However, her affiliation with Deputy President William Ruto out her on the receiving end, with some netizens slamming her for bragging yet she is just a nominated senator.
Others criticised Omanga for ‘slaying’ instead of observing the voting process as tasked.

Without Jubilee, your wouldn't be in parliament in the first place. But now you behave like it's UDA that nominated you. Anyway, observe and report the situation as it is.— Victor Oyuko (@VictorOyuko) January 14, 2021

Is that a process anyone would brag about being an observer? That whose outcome is predetermined by use of military intimidation?? 🤪🤪🤪🤪— Sayaret Matkaal🇰🇪 (@Chapala_2) January 14, 2021

Kenyan observers are a waste of public resoures. They never write reports from their observations. Kimunya was in the US the other day and never reported on anything. Wanaenda tu kunyaduana 💦— Firimbi. (@mkkenyahalisi) January 14, 2021
