Conjestina’s father Clement Adalo said that Conjestina said the government is aware the athlete is mentally incapacitated apart from treatment she received at the Mathari hospital she is has not received further medical help.
He said the government should have continued to monitor Conjestina’s health after she stopped receiving treatment at the hospital.
