Nairobi senator Mike Sonko approached the end year close (2014) a super proud dad. Sonko successfully managed to get his first born daughter Saumu to focus on university education and not joining the socialitesâ€™ lifestyle that leading media houses were trying to lure her into.
It took a special attention of Sonko to get Saumu back on track, she is currently doing well with her studies at JKUATâ€™s Karen Campus.
Saumuâ€™s priorities seem to have changed and she is now training her eyes on politics and from the look of things the beautiful princess may be our next Nairobi power girl even better than Rachel Shebesh.
â€˜Saumu is very much outgoing, and she very well understands campus life â€˜one of her friends told this writer.
Saumu seems to have picked some of the campaign tricks from her dad, she had amazingly gorgeous campaign posters that read in part SAUMU MBUVI SONKO.
It was revealed to us that senator Sonko may have bankrolled her campaigns since elections were fierce and got elected vice chair with a convincing majority.
A few weeks into Student politics and Saumu is a changed personality, she now talks more about leadership, women and youth empowerment unlike before when she could spend much of her time behind the mirror, fashion magazines and global celebrity websites and social media pages following latest fashion trends.
What makes Senator Sonko proud is the fact Saumu is only 19 and at her second year of study, by the time she hits a tired third year prism (TTY) she will have matured politically and intellectually.
However Saumu haters think old habits die hard and are betting their hearts that she may drift back back to the Socialite Lifestyle a thing that the philanthropist senator is opposed to! BUT Hey, who said showbiz is not a career destination? Saumu had indicated her interest in featuring a family reality show sometimes back and yes I bet many Nairobians will be glued if it were to pass.
If she sticks to politics, with her background and close mentorship she may be Nairobi’s NEXT BIG THING Politically speaking.
