Women rep aspirant changes tact with latest donation of metal boxes

Nairobi woman representative aspirant Millicent Omanga seems to have gotten her act together after being criticised online for donating metal boxes to needy students bearing her name.

Ms Omanga, who last week gave boxes to children in Embakasi Ward, on Tuesday made yet another donation through her campaign team but this time the boxes were not branded with her name.

Online users were quick to notice the change of tactic congratulating her for taking heed of the criticism.

Ms Omanga’s last week donation of labeled boxes led to outrage as users stated that the labelling would lead to the needy student’s being mocked in their new schools.

Zablon Theuri who had been on the forefront castigating Ms Omanga last week said of the new donation: “Thanks, you took my advise and now you are giving the boxes without the elaborate words showing they are a donation. Their parents/guardians shall definitely reciprocate by giving you their votes.”

Zack Njoka commented: “Thank you for listening to your loyal supporters. Positive criticism is the way to go.”

Nzioki Wa Kaloki noted, “This time round you didn’t brand them with your name… congrats.”

Ms Omanga is seeking a Jubilee Party ticket to vie for the Nairobi woman representative parliamentary seat in the August elections.

She will be battling it out with the incumbent Rachel Shebesh, lawyer Karen Nyamu, Nairobi county assembly nominated MCA Wangui B Ng’ang’a among others.
