Mike Sonko’s daughter Saumu Mbuvu reads blogger Edgar Obare riot act following ‘expose’
Former Nairobi governor Mike Sonko’s eldest daughter, Saumu Mbuvi, had no words to mince when she read renowned tea master Edgar Obare the riot act against tarnishing her name for the sake of generating gossip.
Ms Mbuvi’s response came after Edgar Obare released ‘tea’ from a woman who claimed Saumu Mbuvi, through her charitable works, helped street children for a while and then abandoned them after promising to support them in rehabilitation centers and with jobs.
On Wednesday, April 5, 2023, Saumu posted a long response to Obare and the source of his tea, telling them of telling lies and him not doing due diligence in investigating his source’s agenda before releasing his infamous tea.
“Edgar Obare, I want to clear some things out to you before you continue tarnishing my name for no good reason. One, I have been doing my charitable activities ever since BuruBuru Girls. Two, I have had my little feeding programs of street families for the last 6 years as just a way to give back to God and plus both my parents raised me with the virtue of sharing the little I have with the less fortunate. And I honestly enjoy doing that.
Three, I recently opened an organization but our main identity is not on street families but on mental health. Four, The lady claiming to be abandoned, who I helped her with where i could and reunited her with her family which I am still in communication with, her mum is a well-learned lecturer who is ready to support her. Kindly ask her what she still wants from the streets id not clout which I’m not interested in by involving the lives of people in need. And five, anything I’m doing is out of my own savings which I have never complained since I’m so passionate about…” said Saumu in part.
Saumu also went ahead to tell Obare she has been feeding street families since Covid-19 hit Kenya in 2019 and his source was the one who had been supervising her how to go about it. Saumu revealed that Edgar’s tea source was also given the job of coordinator at her organization but she ended up swindling the organization of money and used it to buy hard drugs.
“The next day she told me I am not God…while high on whatever she had consumed from the money my team and I had contributed to get a record of the street kids that need reunion with their families. What we got was pure disaster. I kept forgiving her until I had a deep conversation with her family and honestly, decided to give up recently and removed her from my group and her duties. If she had the best interest of those street families, she would first set a good example to them by changing,:” added Saumu.
She also told Obare to put some respect on her name because she was not interested in any of their clout chasing games and was focused don her charitable activities and doing God’s work.
