Vitimbi actress Eunice Wambui aka Nyasuguta is joining politics.

Speaking to Heads Up, she revealed she will be running for MP Embakasi South constituency.

She claims that so far she has been embraced by the youth and women.

But she revealed that some of her fans believe she is joking and has been forced to do a lot of campaigning.  

“Some of them still can’t differentiate my character from TV to the politician that I plan to become. On the other hand, most of them have embraced me for my simplicity and they know I’m the type of person who will understand them and represent them well in Parliament,” Nyasuguta told Heads Up.

Late last year, the actress hit the headlines after she bleached her face.

She revealed that a road accident had left parts of her face terribly damaged.

The accident, she noted, affected her facial skin pigmentation forcing her to find medical ways to fix the condition.
