City lawyer and former Nairobi woman representative hopeful karen Nyamu has come out to dismiss all the rumours of her alleged romantic links with Jacob Juma and ex-Nairobi governor Mike Sonko.

Karen who was speaking in an interview on Youtube says it was quite a shock for her when she read about Juma links on blogs.

“I knew Juma but we did not have any romantic relationship,” she stated.

While the rumour took a toil on her, she noted she has since developed a tough skin and such stories don’t move her anymore.

“I remember crying on my way home after reading the story from blogs but not anymore,” she added.

Speaking about her relationship with Sonko, Karen says she knew him and his family back during her college days.

Terming him as a very unpredictable politician, Karen noted that their relationship is still strong and the two have been keeping in touch.

Speaking on her current job as a director at Nairobi Water, she says the interviewing process was authentic and Sonko did not have a hand.

The mother of two says she is still vying for a political seat but did not reveal further details.

She says most of her campaign funding in 2017 elections were from her clients from her law firm.

Although she did not win, she stated that the experience was quite an eye opener and invaluable for her future political journey.

The second born in a family of four says her father is fully supportive of her political ambitions and while many consider her as wild, she is very conservative, prayerful and focused.
