Kenya: Former Miss Kenya Undergoes Knee Surgery

Former Miss Kenya Susan Anyango is admitted at Nairobi Hospital since Sunday. Susan, who was the reigning beauty queen in 2011/2012, was undergoing a knee surgery. The beauty queen said that the surgery was as a result of injuries that she incurred years ago while playing basketball.

"It was really affecting my catwalk lifestyle which currently is my source of livelihood. I don't know for how long I'm going to be admitted here but I just hope that the pain will go away as soon as I leave this hospital bed," Susan told Word Is from her hospital bed.

Meanwhile, the beauty queen also revealed that she was still pursuing her dreams to establish a cancer foundation in Kenya. Her passion to fight cancer was motivated in memory of her mother who died of leukemia.

"I'm still in talks with a few donors and supporters. I will start being more vocal as soon as everything is set," she said. Susan who is currently the Bata shoe company ambassador, said that she had been approached for more endorsements but no deals have been sealed yet.
