Dead and forgotten: Saumu Mbuvi responds to queries about her baby daddies

By Winnie Mabel September 29th, 2022 2 min read

Saumu Mbuvi, the eldest daughter to former Nairobi governor Mike Sonko, didn’t mince words to mince when she was asked about the fathers to her two daughters.

This was evident in the responses she gave during a question and answer session she held on Instagram on September 28.

One follower, probably basing her question on Saumu’s past public sour experiences with her baby daddies, asked how one could get over bitterness caused by unsupportive, narcissistic baby daddies.

Saumu responded by first posting the quote: “If the eyes of a female cry over a man, the angels curse him on every step he walks- Imam Ali (as).”

“My dear, leave vengeance for God. When you carry too much bitterness, you will block your own blessing… it is in the Quran that tears of a woman are very powerful, it’s like a curse,” Saumu told the follower.

But when her fans thought she was being diplomatic and trying to keep things unruffled, another follower asked her if she had moved on from her “short ex.”

She responded with an unbridled laughter and accompanied with a final savage answer.

“Mumesema ni new era (you have said we are in a new era)… hakuna chills (there are no chills). Weh. Dead and forgotten my dear,” Saumu closed the case.

Saumu has in the past dated businessman Benson Gatu and former Lamu Senator Anwar Loitiptip, who are the fathers of her two daughters. Saumu and Gatu had what appeared to be a very serious relationship and she even introduced him to her dad. But the two broke up when it emerged that Gatu cheated on her with another governor’s daughter.

The drama played out in public as claims were made that Gatu was an abusive partner, claims which he denied. Later on, Saumu met and fell for Loitiptip and had another baby with him. Things ended on a sour note after it also emerged the then sitting Senator was an alleged philanderer and a violent man.

“We started as friends and dated for nine months and we broke up when I was heavily pregnant. He used to beat me and after sharing with pals I went to my dad and told him. I couldn’t take it more. I told him ‘I know I have wronged you,’ and he accepted me back as a father,” Saumu later recounted.

“I was young and naïve. I rushed to get married. I got into a relationship after graduating. I wouldn’t advise women to be in a toxic relationship. a relationship which will drag you emotionally…  Don’t allow violence in a relationship,” she said Saumu after one of the break ups.

Saumu now takes care of her children with the help of her family. She has in the past been observed being cordial with Gatu as they co-parent their daughter.
