One thing Kenya can boast about 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 seem controversial or too hot to tackle.
Omanga, who unsuccessfully vied for Nairobi county’s woman representative seat, is married to one Dr. Francis Nyamiobo and together they have two children.
At one time, she viciously attacked people who poked fun at her shape after she claimed her behind was too big for economy class seats. She also went ahead to state that she is happy and proud of her physique.
She spoke during a recent interview where she covered topics including her upbringing, political career and marriage life.
She was asked about the same topic and she categorically stated that she is proud of what she inherited from her mother and that she was not looking forward to shedding 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!,” she said.
“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?”
Omanga met her husband back in university and the two have been married 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,” she said.
“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.”
