Sen. Karen Nyamu, nominated, has expressed her desire for a polygamous relationship with musician Samidoh. She is confident that Edday Nderitu, married to Samidoh, will return and consent to sharing her husband.
Nyamu, a mother of three, said her top priorities include ensuring that everyone involved ultimately gains from the arrangement and that the kids have a present and attentive dad.
She acknowledged the continuous discussion about her predicament that has drawn attention from the general public. Still, she highlighted that problems of the heart are not things that can be managed or controlled.
"It's not like that. Matters of the heart cannot be planned. I have tried so many times, and you have seen. I tried leaving but failed. What will I do, and there are kids involved? My prayer is that things work out, but I have not lost hope," Nyamu stated.

She continued by highlighting the legitimacy of polygamy in Kenya and pointing out that it attempts to give every child a father and every woman a spouse.
Huyo akitoka na mimi kuingia is not the issue. Apana. It's not an easy situation, Sio rahisi," she said.
Nyamu emphasized that the situation is complex and emotionally charged, calling attention to the fact that it is more complicated than one person leaving and another entering the partnership.
"It's not easy. It's a sensitive situation, and maybe I did not handle it well. There are arguments even for other couples, but ours became public. It is because it is being handled in private, but ours was splashed to the public," Nyamu explained.
Nyamu emphasized the need for the correct intentions and a sincere heart, expressing her everlasting conviction that the polygamous marriage will eventually succeed despite the difficulties.
"I believe it will work, even if it takes a year. In an open conversation with Radio 47, she concluded: "Because the heart and intention are in the right place.
Edday, Samidoh's wife, had already said she was not prepared to raise her kids in a polygamous marriage.
