Millicent Omanga

Nominated senator Millicent Omanga

Embattled nominated senator Millicent Omanga is on the verge of losing her senatorial seat following expulsions proceedings by the Jubilee Party.

Omanga was among the nominated senators including Isaac Mwaura, Mary Yiane, Waqo Naomi Jilo, Prengei Victor and Iman Falhada Dekow who were expelled by the party. 

The tribunal upheld the decision by the Jubilee party's national management committee after deliberating on the reports by the party's disciplinary committee saying they were in order to dismiss them.

The Jubilee Party Vice Chair David Murathe had initially sounded a warning to errant party members affirming that their disloyalty would cost them.

In March while honouring a summon by the National Cohesion and Integration Commission (NCIC), Senator Omanga caused drama at the offices after being kept waiting for too long.

The Senator was seen storming the NCIC boardroom before unleashing a tirade at the NCIC officer. The senator demanded to know why she had been kept waiting for more than an hour.

Omanga was among 10 politicians who had been summoned by NCIC for allegedly fueling political violence in the recent Matungu and Kabuchai by-elections.

Away from politics, Omanga started the Mama Miradi project to support poor communities.

She also has an entrepreneurial bone disclosing that she made her first million at the age of 19 as a student at the University of Nairobi.

Omanga said she ventured into a side hustle of selling bedsheets that eventually blossomed into a profitable business dubbed Milways Enterprises.
