Electing A Woman DP Will Make The Office Lack Meaning Like It Was During The Jubilee Govt - Sen Omanga

Senatorial candidate Millicent Omanga has rejected the choice of a female running mate. This occurred as a result of the Azimio alliance's selection of Martha Karua as Raila's running mate, a decision that appears to have upset Kenya Kwanza. Omanga appeared as a guest on a late-night radio program broadcast by Station Citizen.


She argued that adding a woman to the position of vice president in Kenya would render the office meaningless, just as the Jubilee government has rendered the position of vice president obsolete.

During the second term of the Jubilee administration, the majority of the vice president's functions were transferred to other Cabinet members, leaving the vice president's position redundant.

According to reports, Matiangi took the majority of the deputy's duties.

While in office, the president accused his vice president of extreme partisanship.

Raila remarked, however, that Martha Karua's responsibilities were well-defined and that collaboration would not be a problem.

Omanga is running for the position of female representative of Nairobi.
