Recently, Youth Affairs and Sports Cabinet Secretary (CS) Ababu Namwamba rubbished reports alleging that he is involved in a romantic relationship with local content creator Azziad Nasenya.
The suave and stylish CS says that the relationship between himself and Azziad is entirely of a professional nature and not a love affair as intimated by his political detractors.
“Azziad is not my girlfriend. I actually feel so bad and sorry for the poor girl,” he said.
“You know me, I have been in the trenches, and when you work in public spaces, you grow the skin of a crocodile, covered by hipo, covered by a skin of a buffalo. People who have not circulated in this space go through it.”
Ababu further said both he and Azziad were treated unfairly, saying they were innocent.
The 23-year-old content creator has been keeping a low profile and doing what she loves most after trolls descended on her.
A popular female celebrity penned a heartwarming post to Azziad, encouraging her to stay strong.
Responding to the celebrity’s post, the bubbly TikToker said:
“Thanks, mom . May God keep fighting my battles for me❤️.”
Reacting to Azziad’s comment, more fans sent her sweet messages, and one said:
“Keep the fire burning…Kenyans are just jealous …you brilliant girl.”
“Allah loves you. Keep soaring high.”
“You are a strong and focused lady of our generation. Never allow negativity to disturb your peace ❤️,” another said.
