Millicent Omanga Only Bought Potatoes Worth Ksh350- Bevalyne Kwamboka


Senator Omanga had tweeted on Monday, October 4 that her team visited Kwamboka’s now-viral business venture and had provided her with stock, cash and other material to keep it going.

UPDATE 16.06: Nominated Senator Millicent Omanga has responded to Nairobi chips mwitu vendor Bevalyne Kwamboka who earlier accused her of lying to Kenyans that she gave her cash to support her business.

Omanga took to Twitter, suggesting that Kwamboka had high expectations that she did not meet.

“My team visited her & brought back a positive report. I made a tweet to that effect to which Kwamboka acknowledged. I’m thus disturbed to learn that she has complained and rubbished the support she got through my office.

“I did my best under the circumstances and I’m sorry that I didn’t meet her expectations which appear to have been higher. In such situations the truth, honesty & facts are sacrificed at the altar of social media fame, blackmail & character assassination,” the Senator wrote.

Omanga then wished Kwamboka success & good fortunes as she grows her business.

Kenyan tweep Bevalyne Kwamboka, who runs a chips mwitu business in Nairobi has accused nominated Senator Millicent Omanga of lying to her fellow citizens that she gave her some cash to support her lucrative business.

Senator Omanga had tweeted on Monday, October 4 that her team visited Kwamboka’s now-viral business venture and had provided her with stock, cash and other material to keep it going.

“Bevalyne Kwamboka is now sorted. Umbrella, cash and stock to boost her hustle.

Mvua au jua haitamharibia biashara tena (the rain or sunlight will not ruin her business). Now let’s go eat those chips,” Senator Omanga posted.

The tweet also featured photos taken during that day of Kwamboka with three sacks of potatoes, a number of umbrellas and two aprons to create the idea that they were donations from the Senator.

Her actions were followed with resounding praise from Kenyans but the fickle ones had criticised her for donating to Kwamboka instead of catering for her school fees.

However, on Thursday, October 7, Kwamboka changed the tide on Omanga’s statement, roasting her in a statement of her own for lying to Kenyans that she gave the chips mwitu vendor cash.

“For clarification, Millicent Omanga only bought potatoes worth Ksh350, came out of the vehicle with 5 umbrellas, took photos, returned them and gave out one and two aprons. Cash was not included and she only bought potatoes worth Ksh350.

“The big sacks you all saw in the photo are mine and I bought them with my own money when I started my day,” Kwamboka’s statement read. 

Thereafter, Kenyans turned their anger towards Omanga for misleading the public through her statement.

Kwamboka went viral on Thursday, September 30 advertising her chips vending business along the streets of Nairobi, but netizens went straight to criticise her dress code.

She took to social media to share photos of herself doing what she does best, peeling potatoes to make chips to feed the hungry residents in exchange for a decent income.

Instead of praising her hustle located at Kware Tassia, which is the first footbridge from Donholm, many Kenyans bashed her dress code terming it as inappropriate to run a business. To be specific, some of the photos that went viral showed her wearing her knee-high, green dress which many of them saw as too short for work.

However, Kenyans on Twitter (KOT) rallied in support of her business in a change of fortunes, and a section of them paid a visit to her chips vending business.

She has since been interviewed by radio presenter Mary Njambi Koikai alias Fyah Mummah Jahmby.
