Babu Owino's wife, Fridah Muthoni, has revealed intricate details of why she has stayed by the legislator's side despite various controversies in the recent past.
During a YouTube show dubbed DMS Media, Babu Owino got the chance to interview his wife on various topics ranging from her past life, education and future plans. Muthoni narrated that the legislator was misinterpreted by Kenyans claiming that is depicted on social media is not a true reflection of his nature.
She further detailed that Babu Owino's upbringing played a vital role in shaping his character and perceived hardcore nature.
"You are a good man, you have a heart of gold and I was able to see that somehow. There's also the fact that I understood your background, how many of us can make it out of a slum?
"You're bound to pick up some things along the way that might shape a bit of who you are, though it might not change who you are at heart but outwardly, it may reflect other things that really are just a result of someone's upbringing but not a reflection of their true nature," she stated.
She also listed some of the philanthropic gestures done by the legislator, noting that they had weathered the storm in order to stay through the course of a 12-year-marriage.
Highlighting her background, Muthoni noted that she left formal employment (previously worked at a local bank) to venture into into business before launching her clothing line, FNM brand.
She added that her desire to expand her business and inspiration from her husband, led her to return to school to major in fashion and design. Her desire is for her brand to go global and other countries to import goods from the company.
Muthoni also excelled in her studies, scoring 443 marks in her KCPE at Lions school and an A- in KCSE at Loreto High School.
She joined the University of Nairobi where she pursued a bachelor's degree in economics as well as Certified Public Accountants (CPA) course. Upon graduation, she began working as an intern before joining the the banking industry. Years later, she left employment to pursue her passion for fashion and art.
