Nominated Senator Millicent Omanga has conceded defeat in the Nairobi Woman Representative race after Esther Passaris was declared winner.
In a tweet on Sunday Morning, Omanga said that Passaris needs prayers and support for the next 5 years that she will be in office.
“I want to thank the people of Nairobi who voted for me & those who didn’t. I accept the results even though they’re not in my favour. Esther Passaris has won, she deserves our support & prayers as she steers the office of Woman Rep for the next 5 years. May God bless our country,” she wrote.
Her acceptance comes after Nairobi County Returning Officer declared Passaris the County’s Woman Rep-elect.
