Speaker warns Gideon Moi & Millicent Omanga over “kukumanga” talk in Parliament

Embarrassing moment for the two senators


Kindiki called Senators Gideon Moi (Baringo) and Millicent Omanga (nominated) to order after they were heard consulting in loud tones with Bomet Senator Christopher Lang’at.

However, Senator Moi rose to protest, saying he heard the Speaker utter the word “Senator Kukumanga”.

“I was speaking to Senator Omanga and Senator Lang’at and we are quite sure that we heard you say Senator Kukumanga, could you please clarify,” Moi said.

His comments were supported by Senator Omanga.

“My Speaker, being a Seventh Day Adventist and head of Dorcas, the women union in SDA, it is good you clarify because my congregation is watching,” Omanga said.

Before the speaker could respond, Minority Leader James Orengo rose to defend the speaker and accused of Moi and Omanga of inappropriate talk that may have led them to hear the word kukumanga.

“I heard Mr Speaker what you said and what Senator Murkomen said. How that word turned to kukumanga worries me because I don’t know what Senator Moi and Senator Omanga were talking about. I am worried that word may have come from their conversation,” Orengo remarked.

His point was also supported by Bungoma Senator Moses Wetangula – much to the excitement of the House.

The speaker later warned Senator Moi, Omanga, and Lang’at for engaging in inappropriate talk in Parliament.

Kukumanga or pomegranate in English, is a fruit associated with boosting female sexual libido.
