Politician Karen Nyamu is set to welcome her third child in February. Nyamu who is vying for a Nairobi senatorial seat has been seeing campaigning while eight months pregnant.
In an interview with Mpasho, Nyamu said she prayed for the baby.
“I prayed about the baby when I got pregnant since I knew I would be in the race, I am grateful to God.”
She has had a smooth pregnancy.
“I have not had any issue with the pregnancy and the baby is safe. Even the things that seem impossible before men, through prayers, they turn out very positive.”
So how will she balance motherhood and politics?
“Maternity leave does not have to be a three months period. with my son, I traveled even after one week and he was okay. All I need is planning which is already done. I have a very strong team behind me.”
