Senator Millicent Omanga in a recent interview with Betty Kyallo let Kenyans into her mansion and we must admit it is magnificent.
Speaking to Betty Kyallo, Omanga says she has been hustling for as long as she can remember.
Adding that the need to hustle was motivated by her mothers struggles to pay their school fees.
I am an interior designer.
I learnt the trade through passion and friends because I have studied B-Com at the University of Nairobi.
When in Campus I would use my upkeep cash to go to Dubai and buy stock and resell and make some profit enough to repay back the cash and sit for my exams.
By the time I finished university I was a fully fledged business woman.
I would get orders from the hospitality industry.
My dad had passed away while we were in school yet we were eight kids and my mum was struggling to pay for the fees.
That is why I chose to be independent.
Millicent goes on to add that despite having a busy schedule she always creates time for her kids.
I was in the Uk and came in the morning of mothers day and found balloons all over and I was so happy.
I am strict when need be and easy when they behave.
She adds that at some point she used to get bothered by trolls.
Initially I used to get hurt. I would cry till I could not cry anymore but I have now developed a tough skin.
My conscience is clear. so I have nothing to be worried about.
My worry at the time was only that my kids would see such stuff. It would really affect but personally I feel nothing about negative critics.
