Unless you live under a rock, you must have come across, Wanja Mwaura and her friend Patrick “Hinga” Wanjiru.
Sometime last year the story of how Wanja Mwaura rescued her childhood friend Hinga from a hopeless life by the dumpsite caused the hearts of Kenyans to melt.
The kind nurse asked her friends and family to support her cause of saving Hinga who is a dear friend of hers through a Paybill account.
She was then advised to take Hinga to Chiromo Lane Medical Centre for detoxification before admitting him to a rehabilitation centre.
Hinga successfully finished his detoxification but he ran a bill of Ksh.149,000 which luckily was waived by the hospital, due to the massive social media response Hinga’s story attracted.
The good tidings continued with the retreat rehabilitation center choosing to waive the Ksh.300,000 bill that is the cost of the three months he will be there.
Well turns out the two have since fallen out. According to a recent bitter update of Hinga’s progress, Wanja expressed deep regrets she wrote;
“In conclusion of the matter, I regret helping Hinga. It had brought me more tears, unnecessary stress etc. If I knew, I should have looked the other way and walk away. For those who are trying to tarnish my name over it, go ahead and do so. Never again will I ever help a person even if I find them on their death bed. My conscience is clear.”
