Even though, according to the list released on Friday, May 29, the name of the nominated senator was missing while the names of 5 others senators remained

However, the statement unearthed that Omanga failed to return the documents after collecting them from the office of the clerk.

Among the Jubilee senator who openly tendered their application  for the position, and who were shortlisted include Stewart Mwachiru Madzayo, Margret Jepkoech Kamar, Isaac Maigua Mwaura, Judith Pareno and Charles Reubeson Kibiru

“Nomination papers were not returned by the following candidate (Millicent Omanga) in respect of whom nomination papers had been collected,” read the statement in part.

By the time Omanga was applying for the position, it is in record that Jubilee party had placed the nominated senator and four other colleagues on chopping board after they reportedly boycotted a parliamentary group meeting presided over by President Uhuru Kenyatta at the State house on May.
