One thing Kenya boasts is a whole lot of fearless and outspoken women leaders, one of them being Millicent Omanga.
The nominated Senator never shies away from diving into topics that many deem controversial or too hot to step on – look where that has landed her.
Omanga, paid presenter, Massawe Japanni, a visit on Wednesday afternoon where she talked about various topics including; Her upbringing, political career and marriage life.
Omanga who unsuccessfully vied for Nairobi county’s women representative seat, is married to one Dr. Francis Nyamiobo and together have two children.
At one time, she viciously attacked people who poked fun at her shape claiming that her behind was too big for economy class seats. She also went ahead to state that she is happy and proud of her physique.
Her post read; I am proud of myself and my physique.
She was asked about the same topic on air and she categorically stated that she is proud of what she inherited from her mother and that she was not looking forward to shed any weight. Why? Her loving husband loves her just the way she is and if she dares lose weight, she might end up losing the love of her life.
Oh yes! I love what my mama gave me and I am unapologetic about it. You know they say I need to lose weight or do that, I don’t!
I want to add more because my husband loves it and if I lose then he will leave me and where will I get another one? She said.
Omanga met her husband back in university and the two have been in marriage for more than 10 years. But how does she balance politics and family life?
I thank God that I am lucky enough to have an understanding husband.
He is not in politics but I am his reflection, since all I do out there he is the one who does the panel beating. I am what I am because of him and I have managed to succeed because of him. Added Omanga.
