A supporter recently made fun of Senator Nyamu for buying Samidoh a costly drink and allegedly receiving a lousy gift in response to Edday's Facebook post.

"“Kule kwingine ata baada ya kununua pombe ya 420 lakini malipo...Hakuna ila maombi,"  a Facebook user wrote on Edday's page.

Edday, who has in the past had issues with Nyamu responded by saying, "Hizo huwa kama prescription."


Recently, Karen had refuted the domestic violence accusations in response to widespread anxiety expressed on social media.

Senator Nyamu addressed the online rumours that her black eye was the consequence of domestic abuse on Sunday night during a Facebook live broadcast.
