I made my first million at 19 - Senator Millicent Omanga

Milly wa ma-bedsheets...Kazi ni Kazi - Omanga

Senator Millicent Omanga

Nominated Senator Millicent Nyaboke Omanga disclosed that she made her first Million at 19 and managed to buy her first car at the age of 20.

Appearing on Jessy Junction, Omanga aka Mama Miradi, said that the money was as a result of supplying bedsheets to a hotel in Eldoret. At that time, she was still a student at The University of Nairobi.

“When I joined University, I started my business, I made my first million when I was 19 years old and by 20 I bought my new car. And even those I was with at the University could tell you Milly was a rich girl and not because I was being given money by my parents.

I would use the school, Kidogo, unaenda unanunua vitu, unauza and by the time exam inafika pesa yangu nitakuwa nimeiroll for three months imeleta profit na nimelipa school fees and I continued like that” said Senator Omanga.


The Jubilee Senator went on to explain that the one million was as a result of supplying bedsheets to a Hotel in Eldoret.

“…I was selling merchandise, including bed sheets…I’m one of the biggest suppliers of bedsheets in this county up to date…

“I supplied a hotel in Eldoret called Mariot…that had 60 rooms and my working capital was not that much, so I went to the bank and they only gave me 150K basing on my transactions... so I went and bought the bedsheets and supplied and that’s how I got my first million…I was paid cash” said Millicent Omanga.


Omanga also took to social media saying; “ Milly wa ma-bedsheets. Hapo ndio story yangu ilianzia na bado ndio hustle yangu mpaka wa leo and at 19 years I made my first million. Kazi ni Kazi na inawezekana watu wangu 🙏. #MamaMiradi
