Kenyan women striving to remain in the market, liposuction getting its way into women’s heart

“After I lost weight, there was the whole plus size community who came to me, asking how i did it, it was a personal decision, all I can say is be happy in your skin.”

This were the sentiments from Kalekye Mumo after revealing that she had gone through a liposuction procedure.

The podcaster noted that the most difficult part of the experience was managing pain and that she was taking the time to rest.

Murugi further explained to her fans that her recovery would take a considerable amount of time, promising to give details once she is fully recovered.
