Mike Sonko’s Daughter Saumu Reveals Why She Broke Up With Her Boyfriend

(Last Updated On: March 2, 2017)

Mike Sonko’s first born daughter, Saumu Mbuvi, recently broke up with her boyfriend Ben Gatu whom she met while in campus and together they’re currently expecting their first child.

In an Instagram post, Saumu confirms that indeed they have parted ways and the reason she gave was that Ben was moving from one politician’s daughter to another to gain political mileage. He is currently running for a parliamentary seat in Mathioya constituency.

She wrote:

“Just to clear the air I was never married in the first place. I’m just a woman who realized my worth before it was too late . yes we broke up. I’m just too young to go through such bullshit of a man moving from one politician’s daughter to another for his selfish benefits”

This is the first time Saumu has addressed her relationship status.

It is also reported that Sonko didn’t really like the guy since he was suspecting him as someone who is joyriding on Sonko’s name to gain political mileage. “I am very bitter about this and advise other leaders not to allow their daughters or family members to fall into this trap,” Sonko reportedly said.
