Sprinting phenomenal Ferdinand Omanyala has ruled out any chances of ever meeting or hooking up with socialite Huddah Monroe after she made the suggestion.
The socialite who previously said dating a white man was the best option walked back her words after approaching a local publication pleading to be linked with the fast-rising athlete.
"Omanyala is not so bad looking, hapa Kenya ni kama sitoki. Mpasho connect hiyo date," She wrote.
In an interview with Milele FM’s Ankali Ray, the sprinter laughed off Huddah’s intent saying he is a loyal family man.
Omanyala is married to Laventa Omanyala who is also the mother of his son. In a past interview, he disclosed that his wife held him down when he was broke.
"Shetani ashindwe! Huyo hata akituma nini bana hawezi nipata. Kitu anaweza pata maybe ni jina. Simtaki, nishafunga hiyo safari. I'm very loyal to my wife."
(May the devil be defeated. Huddah will never get me, she can gain fame out of this though. I don't want her since I'm already taken and I have already closed that chapter)
"Haiwezi, and unajua bibi yangu anamshinda kwa urembo sasa ninam-chukulia nini? (That is impossible after all my wife is prettier than her so why would I consider her?)
"That will just land me in problems because that is how it starts and then it grows into something else. At the level I'm at, there are things you need to avoid," he added.
Omanyala speaks of other women making similar moves
Ankali would then further enquire why he is so opposed to the hookup.
"Why are you so resistant, do you fear her or what is it?" he asked to which Omanyala said; "You know a girl who has laid out her intentions in that manner is very tricky."
He said he has been facing similar suggestions from women who pose as his fans and has been keen not to fall for those traps.
"It is not only Huddah, I will run away from! If I see any woman coming at me with those similar intentions, I take off. I take off fast like Kipchoge, very fast," he added.
