Kenyans on Twitter want Joe Mwangi arrested after Wendy Waeni shock revelation

Kenyans on Twitter have heavily condemned and called for the arrest of Joe Mwangi for allegedly using and exploiting the talent of 14-year-old Kenyan gymnast Wendy Waeni.

Speaking on Citizen TV’s Jeff Koinange Live, Wendy accused Joe – her former manager – of using and exploiting her talent for his own personal benefit.

The emotional teen, in the Wednesday night interview, shocked the nation when she revealed that she has not received a single penny from her performances across the globe for the past five years.

“I’ve been performing all over the world, and right now I live in Huruma because of Joe Mwangi. I’ve performed in Rwanda, Germany, and China…and I’ve not got even a single penny. My mum is really suffering right now, she sells sweets, I live in Huruma in a single-room with her,” she said.

“People are telling me that I’m rude, that I’m a brat, that I post things on Instagram…which I don’t really know. I don’t have access to my social media accounts, it’s Joe Mwangi who controls them.”

In his responses however Joe – in a tweet to Duncan Ondimu, Principal Prosecution Counsel in the office of the DPP – implied that he would be seeking legal action.

Kenyans online have however continued to condemn his alleged actions, with a section of them even going ahead to call on the office of the Director of Criminal Investigations (DCI) to arrest him.
