Samidoh’s wife, Edday Nderitu has left her fans amused after she revealed her unexpected role model in a humorous TikTok post.

In a video shared on her TikTok account, Edday was seen in a restaurant, sipping her beverage with a mischievous smile.

The caption accompanying the video read:

“I wasn’t gonna drink today but man, I miss my role model Lucy Kibaki.”

Edday’s cryptic statement sent her fans into a guessing frenzy, as they tried to decipher the meaning behind her cheeky post.

Several fans took to the comments section to share their wild guesses and amusement:

@mukamirita: “Especially that part when Mama Lucy made Kibaki announce he only has one wife 😁😁😄”

Kihiki Understanding: Role model wake Lucy kibaki juu alikua anachapa watu vile Edday alifyatua Kiwinya Dubai😂😂

@Shishi Maina: “If you don’t understand the caption, forget about it 😂.”

@lenah makena: “We all miss that tough lady; she really fought hard to protect her family.”

Tabby Kimani: You people give this girl time healing is a process mtu umezaa nayeye 3 kids kumtoa kwa akili sio mchezo it takes time let her be n I pray she gets healed ata asiharakishe to get another Man

@suziedarsh: “I only have one wife! 🤣🤣🤣 Edday, wacha bangi 🤣🤣🤣.”

@Julz Nyams: “Is he gonna announce that he is only married to our only gal Eddy? 🥰”

For those who may not fully grasp the humor in the comments, the late former First Lady Lucy Kibaki once famously urged her husband, the late President Mwai Kibaki, to publicly declare that he had only one wife—her.

In January 2003, President Mwai Kibaki held a press conference at State House, Nairobi, to address the nation, in what was considered a relatively common occurrence.

Standing beside him was the ever-serious First Lady, a familiar sight.

However, what set this particular press conference apart was the unexpected message he delivered to the nation. Extending his right hand toward her, he declared:

“This is my wife Lucy, and I want to emphasize something that I hope you will cherish and keep in your hearts forever.”

During this address, President Kibaki unequivocally stated:

“I am a married man, and I have only one beloved wife, a fact known to everyone in Kenya.” While the context may have appeared unusual, it was not unprecedented for President Kibaki to take such a public stance to assert that he was married to only one woman—Lucy Muthoni Kibaki.

The press conference took place during a time when allegations were circulating about the late president’s alleged second marriage, making Lucy’s demand for a public declaration.

Lucy Kibaki passed on at a London hospital in 2016 after a long illness.
