Nominated Senator Millicent Omanga speaks on why she doesn’t wear make-up

Published

on

Nominated Senator Millicent Omanga has revealed that she does not wear makeup like many other female politicians and celebrities who rely on the products to enhance their looks.

Reason? They are too expensive.

In an interview with Radio Jambo on Wednesday, the curvaceous legislator, who takes home a basic salary of Sh710,000 every month, said she finds make-up products to be a costly venture.

VERY EXPENSIVE

“I don’t apply make-up because I am beautiful beside it’s very expensive. I would rather buy a mattress and take it to Majengo (slums), rather than buy the expensive makeup,” Omanga stated.

The Senator went on to clarify claims that her life changed when, in 2013, Deputy President William Ruto met and appointed her a director of the Kenya Electricity Generating Company (KenGen) at a time she was trying to make ends meet in Nairobi by selling bed sheets.

“It wasn’t bed sheets only but you understand the social media. I have been doing business for long until now. I am an interior design by passion and I have over 20 stores in different parts of the country selling interior household and office items including furniture,” Omanga clarified.

STRANGE: Kenyan man in US says women reject him because he is a perfectionist, great cook

Published

on

A Kenyan man in Boston, Massachusetts in the US cannot find a wife because he is a great cook. Albert Kiage is not your average ‘hustler’. He has everything going for him. He has a good job, a string of real estate properties in the United States and Kenya and drives top-of-the-range SUVs.

His house is furnished with all the fancy electronic gadgets anyone would wish for in life. What’s more, Kiage’s says he has a balance worth writing home about in his bank account. What Kiage, however, lacks is a wife.

Not that he has not tried getting one. He is divorced once and has watched three women leave him because he is not only too clean, but also a great cook and a perfectionist to boot.

“I think I am an incurable germophobe, with an OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder) that drives women away. I had constant wrangles with my first wife over small matters of hygiene and we divorced in 2007 after two years of marriage. I couldn’t stand her. I found her too dirty for my house. We just couldn’t cope,” complains Kiage.

Biggest problem

He says he has dated three women since then. In all the cases, he says, the relationships were serious and he hoped they would lead to marriage.

Unfortunately, that was not to be. “The problem has always been the same. The first one always complained that I am a perfectionist. The two other cases were almost similar, with one complaining about my insistence to cook all the time. Truth of the matter is she was a joke in the kitchen,” says the accountant.

His biggest problem with most women stems from the fact that he is an incredible cook. Having lived his entire adult life single, save for the short-lived marriage, he has perfected his cooking skills and can’t stand bad food.

“You can only eat out for so long,” he says. “As a gym enthusiast, you want natural foods which you cannot find readily when you eat out. I am also very keen with my diet, it has to be balanced,” he says.

Living alone has taught him many things, culinary-wise. He can whip up every discernible Kenyan meal, including chapatis. “In fact some Kenyan female friends even come for chapatis, cake and barbecues at my home over the weekends. They know I am good at it. We always laugh over my obsession for cooking and cleanliness, but it’s never that serious,” he says. This, however, comes at a cost. It has continuously kept potential wives away.

House wife

They come, settle, try to keep up with his standards, but many cannot. Partly because life is too busy in the United States for anyone to depend on homemade food every day of the week, and partly because Kiage must eat at home. He is able to do it. He doesn’t see why he should relent. Not that he chases them away. They just chicken out.

“They become increasingly uncomfortable, since I insist on cooking for both of us. I don’t mind at all. But many say, it is un-African,” he says. He says many women in America, whereas they are busy and crave independence, they still want a chance to play the role of a traditional house wife. And many are not ready to compete with him in roles that were traditionally considered to belong to women.

Kiage says his culinary skills must have been nurtured when he was young, when he was growing up with his father in Eldoret.

“I lived with my father and I used to do everything on my own. So I learned everything and became quite independent. Living as a bachelor only made me perfect the skills,” he says. He says he is praying and hoping to find a fellow perfectionist to settle down with.

Fourth woman in Kori love life emerges, says they have a son

Published

on

The last time they talked, Joseph Kori Karue told her that he did not have food to feed himself, let alone pay her son’s school fees.

This is the tale of Grace Wangari, the latest woman in Kori’s complicated love life.He asked her to be patient as he hustled for means, and she accepted like she had always done.

She believed him.It was not the first time he was saying that he did not have money anyway. He had no job so it was understandable why he was broke.

He had just moved from Kayole in Nairobi to Nakuru to try his luck in business. She was to join him once the business began to thrive.

That is how the script was supposed to go until he blocked her calls and disappeared, leaving her with a child and a Nokia 6805 flap phone as memories.

That was in 2012. She still has a picture of them together taken in Eldoret just before he went silent.He had made some money from his business and called her to visit him with his son.

In the photo, he his holding her from the back like a lover would as two bottles of Guinness and Fanta stand on the table before them.

It was the last time they were together. The next time Grace would see Joseph Kori Karue was in the dock three weeks ago following the murder of his wife Mary Wambui.

“It was Kenyatta Day when he first walked into the restaurant. He was cool, smartly dressed and minding his own business,” she recalls.

“I don’t know how it happened but I just found myself serving his table and this became a habit,” she says.In Kori, she got her first boyfriend.

A year later, this love produced a son. They never moved in together but she says they loved each other. But unknown to her, Kori had a wife he never revealed who he lived in Kayole.
