Suba North MP Millie Odhiambo is pretty outspoken about issues.
That is something she is well aware of, and won’t stop anytime soon.
This side of her sadly has seen her land the wrath of online trolls.
In an interview on NTV, Millie spoke out about being trolled and the one thing that hurts her greatly.
When I disagree with people even on Facebook, some people come and insult me and tell me that is why GOD has not blessed you with children, that is why you are barren like it is a big deal not to have children
Another female politician who has spoken out about not being able to conceive was former coast politician Joyce Lay.
The former Taita Taveta MP opened up about her painful journey to motherhood saying
During a debate on the In-Vitro Fertilization Bill, Ms Lay gave an emotional speech on the frustrations she went through when she had to use a surrogate mother to give birth to her only child.
“I wasn’t born barren. I was a young mother at the age of nineteen. I have been through the pain of giving birth; it is only that I lost my son when he was two years old. This time, it is only that I had to be assisted so that I can get another child,” she said.
KOT have responded to Millie’s confession, urging her to take heart
