Meet PS Lillian Omollo’s husband who is a close family friend to the Kenyattas

Highly connected family

Unknown to most Kenyans, Ms Omollo is married to a close family friend of the Kenyattas and her swift arrest perhaps is an indication of President Uhuru Kenyatta’s commitment to fighting graft.

The PS, however, continues to use the surname Omollo from a previous marriage.

Her husband, Dick Oruko Oneko, is the son to independence hero Achieng' Aneko.

Aneko served alongside Mzee Jomo Kenyatta in Kapenguria and although the two leaders would part ways politically in 1966, the friendship between their families has continued over the years.

Dick was one of the prominent professionals from Nyanza who actively campaigned for President Uhuru is last year’s presidential campaign.

A look by Pulselive.co.ke into Dick’s Facebook profile cast an image of an ardent defender of the Jubilee administration who is always sharing positive stories about the President.

Incidentally, Dick’s elder brother DrOng’ong’a Achieng became one of the high-ranking officials to serve a jail term after a Nairobi court found him guilty and jailed him for three years over corruption.

Ong’ong’a stayed two months at the Industrial Area Prison before being freed after winning an appeal.
