Details of Millie Odhiambo's Zimbabwean Husband

  • Suba North Member of Parliament Millie Odhiambo is one of the most outspoken, no-nonsense female leaders in the Country.

    She does not shy off from calling out leaders that she feels are undermining women and children.

    Unknown to many, Millie is married to a Zimbabwean husband, Magugu Mabona, whom she met online.

    The two got married on February 14, 2006, in Kisumu on a ferry in Lake Victoria, a few metres from where her father died.

    Mabona is passionate about the Hotel and Catering management and professional image consultant for the lifestyle industry. 

    "I currently serve as a hotelier at Amak Images and I am responsible for strategic hotel operations to assure optimum performance," reads part of Mabona's LinkedIn profile.

    In an October 2010 interview with The Standard, Millie stated that her husband was not intimidated by her success.

    "He is not threatened by my ‘high flying’ life so to speak, but when he is around he wants some quality time," she stated.

    During an interview on Citizen TV in July 2019, the legislator narrated that she was swept off her feet by Magugu's simple act of carrying a Bible the first time they met.

    “Sometimes you win strong people's hearts with the simplest of things. When I saw him, he was carrying a Bible. That, for me, is greater than anything.

    “I know it is not the most romantic of things. However, he was good looking too and it is rare to see a good looking man carrying a Bible,” she narrated.

    The vocal legislator further revealed that being a staunch Christian is one aspect of her life that drives her forward.
