Shebesh, Omanga kiss and make up after dirty nominations campaign – VIDEO

Nairobi’s Jubilee Party Women Rep candidate Rachel Shebesh and her erstwhile political rival Millicent Omanga have kissed and made up.

An amateur video uploaded on Shebesh’s Facebook page confirms as much.

It shows a visibly excited Omanga dancing in jubilation alongside Shebesh in a vote hunting mission.

What’s more, Omanga dons a black t-shirt emblazoned with the words “Omanga for Shebesh”.

“We are only strong when we are united. It is a great day for Nairobi Women Leadership as I united with my sister Hon. Rachel Shebesh to came up with a formidable team that will see her Re-election as the Nairobi Woman Rep in August 8 2017. Hon Shebesh has the capabilities to improve and champion the lives of our women, youth and PwDs both socially and economically,” Omanga wrote on her Facebook page.

This comes barely two months after the two politicians tussled publicly to win nomination for the Nairobi seat.

Shebesh eventually triumphed, but it was a contest in which abuses were exchanged bitterly between the two camps, with each accusing the other of rigging.


At some point during the nominations, Shebesh stormed the Nyayo stadium tallying centre and accused the returning officers of working to rig her out in favour of Omanga.

She even promised to “arrest” them in the full glare of the media.

The later retaliated by promising to deal with Shebesh “physically” in the event the opportunity presented itself.
