Former nominated senator Millicent Omanga has fronted Nakuru governor Susan Kihika as the best choice as Kenya's first woman president.

In her statement on Saturday, February 10, 2024, Omanga stated that the country was ready for a woman president in 2032.

She also expressed that women have made tremendous contributions to the country's progress and displayed exceptional leadership prowess in various fields.

"Women have made tremendous contributions to the progress of this country & have displayed exceptional leadership prowess in various fields. We believe that the country is ready for a woman president in 2032 & the best candidate for the office is H.E. Gov Susan Kihika. It's doable!" Omanga stated.

So far, only two female politicians have vied for the top-seat job since the country became a republic.

Former Kitui Governor Charity Ngilu was the first to vie for the position in 1997 but lost to the late President Daniel Arap Moi.

Narc Kenya party leader Martha Karua followed suit and vied in 2013 but lost to retired President Uhuru Kenyatta.

However, recently, nominated Member of Parliament (MP) Sabina Chege announced that she will become the country's first woman president.

In her remarks, Sabina expressed that women in leadership have all it takes to lead a country and deliver as expected by citizens.

"I would pray to God that, that day comes and happens. that I will be the first female president. When a woman is in leadership she is a mother, she can take care of everyone, sometimes men can be abrasive and highhanded but when a woman is a president you will see changes," she stated.
