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 said she has been hustling for as long as she can remember.
Adding that the need to hustle was motivated by her mother’s struggles after her dad died.
Omanga revealed, “My dad passed away while we were in school, we were eight kids and my mum was struggling to pay for the fees. That is why I chose to be independent.”
As such, she is always looking for ways to be financially independent.
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 I WAS IN CAMPUS, I WOULD USE MY UPKEEP CASH TO GO TO DUBAI AND BUY STOCK AND RESELL.
BY THE TIME I FINISHED UNIVERSITY I WAS A FULLY FLEDGED BUSINESS WOMAN. I WOULD EVEN GET ORDERS FROM THE HOSPITALITY INDUSTRY.
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. I WAS SO HAPPY. I AM STRICT WHEN NEED BE AND EASY WHEN THEY BEHAVE.
Omanga 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. NOW, I HAVE DEVELOPED A TOUGH SKIN. MY CONSCIENCE IS CLEAR. SO I HAVE NOTHING TO BE WORRIED ABOUT.
MY WORRY WAS THAT AT THE TIME MY KIDS WOULD SEE SUCH STUFF.I T WOULD REALLY AFFECT THEM BUT PERSONALLY, I FEEL NOTHING ABOUT NEGATIVE CRITICS.
Here are photos of Omanga’s house as seen during an interview with Betty Kyallo on ‘Upclose With Betty’.
