By end of June 2021, on Tuesday the 29, Millicent Omanga’s Twitter account @MillicentOmanga hit 289, 189 followers.

She only follows 108 accounts and goes by the popular hashtag #MamaMiradi that has made her the most followed female leader in Kenya’s social scene.

On her Facebook page, she goes by the name Senator Millicent Omanga, and by the date of writing this article she had 818,946 people following the page. On Instagram, she has 115,000 followers.

The nominated Senator keeps her millions of fans entertained with short videos, explosive updates (even about her favourite Premier League team, Man-U), and a legion of her captivating pictures helping the community, in political rallies, at home and in social events.

Omanga has always shown a desire to serve the people of Nairobi County, the Capital City of Kenya as their Woman Representative, a position currently occupied by Esther Passaris.

Omanga was nominated to the Senate by the President Uhuru Kenyatta-led party, Jubilee, but she has in recent months shown total allegiance to Deputy President William Ruto who is leading the Hustler Movement and the UDA Party.

Omanga has led delegations of youthful men and women to the official residence of DP Ruto to be empowered in their different hustlers that include receiving wheelbarrows, carts, and printing machines including other resources.

In the coming 2022 general elections, Omanga’s fortunes might change as she becomes an elected leader in the national assembly or senate, or even a cabinet or principal secretary when the UDA Party enters State House.
