Saumu Mbuvi has previously accused her baby daddy of being a violent and deadbeat dad.
News of Loitiptip losing the seat saw Saumu head to her Instagram where she called for celebration.
"Congratulations to the new Lamu Senator and Women Rep. Mko wapi tuanze kusherekea," Saumu Mbuvi wrote on Instagram.
Loitiptip who was running as an independent candidate lost to Joseph Githuku of the Jubilee party who beat six other candidates to emerge the winner of the seat.
Loititip had earlier sought to defend is seat under the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) ticket but lost to Francis Mugo Kariuki in the party primaries.
Saumu and Lotitip had a rocky relationship which ended with the two parting ways after Saumu accused the senator of being violent.
“He almost killed me. I will forever fight for women to stand for their rights. Never allow a man to be violent to you,” Saumu said after their break in 2021.
The mother of two further said Loitiptip was not taking care of his child clarifying that the two were never married but were just fiancés.
“The man can't even take care of his own child. Anyway, this thing called life... I thank God I was born a hustler."
Anwar on the other hand admitted to physically assaulting Saumu once but attributed their break-up to mental issues she was undergoing, something he said all her family and friends were aware of.
“She has a mental psychiatric problem called bipolar, that’s why we never stayed together, she breaks things, shouts and loses memory for even a week…. only once before I knew she is suffering from mental problem, call her family members, mine, friends, hospital everyone knows she sick. It’s just you, media guys who don’t know and we opted to hide to safeguard her name, but now she has turned her story to favour her," the Senator said
