Senator Millicent OManga Earns Herself A New Sheng Nickname And She Is Curious To Know It's Meaning

Senator Millicent Omanga is a notable nominated senator who subscribes to the Tangatanga political faction affiliated to Deputy President William Samoe Arap Ruto. She is famously known as Mama Miradi for her various economic initiatives and/or projects that aims to improve the economic status of small scale business people in Kenya.

Senator Millicent Omanga has earned herself a new nickname that enhances the usual Mama Miradi. The nickname is in Sheng and Senator Omanga is curious to know what the name really means. She hit on her Facebook page in a bid to solicit the meaning of the name from her followers and/or fans. She said, "Nairobi people speak difficult Sheng. Someone has just texted me, saying 'wewe ni pedi wa empowerments' what does 'pedi wa empowerments' mean please?"

In short, Senator Omanga was seeking to know the meaning of the new nickname Nairobi people are now using to refer to her in Sheng. One Antony Karanja offered to tell her the true meaning of the new nickname. He said 'pedi wa empowerments' simply means a peddler or hawker of empowerments. Karanja further expounded by saying it means Senator Millicent Omanga is going virtually allover the country rolling out development projects that are geared towards empowering the poor.

What is your take on this? Do you think Karanja's explanation of the name pedi wa empowerments is correct? Share your thoughts with us in the comments section.
