As the famous phrase says; Mwanaume ni Kujituma

Shem Beverton Mukalo, the son of a sugar cane cutter from Emuhaya, Vihiga County shocked many by pouring out his love for Ngina Kenyatta. 

The 30-year-old first came into the limelight after writing a love letter to 31-year old Ngina Kenyatta. 

Speaking exclusively to Mpasho, Shem said he meant every word in his love poem, and the President's daughter is the apple of his eye. 

"People were telling me that the intelligence officers are going to come for me. But I told them this is just a letter celebrating a great woman, I haven't abused anyone. Why should I be afraid? They are just human like me. My conscience is clear coz I was just appreciating a great woman," he said.

According to him, his love letter to Ngina came after a breakup with his girlfriend, and to him, the President's daughter is the ideal woman. 

He loves the dignity and elegance displayed by Ngina Kenyatta during her few public appearances. 

"I have a romantic interest in her. I know very well that is punching above my weight because she is a member of the higher society.

If it comes sooner, well and good. I am just hopeful. I am also aware of the fact that it might not happen. I am hoping for the best and at the same time, preparing for the worst. I am ready for the worst," the man from Kakamega said.  

He said he is ready to meet President Uhuru Kenyatta.

"If I did not want to have him as my father-in-law, I wouldn't have taken the struggle of writing that romantic letter. "

In his love letter, Shem promised to take Ngina on a world tour, I asked him if he has the money to spoil the rich kid; 

"I am a very ambitious man, my situation right now might not be financially good. I might not be able to take her around the world as of now but in a few year's time, I believe I will have amassed the finances through hard work."

His mother came to learn about his letter to Ngina Kenyatta on June 14, days after he wrote it. She was worried about the safety of her son after he confessed love for a member of high society. 

Shem said he does not mind the fact that Ngina Kenyatta is a year older than him. To him, age is just a number and a non-issue in his pursuit of love. 

Additionally, he said that girls have been flocking his inbox on Facebook since his bold letter to the President's daughter.
