Saumu Mbuvi is the beloved firstborn daughter of Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko Mbuvi and the wife to Lamu Senator Anwar Loitiptip, but politics is not her cup of tea.
Living her life in the spotlight and having a parent who is always in the limelight is enough experience for Saumu to know that she had no chops for politics.
The social activist hosted a live session with her fans to talk about all things mental health awareness.
One of the fans asked her if she ever wants to venture into politics like her dad and hubby.
Without hesitating Saumu said,
“I cannot handle politics it is too much pressure. I’m a weakling it can break me. However, I’m super proud of what my dad does.”
“For me, humanitarian services make me happy. I feel like I have achieved my purpose in life, I sleep well at night.”
Saumu explained that “people put a lot of focus on the money and posh cars, and showing the life on social media with the intent of creating a social media character. But that is not me. I’m so focused on how life will be like after this (Instagram live) will I be at peace, contented, I’m focused on life after this.”
Asked why women on social media keep bashing each other and pulling each other down, Saumu who is a victim of this vicious trend said,
“I don’t know where the hate comes from. To maintain your mental health, you need to know what pulls you down. Women we go through a lot that we don’t share and it gets hard. Try to look for someone who can help. We should normalise looking for help and stop suffering in silence. I don’t want to see people destroying themselves.”
