A city woman’s noble gesture of saving her childhood friend from drug addiction and life in the streets has returned to haunt her.
False reports emerged over the weekend on social media of how she plans to marry the former drug addict.
The woman, Wanja Mwaura, had in October 2017 saved her former classmate, identified only as Hinga, from the streets and drug abuse and took her to a rehabilitation centre.
A nurse by profession, Ms Mwaura melted hearts on social media after sharing pictures of Hinga’s transformation.
But over the weekend, a Kenyan blogger twisted the story with claims that she had finally fallen for Hinga and was committed in tying the knot with him.
On Monday morning, Ms Mwaura outed blogger Mutai and wrote; “This is how someone can twist a story. Am shocked.”
Hinga was taken to a Limuru based rehabilitation centre and has undergone a total transformation since October 2017.
An early Christmas visit to Hinga had featured a cake cutting ceremony that was twisted to start the rumour of the two dating.
In her 10th week update on Hinga’s progress on January 6, Wanja shared photos of a well-built Hinga who will be completing his 90 days rehabilitation in two weeks.
When asked if there’s a plan to help Hinga not to relapse after rehabilitation, Wanja commented; “It is already planned and implemented.”
