Joe Mwangi used, abused and exploited Wendi Waeni. He even censored and stripped her from using her social media. I hope the charges for Crimes Against Children is clear in the constitution.— Mundhir Abdirahman (@Mundhirahmed) August 7, 2019

Wendy Waeni is a child & I trust her word ... Joe Mwangi used her & her social media accounts to enrich himself ... Joe exploited her innocence to get access to Presidents & powerful men ... Joe Mwangi should be charged with international crimes of Child Slavery & Trafficking.— Donald B Kipkorir (@DonaldBKipkorir) August 8, 2019
