Boniface Mwangi Pens Apology to Millicent Omanga After Public Spat

Nominated Senator Millicent Omanga
  • Activist and photojournalist Boniface Mwangi on Thursday, December 17, apologised to nominated senator Millicent Omanga after the duo were embroiled in a heated online argument. 

    In a statement on his Twitter page, Mwangi acknowledged that he had disrespected himself, his friends and the people who believed in him by engaging in the spat.

    “I get insulted every day and rarely do l lose it. Yesterday l lost it. I am sorry to everyone l offended. I am sorry to Millicent Omanga too. I was out of line,” Mwangi stated.

    Omanga would respond saying; “Apologies warmly accepted.”

    Nominated Senator Millicent Omanga in May 2020.

    The public spat surfaced on Wednesday, December 16, after Omanga posted a meme that had been used to reference her body. The legislator indicated that a section of Kenyans had used the post to troll her.

    The post did not sit well with Mwangi who reacted by demeaning the legislators work, alleging that she had risen up the rank through controversial ways.

    These sentiments irked Omanga who hit back by dubbing Mwangi a socialite activist who relies on donations.

    The legislator accused Mwangi of depending on western sponsors by selling photos of the 2007 post-election violence (PEV) victims. The argument went out of line with the two personalities roping in their family members into their quarrel.

    “My wife unlike you is her own person. Finally, it’s wrong to call a man who has fathered three kids a boy,” the activist defended his family after being insulted by the Jubilee politician. 

    Netizens were quick to praise Mwangi after he apologised to Omanga.

    “Very good….you are now a man enough [sic]. You are welcomed back officially to the great men association,” Tonny Mugiira stated.

    “Thanks, bro, you are mature and all humans are prone to error,” Njagi added.
