Millie Odhiambo had a really engaging and an eye-opening interview when she was hosted on Radio Jambo by Annitah Raey.
The Mbita MP opened up about many things in her life including her upbringing, her school life, political career as well as her marriage life.
Married to one Mr. Mabona, a Zimbabwean and a father of one daughter, Millie revealed that despite her not being able to bear her own children she is still a happy woman.
She believes that God indeed intended her to be in parliament without a child of her own so that she can be a voice of the childless women, after seeing what many women go through just because they can’t bear children.
“I am married to Mr. Mabona, who is originally Zimbabwean. He says he is a citizen of the world because his family is all over the world.” She says.
He got a daughter when he was in high school and his daughter lives in Botswana, we have a good relation with her. Part of my husband’s family is in the UK, USA, South Africa and very few in Zimbabwe now.
I don’t have a child of my own. A lot of people think it is a problem, It’s not a problem I think it is a blessing. As a christian I think everything that happens in my life is purposed by God and am not saying it in a woiye sort of way.
She added, I have seen that God intended me to be in parliament without a child so that I can be a voice for the childless women, because I have seen what women go through.
For example I saw a woman whose hand was chopped off because she can’t have a child. I am very happy that God gave me the privilege of being a woman without a child.
