Popular gymnast, Wendy Waeni, has exposed a con-artist who robbed off her hard-earned talent and left her with abject poverty.
Wendy Waeni came into the limelight a few years ago and has been known for doing complex gymnastics and performing to the head of state.
She soon found a path with her manager, Joe Mwangi, and got a chance to perform to president Kenyatta, his counterpart Kagame, and even traveled all the way to China and other parts of the world.
However, the Wendy Waeni we see on social media is not the real Wendy in person, her ex-manager Joe Mwangi has been posting pictures of the young talented gymnast and even commenting on social media.
In 2017, through Waeni’s Instagram page, a video was shared of her driving and flaunting her ‘new’ Range Rover Velar which her followers noded that for real, ‘Amefika’.
Ladies and Gentlemen, i bring to you Joe mwangi a great scammer after the fixed match sellers. Man has misused wendys chance by misusing all her earnings. Her mum is a hawker in town, whereas Wendy is out there smashing the cash 😪.https://t.co/NrW6ciViEh pic.twitter.com/6KOxxbCJxq

Kenyans on Twitter were shocked on Wendy’s revelations that have seen Joe Mwangi blasted for exploiting a minor.
Wendy Waeni is a child & I trust her word … Joe Mwangi used her & her social media accounts to enrich himself … Joe exploited her innocence to get access to Presidents & powerful men … Joe Mwangi should be charged with international crimes of Child Slavery & Trafficking.
