I’m not Johnstone Muthama’s daughter, Nyambane’s wife says
They mostly assume that I am this unapproachable person, a snob. But nothing could be further from the truth.
Best thing about being a mother?
Everything; but the thing that I love most is the fact that my daughter looks exactly like me; she is a minnie me. We often like to dress alike; we have a matching pair of tops and tights.
Saddest day of your life?
The day I lost my younger brother back in high school. Before he died, we were six children and I am the second born.
One thing that will surprise most about you?
I am very spiritual and have a close relationship with God. He is my strength.
Tea. I love a cup of tea no matter the weather, time or day.
Dumbest thing I ever did?
The other day while driving, I was caught talking on the phone by a police who was in a car next to mine. When she asked me why I was driving and talking on the phone, I told her that I never expected to be caught by a police in a car (laughs) because they usually stood near the traffic lights!
Hardest decision you ever had to make?
Leaving my daughter at four months to work. At the time, I was teaching music at Premier Academy, and I was faced with the tough decision of how to balance work and being a mother. It was an 8am-5pm job.
Worst grade you ever got in an exam?
I got a D in Mathematics. In high school, my one and only love was music, I would even miss other classes so I could sneak into the music room and do music.
Best thing about being a wife?
The fact that you always have someone routing for you, your friend who always has your back.
Craziest thing you have ever heard about yourself?
That I am the daughter of Machakos Senator Johnstone Muthama.
Your most annoying habit?
I bite my nails, I have tried in the past to stop but I cannot help it.
Your best physical feature?
My eyes, they stand out. Growing up, I used to be told that I have bedroom eyes and back then I never understood what it all meant. I have grown to love my eyes.
