A fan shared the photo under Samidoh’s Wife Edday’s Facebookpost, claiming Nyamu has been assaulted.

Edday Nderitu decided to responded to the fan saying,

“hizo huwa kama prescription.”

In response, Karen Nyamu called out those who use gender based violence as a way to make jokes and circulate rumours.

“So watu wanamake fun of gender based violence especially watu wale hawanilike, they think that gender-based violence is something you can use to settle scores or something you should wish on your enemies and these are women. We can’t be this ignorant in this day and age. Gender-based violence is a serious issue.” she said.

She continued by saying that while she had previously suffered gender-based abuse, it wasn’t happening right now.

“I personally have been a victim in the past and I’m not one to keep quiet about such a thing ama kuficha. I have raised it with the person who could have been the person who people think has hit me, he insisted I should disregard rumors.”she added.
