Safaricom CEO’s newly wedded wife, Wambui Kamiru, has finally responded to her critics in a letter addressed to her children.
In a Facebook post titled A Letter To My Children, she sought to clear the air about her relationship with Bob.
“My marriage to the man that I love and respect had some interesting effects on the conversations on Twitter and Facebook (these may be obsolete by the time you are reading this). However, for a few days there, lots of Kenyans talked about “tribalism” and some admitted their desire to leave and go to another country because of how unbearable it can sometimes be to live in a society where people first judge you by your “tribal” origin. A lot of people refused to be part of the conversation, arguing that it should no longer matter. These people are the reason why we will still have a country to call home,” read part of her message.
The couple tied the knot in an invite-only affair held at a private residence in Kitisuru, with only family and close friends in attendance.
Wambui is the founder of The Art Space, an independent commercial art gallery situated on Riverside Drive, Nairobi, according to her website.
