Politician and Lawyer Karen Nyamu says she dated a violent politician who changed her mind to ever get married.

Speaking during an interview with Massawe Japanni on Radio Jambo, Karen said she dated the married politician for two years.

Karen was working in his company then.

I  love having children and getting a family is a good thing but I have made the decision based on my past experience. There was insecurity and obsessiveness

"I am not interested in getting married after my past experience with a man who turned out to be very violent. I was in my early 20's and he was in government."

Karen who vied for Nairobi Women representative position in 2017, said the politician was also very protective and she felt very insecure with men.

Asked on whether she reported the matter to the police, Karen said;

"I was very young and the guy was famous. I felt very intimidated that even if I report nothing would be done to him and so I did not report. I thank God I left the relationship."

Karen, however, said that she is looking forward to getting three kids.
