Nyasuguta was a darling to all Vitimbi TV show lovers across the country before she quit her acting career in search of a political seat. Eunice Wambui who is the actress known to Kenyans as Nyasuguta for her role in Vitimbi, has started campaigning for the post of a member of parliament for Embakasi South.
As it is, Politics is a dirty game. On Fridays 4th, Eunice Wamboi was attacked by four goons, when she had gone to see a group of women in Mukuru Kwa Ruben.
“THREE MEN ATTACKED ME AS ONE OF THEM KEPT WATCH. THEY PUNCHED MY FACE AND HIT ME WITH A WOODEN ROD ON MY NECK AND BACK. I KEPT TELLING THEM, TAKE THE MONEY I HAD BUT THEY DID NOT STEAL ANYTHING FROM ME. ONE OF THEM EVEN TOLD ME, ‘HATUNA NJAA YA PESA.’ THEY LATER TOLD ME THAT ‘EMBAKASI IKO NA WENYEWE’,” NYASUGUTA TOLD THE STAR’S WORD IS.
Eunice Wambui aka Nyasuguta, was nursing bruises all over her body, she was bleeding from her ears and had breathing problems because of being hit on her chest. she has gone to hospital thrice, for regular check-ups so that the doctors can ascertain that she doesn’t have internal bleeding.
Nyasuguta says that she has been receiving threats from unknown people whom she suspects are affiliated to her political opponents telling her that one day they will undress her if he continues to pursue the Embakasi South MP seat.
“AT FIRST I WAS SO SCARED AND I EVEN WANTED TO CALL IT QUITS, BUT MY SUPPORTERS IN EMBAKASI HAVE TOLD ME TO CONTINUE SOLDIERING ON. THEY HAVE MY BACK. THE SABOTAGE HAS GOTTEN SO BAD TO THE POINT WHERE I FIND MY CAR HAD BEEN VANDALISED WHEN I WOULD GO TO CHECK ON THE VARIOUS PROJECTS I’M WORKING ON AT THE CONSTITUENCIES. NOWADAYS I JUST USE A TAXI.”
“I HAVE LEARNT THAT SECURITY IS IMPORTANT. ALWAYS WALK IN A GROUP. WHEN SOMEONE CALLS YOU AT NIGHT FOR A MEETING, DON’T GO, IT COULD BE A TRAP SET BY YOUR OPPONENTS. ALSO DON’T TRUST ANYONE BECAUSE THE PEOPLE YOU KNOW ARE THE ONES USED TO LURE YOU INTO A TRAP,” NYASUGUTA SAID.
This brutal attack, under handed attack has not dimmed her light yet. In fact it has given her even more resolve to go out there and campaign harder, stronger and smarter. She advised other female political aspirants to adhere to the following rules this campaign period.
