In October 2018, a lady only known as Sophie, excited netizens by her claim of being abandoned by Cabinet secretary for Trade and Industrialisation in the Government of Kenya Peter Munya Gatirau.
The unbowed Sophie who seemingly reached her limits went on to give details of how CS Munya and herself had good life that eventually led to the birth of their beautiful girl.
“Governor peter Munya supported me all through my pregnancy till I gave birth in January 2016. All this time time everything
he did for me was in cash..at no time did Munya deposit any coin in my account and for sure hajui hata (he doesn’t even know) my account number.” She began.
She went on to reveal that, Mr Munya had seen their child grow only to stop sending upkeep,
“He has seen my kid grow till 2016 July when he stopped paying rent and started ignoring my calls and SMSs for reason I personally don’t know.”
Sophie recapitulated how they met at Mt Kenya Safari club when she was still studying, “I met him in 2015 at the Mt Kenya Safari club, then I was a student at KMTC doing nursing and salonist. For a number of days now Munya has not been talking to me or replying my texts.”
She on to give finer details of how their love deteriorated and how Munya’s love for her faded away till he cut the talks, “On Tuesday last week I just texted him and told him that the baby was sick he did not reply my message when I threatened him of reporting the matter to the police he texted me on a what’s up and told me that he was going to kill me. I can still produce the what’s up chat I have them he also said that he will say that he gives me 100000. I want him to be honest to God and explain about his bank transactions to any of my accounts ,which is this account he deposits?
She futher detailed the gains she got from Mr Munya, “The only thing Munya did is to rent house for me in a furnished apartment in Westlands Church road at 180,000 per month for 10 months when I gave birth and bring me shopping or tell me to go to Westlands where he had an office at Delta corner. He also bought me a car which I dont know how much its costed.”
Life later became hard that she couldn’t keep up with, this prompted her action on social media,
“My life is becoming hard having a one year old baby whose father has neglected us. My parents always ask me to take my husband home for them to see him but because of Munya threat’s am always afraid to tell them who is my child’s father. I have photos we were taken together during our happier days at Sportsman Arms in nanyuki. I don’t request anything from him all I want is for him to take care of his daughter.” She revealed.
It’s this embarrassment that made CS Peter Munya to make a quick about-turn and start embracing her young family. This came few months after the murder of university student Sharon Otieno.
Those on the know claimed that the CS Peter Munya feared that the no nonsense President would even fire him for abandoning his child.
It was until this year that Ms Sophie and CS Munya have been heard of. And were it not for the unruly behaviour of the CS Munya where residents of an estate located in Westlands area are claiming that the good CS takes all the parking lot with his official cars especially on weekends, nobody would have known how they moved on or where they live. Love seemed to have blossomed yet again between the two.
