The Nairobi senator further confessed that Hassan had 'disturbed' his heart for many years.
"Nataka kuchukua fursa hii kwanza niwakaribishe nyote katika jiji letu la Nairobi na nikiri kwamba nilikubali mwito huu kwa sababu nilikua na kiu sana ya kukutana na mwanadada mmoja ambaye amenisumbua roho miaka mingi. Anaitwa Sarah Hassan, sijamuona."
"(I want to take this opportunity to first welcome you all to our city of Nairobi and admit that I accepted the invitation because I was eager to meet a young lady who has troubled my heart for many years. Her name is Sarah Hassan, I have not seen her)," Sifuna said.
