Nominated Senator Millicent Omanga has disclosed that she did not expect to be grilled by the Jubilee Disciplinary Committee as she had already explained herself to the party’s Chief Whip Murang’ a Senator Irung’u Kang’ata.
The Senator pointed out that the Chief Whip had told her that she had been summoned so that they can withdraw the charges. She added that maybe there was a miscommunication.
“Maybe there was a miscommunication, but when I explained to the Chief Whip Murang’ a Senator Irung’u Kang’ata my position, he had told me that we were coming here to withdraw the charges,” she explained.
The lawmaker who almost got expelled from the party maintained that she was surprised that she was grilled. She however, found comfort in that she would get time to further explain and clarify herself because there were a lot of misconceptions.
Explaining to the party Disciplinary Committee why she missed the Jubilee’s Party Senate Parliamentary Group meeting about two weeks ago at the State House, the legislator claimed that she did not receive any message.
“I did not get the message and only learned it later from the Chief Whip. As a politician, you understand that that you get a lot of messages. Right now I have 7,000 messages and I have tried searching for that invite message and I have not been able to find it. I did not have the avenue to send an apology because I had no message,” she defended herself.
While defending her remarks on social media where people thought she was hitting back at the Jubilee party leadership, the Senator claimed that she was defending the party against perpetrators.
“I was defending our party against perpetrators; that is the people who do not support our party. They are all over social media. I was just responding to media and social media. It was a social media thing,” she explained herself.
