Comedian Eric Omondi Arrested Half Naked While Leading Protestors Outside Parliament
“Bado mapambano, mapambano, bado mapambano,” the group led by the commedian chanted while calling on the Kenya Kwanza leaders to act on the rising cost of living terming it as an economic crisis.
The Comedian Eric Omondi has been arrested while leading a group of half naked youths protesting over the country’s high cost of living outside the precincts of Parliament.
They were protesting over increased taxes which they said have made life untenable.
The youth who brought business along Parliament Road to a standstill demanded an audience with National Assembly Speaker Moses Wetangula to air their grievances.
Carrying placards written ‘high cost of living’, ‘high cost of electricity and cooking oil,’ they have blamed the National Assembly for the current situation.
The youth who were walked shirtless only doning black boxers were heard chanting “vijana msilale bado mapambano”
The police officers manning the precincts of Parliament quickly intervened by lobbying tear gas canisters to disperse them.
Eric Omondi is now detained at the central police station in Nairobi.
