Politicians Babu Owino and Millicent Omanga have joined the “handshake” bandwagon.
In the spirit of reconciliation as envisioned by President Uhuru and Opposition chief Raila Odinga, the two adversaries came together over the weekend to award bursaries to needy students.
Babu Owino, who once claimed that Omanga only got her nomination to Senate by using her waist, referred to the lawmaker as a sister as he thanked various leaders who showed up for the event at Jacaranda grounds.
“I would love to take this opportunity to appreciate my sister Hon.Millicent Omanga, Lower Savanah Ward MCA Hon Nicholas Okumu and thousands of patriots who showed up at Jacaranda grounds to help me award bursaries to our sisters and brothers in various secondary schools, tertiary institutions, and universities today.
Like I promised during the aforementioned function, I will ensure that all those who applied and qualified for bursaries get awarded. God bless Kenya.”
In February this year, the two leaders ripped each other apart on social media after the senator told the MP to respect Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i.
Omanga called Babu a small boy and stated that she would circumcise the vocal MP.
“Does BABU OWINO or is it BABO OGWANG’ think that his (he is) the only person with the monopoly of insults. Someone tell him the leaders he insults are the age of his father and mother. If the government is not able to deal with him, personally I am very ready to circumcise him and maybe that will instill some respect manners in him. RESPECT MATIANG’I you small boy,” said Omanga.
In response, Babu claimed Omanga had climbed up the ladder by sleeping around. He also shared a photo of a hippo wearing a bikini and named it “Millipedes Omanga”.
A few days ago, the two put on display a united front for the benefit of over 4000 needy students.
Omanga posted on Facebook: “As policy makers we should invest more in education. Let us think of education as the means of developing our greatest abilities and collectively it can of big benefit to our society and help in building a greater nation.”
