Who´s word against who´s? It is now push and pull between Wendy Waeni and ex-manager, Joe Mwangi

Teenage acrobat, Wendy Waeni has exposed her former manager, Joe Mwangi for taking advantage of her expertise to mint money for himself.

Up and close with Citizen TV´s smoking hot, Jeff Koinange, the girl revealed that despite showcasing her talent across the globe, her family lives in abject poverty.

Back then, the 14-year old staged performances in Germany, China and Rwanda where she rubbed shoulders with prominent business leaders and politicians.

She shared:


Apparently, her family resides in a single-room house in Huruma, Nairobi. And her mother sells sweets and cigarettes to feed her family.

The young talent disclosed:

My mother is really suffering. She’s working right now (10 pm). She sells sweets and cigarettes at night and we’re in this situation because of Joe Mwangi. Ever since I started performing across the globe, my mum has never gotten a single penny.

The Kenyan gymnast further revealed that CS Fred Matiangi is the one who actually caters for her education until she graduates.

Speaking to Jeff, Waeni sadly narrates:

My dad left me when I was three and living in Mathare, it was tough with my mom because she did not have a job. I have never seen him again, he does not know what goes on in my life. I would want to keep in touch and he is my dad and I have never had a male figure in my life.

Dr Fred Matiangi is paying my fees, it´s Joe Mwangi who asked him and he will do so till I graduate.

All hope is not lost for her because:

He is my dad no matter what happened, dad I forgive you I don´t know if you are watching just come home.


ODM party Secretary General, Edwin Sifuna further revealed Joe Mwangi´s extortion skills to con the youngster her hard-earned money.

According to Sifuna, he once wrote a cheque to Waeni´s foundation but the manager insisted that it has to be sent to his account.

I don’t know about child trafficking but one time Wendy came to Orange house and we cut a cheque for her foundation to buy some play stuff. Weeks later Joe Mwangi came asking us to change it and write the cheque in his name. I cancelled the whole thing.

Further on, renowned songstress, Suzana Owiyo shares screenshots of her chats with the young acrobat posting:

As seen in the screenshots, Mwangi sought financial support from the singer all in the name of ¨Waeni´s foundation¨.

Wendy sadly noted that Joe would use her social media accounts for selfish gains.

It ‘s really so sad when people tell me I’m rude, I am a brat because 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.


As we speak, Becky Wangari is Joe´s replacement therefore, current manager.

Wendy´s story has touched the hearts of many who urge her to forward the matter to the DCI for swift action to be taken against her ex-manager, Joe Mwangi.

However, Joe comes out to instead deny having ever traveled with the young acrobat outside the country, let alone con her.

Contrary to the denial, a video as posted by TV47´s managing director, Eugine Anangwe, shows Mwangi in the company of Wendy back in 2016 when she met Rwanda´s president, Paul Kagame.

Further questioning how anyone´s parent would sit and watch such happening to their own kid:

For now, Joe Mwangi´s plea to Kenyans is:


Kenyans were not at all impressed by the lies Joe was busy spreading, pretending to be the victim here and they lash out at him instead.
