On social media her posts mostly capture her philanthropy – including visiting children homes. But now Saumu Mbuvi, first born daughter of former Nairobi governor Mike Sonko, has clarified that she does not have a foundation.

Saumu has also explained that she is not in any way associated with Sonko Rescue Team, a charity initiative linked to her father.

“There is nothing like Saumu Mbuvi foundation or neither am I involved with any Sonko rescue team activities, so be careful. So in case you see such quickly report that page,” Saumu said.

She also warned her fans of parody Facebook pages bearing her name.

“I only have one Facebook page. I am rarely active there, that is why it’s attached to my Instagram. Whatever I post here is automatically posted there. All those fake pages I don’t know whom they belong to. So be warned of those cheap fraudsters and if you are one of those fraudsters we shall soon find you. And you won’t like how it ends,” she said.

The Sonko Rescue Team was founded by Mr Sonko during his tenure as governor. It employed hundreds of youths who performed cleaning exercises within the city and also beautification of roads and streets.

Immediately after taking office as the second Governor of Nairobi, the Sonko Rescue Team immediately took over most of the work that was for the county workers.

This is not the first time Saumu has come out to call out fraudsters operating social media accounts in her name. In 2020 she warned her fans about a fake account, which said was being operated by one of her followers on Instagram.

Saumu’s father too has been targeted by online cons who run numerous accounts bearing his name mushroomed on social media. Last year, the former governor’s wife also issued a similar warning to her fans on social media.
