When she visited her married lover, vernacular musician Samidoh, born Samuel Muchoki, in the United States of America on November 16, 2022, nominated senator Karen Nyamu uploaded a photo of herself there.
She was shielding herself from the bitter cold in America in the picture by donning Samidoh’s tracksuit jacket and his marvin hat.
Nyamu had traveled to the United States to meet Samidoh, the father of two of her three children, who is currently in Los Angeles, California, preparing for his 2022 Mugithi Tour.
Sonko was among a handful of politicians who cheered on Karen Nyamu as she celebrated being with Samidoh in America.
“Didn’t I tell you to run there (to America) to your man? The winter season is upon them, and the cold is too much that ice cubes are also falling.
Someone cannot sleep alone in bed. You can even see that your man karibu adandiwe (almost left us),” said Sonko alluding to a recent, unspecified incident in which Samidoh was rushed to an emergency room at an American hospital.
