    Nyamu, however, added that she had a problem with people tagging her as a homewrecker especially every time Samidoh posted his other children on social media. 

    “I have been with Samidoh since 2019 but there has not been any drama. It is only until the baby was born that the drama started coming up,” Nyamu told Jalang’o.

    The politician went ahead to apologise to Samidoh’s wife Edith Mucoki.  

    “I am very sorry for the anguish that I may have caused you and all along I thought you knew because your husband told me you knew. No excuses, I am sorry for everything,” Nyamu stated.

    Nyamu also stated that she had received numerous calls from influential figures asking her not to engage in the back and forth with the musician’s family.

    The politician was forced to respond after Samidoh issued a statement on Tuesday, March 2, dismissed speculation that he had left his wife to start a family with the former Nairobi CEC. 

    “I have put my family and myself in a bad situation. It is true I had a relationship with Miss Karen Nyamu… I have never left my wife of 11 years for another woman, ” read Samidoh’s Facebook post.
