Karen Nyamu Issues Apology To Samidoh's Wife

Nairobi politician Karen Nyamu has issued an apology to the wife of Kikuyu musician Samuel Mucoki alias Samidoh.

In an interview on Jalang'o TV, the former Nairobi CEC apologized to Edith ‘Edday’ Nderitu, who was dragged into the middle of an online swordfight between Nyamu and Samidoh after a video of him enjoying his moment with their child went viral.

"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 disclosed that she had no idea that Samidoh was married. The musician didn't wear a ring for the whole duration of their relationship, leading to Nyamu only knowing of Samidoh's marriage through nominated Nairobi MCA Mary Njambi.

"I did not know Samidoh was married. I only got to know when Mafiriri MCA told me. She is the one who saw us together and told me that the musician was married.

"I only got to know later when I was already in this thing. I am not playing saint and I am not here to pretend," she continued.

Nyamu also stated that she had received several incessant 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, shutting down speculation that he had left his wife to start a family with the lawyer, also working as a Director at the Nairobi Water and Sewerage Company.

“I am however perturbed by the motive and timing of these past videos which have led to unnecessary trolling of the child and my wife, I have never left my wife of 11 years for another woman.

"I apologized to her and my family before. I now apologize to you my fans for setting a bad example,” he stated on Instagram.
