Senator Millicent Omanga Reportedly Complains Economy Class Seats are Small for her

August 27, 2018

Nominated Senator Millicent Omanga has written to the Parliamentary Service Commission seeking permission to fly Business Class, claiming she cannot fit in the standard aircraft seats in the Economy Section, the Sunday Standard reports.

According to reports, the matter was discussed at the PSC meeting on July 14 and subsequently rejected.

Insiders argued that accepting the frivolous request would have opened an avenue for all MPs to demand preferential treatment on non-issues.

“It is true the Senator wrote a letter which the commission rejected on the grounds that we cannot give everyone who is well-endowed special treatment. This will give other MPs with different challenges to put demands on us,” an unnamed senior official at the commission was quoted as saying.

Senate Clerk Jeremiah Nyegenye could not confirm or deny the matter: “It would not be in order to discuss details between the commission and the members with a third party or give documents.”

Officials reportedly indicated that they were taken aback with the unusual request but admitted that the senator was within her rights to make the request.

Omanga has, however, denied writing the letter stating she was not aware of anything pertaining to it.

“I am not aware of what you are talking about,” she said.

She further took to social media to blast the Standard newspaper for “poor journalistic practices where readers are inundated with sensationalized stories.”
