Saying My Father is a Thief Hurts Me, says Sonko’s Daughter Saumu

September 5, 2019

Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko’s daughter Saumu Mbuvi has defended her father’s honour against allegations that he is corrupt.

Speaking to Radio Jambo this week, Saumu said the worst troll about her father is being told that he is a narcotics trafficker. She acknowledged that she gets affected by the bad things people associate her father with.

“It does affect me because they don’t know what kind of a person my dad is. My dad helps a lot in this country. Saying that he is a thief hurts me,” she said.

Ms Mbuvi attributed Sonko’s success to hard work and determination.

“I know he has gone through so much to be where he is,” she told Massawe.

On matters joining politics, Saumu said her current priorities lie elsewhere. “Right now I can’t compete for leadership because I want to empower young girls. I don’t want to rush into politics,” she said.

She disclosed that she will be starting a children’s home in Malindi by June next year.

Saumu’s parting shot to people who speak ill of her and family: “They should look for something else to do.”

She noted: “Being a governor’s daughter does not mean we don’t make mistakes. We all make mistakes.”
