Mbita MP Millie Odhiambo is one of the most vocal female MPs in the August House today. She has taken on her male colleagues head on for a while and even had an altercation with her party members a few months ago when she claimed that she acquired the ODM ticket to run for the parliamentary seat fraudulently.
Millie is a lawyer and behind her is a story that tells who Millie really is.
According to the Nairobian, the MP has come out to explain why she has no child of her own.
Millie is married to a Zimbabwean, Mr. Mabona, and she says that the distance between her and her foreign husband cannot allow them to have a child of her own. She also adds that she is not comfortable having a child with him and present it to Kenyans as their own child.
“One of the reasons I still don’t have a child is my lifestyle – I am married to non-Kenyan and I do not want to have a child with another man and purport to present it as my husband’s baby. Because of the distance and my age, we cannot have a child naturally, unless of course we go back to the biblical times of Abraham and Sarah. But miracles are in short supply nowadays,” Millie told the Nairobi.
Millie went on to share her secret with Taita Taveta women rep Joyce Lay. Lay is also said not to have a child of her own but one she got through assisted reproduction.
Millie also reveals that she always gets pressurized by her colleagues to have a child of her own.
