Millicent Omanga: I will be a nominated senator
City politician Millicent Omanga says she will be nominated to the Senate by the Jubilee Party after the August 8 elections.
Omanga, who was defeated by Nairobi Woman representative Rachael Shebesh in the party primaries, has been appealing to her supporters to back Jubilee in the August elections.
This is after she protested Shebesh’s win and appealed through the Jubilee party tribunal and lost again.
Omanga had claimed to have had indisputable video evidence of Shebesh rigging the nominations and when the tribunal ruled in the incumbent’s favour she sought advice from her Facebook fans.
She asked for recommendations on the way forward and some users advised her to quit the party saying her ‘rigging’ out was tribal.
Omanga has however chosen to stay in the party as her recent posts are aimed at proving to her fans that Jubilee is still the party to vote for.
She has been holding meetings with other aspirants and when her name appeared in the Mike Sonko shortlist of nine prospective running mates her fans expressed hope.
Sonko has since chosen former Vivo Energy CEO Polycarp Igathe as his running mate a move that angered some of Omanga’s supporters.
