The Uasin Gishu Women Representative was compelled to respond to images doing rounds on social media.
The photos indicated that she was in the company of a white man in an unknown location enjoying themselves.
Contrary to what most expected from the press briefing, Gladys Boss Shollei did not confirm whether the man in the pictures was her new partner.
Instead, she indicated that the images did not show any improper conduct.
This is not the first hurdle in my life. Luckily I learnt to walk on fire by avoiding looking at the fire.
She revealed that her day was, otherwise, full of activities related to her role as a legislature.
She spent the day attending to residents in different parts of her county.
She reiterated her commitment to service delivery regardless of such distracting sideshows.
Going forward, I will continue to serve my God, protect and raise my children, and work for the people of Uasin Gishu County.
Here is the full video of her response during the press briefing.
