Saumu Mbuvi, the daughter of politician Mike Mbuvi Sonko, has broken up with her boyfriend, Senator Anwar Loitiptip.
The 26-year-old mother of two confirmed that she had parted ways with the Lamu senator because of irreconcilable differences.
In a question and answer session on Instagram with her fans, Saumu said she had to quit the relationship because it had become abusive, accusing Senator Loitiptip of physically assaulting her.
“There are things he did to me, He almost killed me I will forever fight for women to stand for their rights. Never allow a man to be violent to you,” said Saumu Mbuvi.
Saumu shared her photo showing a swollen face and bruised lips, suggesting that it was Senator Loitiptip’s doing.
Saumu promised to share more damning details with regards to her nasty break-up with the lawmaker at a later date.
Saumu and Loitiptip welcomed their baby on March 8, 2020, an occasion that coincided with International Women’s Day. The two had been dating since 2019.
Their daughter also shares a birthday with her elder sister and Saumu’s first child whom she sired with businessman-cum-politician Ben Gatu.
Saumu broke up with Gatu over domestic violence.
“We started as friends, dated for nine months, and we broke up when I was heavily pregnant. He used to beat me and after sharing with my pals, I went to my dad and told him I couldn’t take it anymore. I told him ‘I know I have wronged you’, and he accepted me back as a father,” Saumu said when she was breaking up with Gatu.
