Benson Gatu has confirmed that he's single.
The businessman-cum-politician during a live video on his Instagram asked his followers to ask him anything they would like to know about him.
He started by saying;
There's so much that has been written about me [in the media]. Some of it is true and some of it is not. Everyone has a perception of someone and I've given people the freedom to ask me, however stupid a question is.
He responded to questions from his fans adding that he was not seeing anyone.
Why am I not dating? It is by choice.
Actually, the last time I was in Nanyuki was in 2016 and I left there with a girlfriend. That's when I started dating Saumu so I'm not coming to Nanyuki anytime soon, at least not now.
Coz I ain't into that sh** you know.
Saumu and Gatu have a child together. They broke up a few months before their daughter was born.
Another fan asked what happened to his relationship with Murang'a Governor Mwangi wa Iria's daughter, Racheal Wanja, and he said;
Like I said.. just a difference of opinions and priorities. So basically that's it.
Gatu also talked about business and his personal life. He said he was off alcohol until recently.
I never drank alcohol for the past 5 years but last year shetani...
Both Saumu and Racheal have spoken about their failed relationships with Ben Gatu. Recently Mwangi wa Iria's governor said that the broke up because things didn't work out between them.
SH* HAPPENS, YOU KNOW? IT’S JUST A THING WITH YOUNG PEOPLE… IT’S NORMAL! AND HONESTLY, THE TRUTH IS I SHOULD BE ANGRY, RESENTFUL AND DISILLUSIONED ABOUT RELATIONSHIPS BUT I’M NOT. LOVE DID NOT WORK WITH THAT PERSON. BUT IT CAN WORK WITH ANOTHER.
