Orie Rogo Manduli

Photos by Style & Substance .an E.A. Standard publication.

Madam Orie Rogo Manduli famous for her African attire with big head gears.
She is the chairperson of NGO council a seat she really fought for when some group wanted to dethrone her unceremoniously. She has many admirers and critics from the way she carries herself, with pride and glamour. She will never shy away from showing of her figure and attire walking like a peacock. In most of her interviews she will never forget to mention how she became miss Kenya at the age of 16 and regrets having gotten married at a young age and divorced because of getting daughters. She is the mother of three beautiful daughters, later remarried to a Zambian the late Mr. Manduli and got a son.

At such a time in Kenya when we are nearing elections, you can never miss Orie Rogo in the limelight. In the past she has tried to contest in elections for parliamentary seat with no success. In the last elections she was in Ford People party, lost the Starehe seat because people voted in three piece for Narc during Rainbow wave. She later said Ford People promised to nominate her after they nominated Kipkalia Kones. She made a lot of noise and threatened to sue but nothing changed. She later tried Kisumu Town West seat when their MP the late Job Omino passed away but did not succeed.

She has since decamped from Ford People then moved to the flower party Narc Kenya (even supported the banana side during the constitution referendum) but now says it’s a tribal party. She has now moved to ODM and is the race again for Kasarani seat in Nairobi where she is to fight it out with former MP William Omondi (a very quiet MP). She may be in the right party now but still has the hurdle of wining the ODM nominations. Once she wins she will surely get to parliament this time round because she is in the right party with the majority votes in this elections, I can imagine her in parliament it will be fireworks from her style of handling issues.

If you ask me, people like Orie Rogo are not fit to be leaders.

I hope she doesn't get to see the inside of parliament. Just because she's a successful businesswoman does not mean she can be a good leader. Her record speaks for her.

It is such people that Kenyans should note vote for. Oh well, let them exercise their democratic right.

I agree with Ssembonge, her record speaks for her so shes not fit to be a leader. She is better of at Maendeleo ya Wanawake.

What nonsense. How do you define a leader? Have you guys any idea what democracy is all about? My take is that Ms. Manduli has every right to go for whatever elective post she wishes. Women are liberated - if you know what I mean - and I consider Ms. Manduli, together with one Mrs. Wambui Otieno Mbugua as the two of the most progressive women in Kenya. The two women are to Kenya what the likes of Elizabeth Taylor is to the UK/US. Go for it Orie!!!

I wish all female aspirants all the best in this elections and hope we will have more women in parliament this time including Orie Rogo Manduli.

Ssembonge said...

Sue,
We can not vote for people into office just because they are women. Affirmative action is undemocratic. They have to show themselves capable.

Sue said...

Ssembonge, its up to those electing the women to elect those capable. You may not like an aspirant from the way he is portrayed by the media or the public in general but his/her constituents like the person for the work he’s done for them or they think he/she is capable of doing. I agree with you that women should show they are capable and fight it out with their men counterparts
