As ailing media personality Njambi Koikai aka Jahmby continues to raise funds towards her medical procedure in the US, A Kenyan woman has taken to social media to spread malicious rumours that the former radio presenter could be conning people.
According to the poster, she has credible info that Ms Koikai is partnering with his mother to swindle gullible Kenyans off their hard-earned cash claiming she needs the money to go abroad for specialised treatment. Here’s a screenshot;
If you’re not in the know, Njambi has been battling endometriosis and has been in and out of hospital with eight surgeries done on her. Well, the local doctors have said no more surgeries as her lungs are scarred enough. She now needs KSh10 million for the ultimate procedure and has so far raised KSh 8million from Kenyans -according her last update.
The rare condition causes the lining of the uterus, medically known as endometrium, to grow in other places, such as the fallopian tubes, the intestines, the colon and in rare cases, the lungs and the brain. Just like what happens during menstruation, the endometrium in the other parts of the body breaks but has nowhere to flow out.
Here’s what Njambi said about the allegations of conning Kenyans:
“It has come to my attention that false information is being shared about the cost of my treatment. I’ve shared my journey from 2015 and the public is aware of this endometriosis battle. My Mom, my sis and I have met all our medical bills even after my grandmother passed away. It’s also quite disappointing to note that close relatives, who have not been supportive are spreading malicious and damaging information.
It is with utmost sincerity that I came out to ask for help because thoracic endometriosis is a rare condition and the specialists dealing with it are in America.
This journey has been a treacherous one but with the support of the millions of Kenyans, I will get treated and come back to help other women facing this condition.
Thank you for your support this far. God bless you.”
