Kathiani lawmaker Robert Mbui backs Millicent Omanga in Parliament after viral video

Kathiani lawmaker Robert Mbui says action should be taken against people who disrespect people’s privacy.

While contributing to a motion in Parliament on sexual harassment on April 20, 2023, the lawmaker, in an apparent reference to the recent incident involving Chief Administrative Secretary (CAS) Millicent Omanga, described those who circulate people’s private videos as perverts, saying there is need to protect our dignity as a country.

He said women in offices are always harassed at their workplace while young men are exploited by their female bosses and to get promotions.

He asked the government to consider introducing lessons on sexual harassment in schools.

“We are becoming a sick society. When we find people watching and sharing them, those are perverts and they should not be in this country,” he explained.

The lawmaker further mentioned an incident where a former deputy governor was shown naked on social media by people trying to extort money from him.

Mbui’s statement comes a few days after Omanga’a alleged intimate video went viral on social media.

The alleged video shows the politician in a bed half-naked, with a similar dress she wore in one of tree planting projects.

Mbui also mentioned the recent sexual exploitation of tea workers at James Finlay Kenya Limited and Ekaterra (formerly Unilever Tea Kenya Limited) which was aired on BBC in an investigative documentary.

As per the Computer Misuse and Cybercrime Act, 2018, passed by retired president Uhuru Kenyatta, it is a crime for someone to leak another person’s digital information online.

Ms Omanga has meanwhile received support from the Kenyan online community and some of her colleagues including Nairobi Women Representatives Esther Passaris, Karen Nyamu and Sam Nyamweya.
