Omanga denies quitting race, set to fight it out with Nyamu, Wangui and Shebesh for Jubilee ticket
The Womans representative Jubilee ticket looks set to be an enthralling battle as Omanga will lock horns with three other strong aspirants among them the incumbent Rachel Shebesh.
She has termed the reports doing rounds on social media of her stepping down as false rumours and propaganda.
“It is with the strongest terms that I condemn such irresponsible propaganda. I will not be afraid to say my unworthy opponents have sensed defeat,” she said in a statement.
She thanked her supporters for their continued support and promised not to let them down.
The battle for Nairobi Womans representative Jubilee ticket looks set to be an enthralling battle as Omanga will lock horns with three other strong aspirants among them the incumbent Rachel Shebesh.
Shebesh has recently repackaged herself and has been seen in strategic meetings and events alongside Nairobi Gubernatorial hopeful Peter Kenneth.
Shebesh, a former nominated MP, won the seat in 2013 with 626,287 votes, followed by Syvia Mingala who garnered 323,332 votes while Esther Passaris garnered 289,292 votes.
While Shebesh has sided with Kenneth, a new entrant into city politics Karen Nyamu has been seen at events with Senator Mike Sonko who is also eyeing the Nairobi Governor position.
The young Advocate of the High Court has hit the ground running and has been across the city and initiated numerous development projects most of which have targeted the youth.
Her vision is firmly set on the struggling masses of unemployed youths and her slogan is ‘Wakili wa ma-hustlers’ (lawyer for hustlers).
Nominated MCA Wangui Ng’ang’a has also thrown her hat in the ring and has projected herself as development oriented and the one to solve the existing issues affecting women.
Her sister, Alice Wambui Ng’ang’a is the MP for Thika Town Constituency.
She is on record saying that the time come for the change of guard pointing out that the current women representative has done nothing to empower women since her election.
