A photo of newly-nominated senator Karen Nyamu showing off her basketball skills before a game with other senators in South Sudan has dazzled admirers online. The mother of three was seen taking a jump shot while her colleagues lined up behind her and prepared for their turn.
The fact that she is able to remain active and flexible despite having given birth to her third kid, who she shares with musician Samidoh, early this year, however, truly shocked many.
Despite the social conventions that the majority of people adhere to, she has always surprised people with how hard she pushes herself.
In the caption of the photo, Karen encourages herself to “score by any means necessary”, which seems to be an attitude that she uses generally in life at whatever she puts her mind to.
Nyamu was in South Sudan for the East African Community Parliamentary games
