Steve Chemogos is trying to keep his girlfriend, Wangechi Mwangi, who has seemingly been swept off her feet by Magret Nyairera. Chemogos told The Nairobian that he met Wangechi in 2017, but the female athlete is giving him competition for her affection. Chemogos recalls the ordeal in tears saying that:
I HAVE A LOT OF FRIENDS WHO ARE ATHLETES AND SHE ALSO HAS FRIENDS WHO ARE ATHLETES. WE MET WHEN I WAS WITH THE ATHLETES WHO HAPPENED TO BE HER FRIENDS TOO. WHEN I SAW HER FOR THE FIRST TIME, MY HEART SKIPPED A BIT. I KNEW SHE WAS MY LONG LOST RIB AND I KNEW DEEP DOWN THAT OUR MATCH WAS MADE IN HEAVEN
Margaret Nyairera has referred to Wangechi as ‘darling’ in many of her online posts and in one post, Wangechi responded in one post:
ALL THE BEST SWEETHEART… SUCCESS IS ALL WE WANT… I KNOW YOU WILL DO IT, DARLING… MUCH LOVE
Nyairera commented on the post thus: “Thanks darling I do appreciate you”. Now, this post got Steve’s attention and it did not rub him the right way. The post was apparently to wish the athlete success in the Commonwealth Games.
Chemogo told Nairobian that the drama is really hurting him saying:
I REALIZED RECENTLY THAT THEY WERE BECOMING VERY CLOSE. I KNEW IT WOULD BREAK MY HEART BECAUSE I LOVE WANGECHI WITH ALL MY BEING. I CONFRONTED NYAIRERA WHO DID NOT DENY THE RELATIONSHIP, BUT INSTEAD CLAIMED THAT I SHOULD HAVE KNOWN.
