Mammito Eunice has shared a heartfelt message in response to former Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko’s announcement of Conjestina Achieng’s renewed journey towards rehabilitation.

The former Kenyan boxer, who recently faced setbacks in her treatment, has been readmitted to a rehab center in Mombasa County.

Mammito, using her X platform, expressed the importance of patience and understanding during the challenging process of recovery.

Responding to Mike Sonko’s post, Mammito noted that mental illness is intense and requires time for full recovery.

She urged people to be kind and compassionate, allowing Conjestina to heal at her own pace.

“Mental illness is intense and takes time for someone to fully recover… it’s a process, and you can’t put limits on when someone will fully recover. Her willingness to go to rehab is a step, so be kind. Let her heal at her own pace! Don’t be harsh where kindness and love are needed,” Mammito wrote.

Despite facing challenges in the past, Sonko expressed his determination to offer Conjestina another opportunity for healing.

“Even though our chances in Conjestina’s healing journey were watered down, I’m a person who doesn’t give up in life. It is for this reason that we have given Conjestina the third and last chance again on her case,” stated Sonko in a social media post.

Sonko highlighted the comprehensive care Conjestina will receive, including the expertise of specialists such as counselors, consultants, and physiatrists at the Mombasa Women’s Hospital.

This fresh start aims to provide the former boxing champion with the support she needs to overcome her challenges.

Former Nairobi Governor Sonko also disclosed the hurdles faced in previous attempts to rehabilitate Conjestina, citing family interference and her return to her rural home as contributing factors to setbacks.

Despite these challenges, Sonko has remained committed to supporting Conjestina in her journey towards recovery.
