Karen was forced to address the issue after netizens went to her Instagram page to call her out... while a select few seemingly grew even more fond of her due to her rebellious ways.

"We root for you always but that was wrong Mhesh. First of all that's how easily you cause an accident. Secondly, if it was urgent you would have left early.

Even doctors rushing to perform an emergency CS operation don't behave like that," an Instagram user identified as Kwamboka wrote softly reprimanding the politician.

Responding to this Karen simply wrote;

"Ni kuzoea matatu culture matatu culture pale Eastlando (blame that on me being used to the PSV culture from Eastlands,)"

She went on to add that she was in no way intoxicated with her status and power.

"Sidhani hapo kunakuwanga na power yoyote, (I don't think over there/in that situation there is usually any power,)" the mother of 3 noted.

Responding to another user who called her "mannerless and ignorant for not thinking before acting," Karen threw shade at the netizen reminding them that that they were not of the same calibre.

"I will not learn anything from someone below me," the nominated senator wrote, adding several emojis to the her comment.

Despite the obvious danger that Nyamu's driver posed to other road users, she boldly stated that if he was going to break the law, he should do it with confidence.

"ukiiba Lazima Uibe Na Confidence.", she teased showing no regard for the safety of others as she went on to record the video showing her breaking road rules.

The nearby traffic officer seemed to watch passively as Nyamu's vehicle flouted the rules of the road. The senator suggested that he must have realized she was running late for parliamentary duties.
