Jubilee nominated Senator Millicent Omanga has been forced to address claims that she is the subject in a viral picture in which a woman is seen jumping over a fence.
The woman, whom several Kenyans have claimed to be the outspoken Senator, allegedly jumped over a fence at Kasarani Police Station.

However, the politician who is a close ally to DP William Ruto, said she is not the subject in the picture. She claimed that she would cause a huge earthquake if she tried that gimmick.
“Disregard the propaganda about me jumping over Kasarani police station fence. It is an idle rumour worth no one’s attention.
“Sincerely, how can I jump, over anything, let alone a high fence, without Kenya experiencing earth tremor?” she said.

Kasarani OCPD Peter Mwanzo also refuted the claims, saying Omanga was not at the police station on Wednesday.
“I suspect the allegations are founded on a political rivalry that has, of late, gone online,” said Mwanzo.
“Neither the senator nor her relative was booked as a detainee or visitor at the police station,” he added.
Mwanzo said Kasarani Police Station fence does not look like the one captured in the viral image.
