Nominated Senator Millicent Omanga caused drama at NCIC offices after she had been summoned by the commission over allegations of instigating political violence.

Nominated Senator Millicent Omanga on March 8, caused drama at the National Cohesion and Integration Commission offices.

In a video seen by NairobiLeo.co.ke, the senator could be seen going into the NCIC boardroom before unleashing at an officer.

She can be heard demanding to know why she had been kept waiting for more than an hour.

Senator Omanga had responded to a summon by the commission over allegations of fueling incidents of political unrest experienced in the Kabuchai by-election.

"We have been seated there for the last one hour, for how long? You should’ve given us timelines, if you told me to come at 12 pm, I would’ve come here at 12 pm… but you told me to come at 11 am.

"So if you knew you were taking an hour or two for every member, you should’ve calculated and given me my time... it is so unfair," Omanga lamented.

Here is the video: 


She along with nine other legislators had been summoned by the commission to answer for allegations of fueling chaos in the Matungu and Kabuchai by-elections.

During the incident, Omanga was in the company of Msambweni Member of Parliament Feisal Bader who was also among the leaders summoned.

Mumias East MP Benjamin Washiali and his Kiminini counterpart Chris Wamalwa also honoured their summons.

Others summoned included Homa Bay Woman Representative Gladys Wanga, Kakamega Senator Cleophas Malala, Mt Elgon MP Fred Kapondi and Malindi MP Aisha Jumwa.

NCIC Chairman Samuel Kobia while summoning the leaders on March 7, vowed that the leaders would face maximum punishment if found guilty of the allegations.

"We will ensure the purveyors of hate and ethnic contempt are in jail, and as they wait to go to jail, we will put them out of the leadership of this country and ensure they never run again in this country," Kobia had stated.
