CS Omamo throws her weight behind ‘big is beautiful’ campaign – VIDEO

Defence Cabinet Secretary Raychelle Omamo has thrown her weight behind the “big is beautiful” movement, saying plumpness should not trouble anyone.

Her address to students of Moi Forces Academy in Nakuru, with a clarion call that every creation of God is beautiful, will excite proponents of the “big, beautiful woman” brand, which is out to disabuse the notion that slimness defines beauty.

Ms Omamo urged the girls to stop the fallacy of attempting to fake their looks to appear like others and instead remain natural.

The CS observed that many women have been obsessed with slimming their bodies and lightening their skins.


“You want be like Beyonce, you want to lose weight to be thin, you want to be light skin, you want all these things but you know the Lord does not make mistakes and you are good enough,” Ms Omamo said.

The minister, who was the guest of honour at the school’s closing day ceremony, thrilled the audience when she advised that people should use only healthy and hygienic weight management methods such as taking lemons instead of the over-the-counter drugs.

To Ms Omamo, the lemons represented a natural way through which women can maintain a healthy and hygienic society, instead of struggling with the popularized ways.
