Here’s why the Ababus are flossing over planned family trip to Europe

Ababu Namwamba’s wife can’t wait for the family’s next trip abroad, and it has nothing to do with the latest political fortunes of her flamboyant husband.

Apparently, the newly appointed Chief Administrative Secretary in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and his family will in about two month’s time travel to France to watch the finals of this year’s Europa League.

This is according to Ababu’s wife Prisca who recently gushed out on social media over her family’s forthcoming excursion.

In a Facebook post, the politician’s better half also revealed their family’s allegiance to English club Arsenal, which she hopes will overcome its current poor form and make it to the final of Europe’s second tier club competition.

“Very loyal fans here. But last night, waaah!,” Prisca captioned a photo of her entire family in Arsenal replica jerseys.


She added: “We suffered, only love saved us lol! Losing 1-2 to Osterund at Emirates.. Osterund Whaat? Anywhoo, these 5 loyalists will keep cheering and screaming COYG. And we have already booked tickets to the Europa League final at Stade de Lyon in France on May 16. Now that is some faith, no?”

Arsenal are set to meet AC Milan in the round of 16 of the competition with the first leg set to be played on March 6.

Namwamba completed his political transformation some time last year by ditching the opposition and throwing his weight behind President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Although he lost his Budalang’i parliamentary seat for his troubles during the August 8, 2017 general election, he was recently rewarded with the plum job in the newly created cabinet position of Chief Administrative Secretary

Away from politics, Namwamba has never hidden his love for football and his planned tripped to France in very much in his character of spoiling his family with romantic trips across the globe, and while at it flaunting about it on social media.
