Senator Omanga response to reports she asked to fly first class because of her big behind

"I am proud of my body"

In her response, however, Omanga did not deny writing the letter requesting special treatment.

The letter had formed the basis of an entire page story by the Sunday Standard that was widely circulated on social media.


The nominated Senator stated that she was proud of her body and asked journalists to instead concentrate on human interest stories.

“It would help to remind the newspaper, and anybody else who shares in their warped thinking, that I'm proud of myself and my physique and neither sexist headlines meant to egg readers into reading a convoluted story nor journalistic skulduggery will change it.”

“I remain unmoved by that nonsense but my advice to armchair journalists who have nothing to write is that there are so much to write out there, especially human interest stories, that only an idle mind would find time to peddle rumours and half-truths,” she said in a statement released through her Facebook page.
