He used to beat me up until I told my father – Sonko’s daughter on split with baby daddy

Saumu revealed that her relationship with Gatu had been a mistake made out of youthful ignorance, saying she was beaten up on several occasions.

“I was young and naïve and I rushed to marriage life. I was 21 and it was one of those rebellious things people do in their youth despite advise from parents and friends.

I would advise young girls to stay away from violent relationships. It begins with a slap and next he puts a knife against you. The violence was there and I shared with my friend until it got so bad until I told my father,” Saumu narrated during an interview with a local radio station.

She added that despite her father’s confrontational approach in politics, he reacted by counselling her and offering fatherly guidance.

Despite him being a politician and a leader, he reacted as a father. He called me aside and asked me to take shape of my life as I had become my father. There was no drama of attacking Ben or anything, we just went our separate ways,” she added.

Saumu urged single mothers to ensure their children have a father figure in their life - saying her current boyfriend, Lamu Senator Anwar Loitiptip, was playing the same role in her child's life.
