Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko is a lover of life and the finer things therein. So does his first born daughter Saumu Mbuvi who has a repute for painting the town Indigo while partying hard with big boys.
On Sunday, June 2, at about 2 am at the Memphis Lounge- a popular club near United States International University- Saumu was having a good time with Lamu Senator Anwar Loitiptip.
Loitiptip had been with Ms Agnes Saumu Mbuvi when they were attacked by unknown men as they left the club.
Saumu told police that she had been with the senator at the club that Saturday night watching the UEFA Champions League finals and had excused herself to the washrooms when the trouble began.
While at the washrooms, a man confronted her pulling her blouse that he allegedly tore.She told police she screamed in the confrontation in the toilet and an unknown person hurled a stone towards her.
Her attacker let her off and got into another room near the toilet. By then, the Senator who was apparently alerted of the incident and rushed there to save her. According to Saumu, Loitiptip told off the man declaring the governor’s daughter was his girlfriend.
“The man came out of the room and pleaded for forgiveness and I told Anwar to let him go,” she said.And as the senator and Saumu walked to the parking lot at about 2.40 am where their car was parked, they were attacked by about nine men who were in the company of the brown man who had confronted her in the toilet.
She said the gang bludgeoned the senator with clubs. Saumu told police in her statement she tried to cover Loitiptip from the beating using her hand and she sustained injuries on her right hand.The gang escaped from the site leaving a bleeding senator and the woman on the ground. Saumu said she called her cousin and stepsister who helped her to take the legislator to the hospital.
The Jubilee senator sustained deep head cuts in the fracas before he was rushed to the Aga Khan Hospital where he is admitted.
Police say they are holding a bouncer at the club in connection with the attack and they are looking for five others who were involved.
It is also not clear if the men knew the woman prior to the brawl and if she knew them.
It is also not clear why he termed Ms Mbuvi his girlfriend when he is married to an AP officer-Sophie Mohamed attached to a local bank along Thika Superhighway in Nairobi.
Anwar in recent interviews said that he has been living with Sophie as husband and wife and they’re blessed with a beautiful daughter.
“It’s too late for those who have been drooling over me. I am taken and have been dating Sophie for three years now.
She is all I wanted in a woman, in fact, I cannot choose another woman over her. I know that being a public figure has its challenges like dealing with stalkers, but they can try another senator since I am not in the market” Said Anwar who is of Maasai and Swahili extraction.
During this year’s elections, Anwar trounced the oldest politician at the Coast, 70-year-old Abu Chiaba during nominations, before clinching the Senate seat in the August 8 General Election.
The graduate of Kampala International University campaigned on his mother’s ambulance, motorbike and later a Probox.
