Despite being arrested for the third time, comedian Eric Omondi has vowed to persist with his protests against the government’s high cost of living.
Following his release from the Central Police Station, Omondi stated that he would continue to fight for the rights of Kenyans who have been adversely affected by the current economic conditions.
Omondi’s initial arrest occurred on February 21 outside Parliament buildings, where he led a demonstration against the high cost of living.
He was subsequently arrested on March 1 for distributing packets of unga to Kenyans at City Stadium.
His third arrest took place on March 28th, as he pulled a cart loaded with cartons of CVs towards State House, intending to present them to President William Ruto, who is presently out of the country.
Eric Omondi clarified that he used a handcart to carry the CVs, which he had amassed from unemployed youths from various regions of the country.
