K24 TV news anchor Anjlee Gadhvi on Saturday, October 26, prepared a report about a woman who had faked cancer for a while only for her to admit it was all a lie.
In the report that aired on prime time show Weekend With Betty, news anchor Gadhvi exposed Patricia Warugi who had faked the disease to gain sympathy.
In the video, the station kept showing a number of images of the Warugi at Mediamax offices suggesting that she was an employee at the institution.
The report started with Warugi recounting how she suffered shortly after discovering that she was suffering from the deadly disease and the turmoil it caused her and her family.
She even revealed that it had grown so serious that at some point, she had the option of terminating her pregnancy in order to survive since her kidneys were too weak to support it.
“We do checks and I have the polycystic ovarian syndrome. It is a condition where the ovary has excess cysts. I had so many in my system that they needed surgery to remove them,” she said.
“The side effects (of the treatments) are what killed me. I couldn’t stand and the first day I stood, my mother was helping me and I flooded myself.”
She went on to add that she suffered from the disease for a while and had gone through rigorous treatment until she survived.
Her narration moved Anjlee to a point she got a make-up team to style her because that was her biggest dream.
Shortly after the report was filed, however, Warugi was ready to change the script and admit that she had lied about the whole disease because it was considered the ‘it disease’.
“I am a compulsive liar… When you are a liar, compulsive or pathological, you are a good liar. You have no choice but to keep up the appearances and to remember what you said and when you said it. The thing with cancer is that it has become the ‘it disease’… Cancer is the biggest lie I have told,” she stated.
