Eric Omondi really got us in the first half.
Recently Eric has been posting stuff that gave subtle signs that he was joining politics.
It however was not clear which seat he would be vying for. And Kenyans were more than ready to offer their support. See article.
The comedian kept Kenyans waiting eagerly for a very major announcement which was set to be made on 1st September, today.
So taking to his Instagram, the funny man posted a long video urging the young people to endorse businessman Jimmy Wanjigi for president.
Eric, in the video, urges the youth to be ready to take back their country. Because in as much as this nation has been free for 57 years, the youths have known no freedom.
Omondi has pleaded with the youth to be ready to vote out the old people calling them out by their names: Raila, Mudavadi, Kalonzo etc
Speaking with a lot of agitation, Eric has said that this country needs a fresh face, someone who is willing to support the young people. Because 2022 tunafagia wote! Tuko na 68% of the votes, tuko na power ya kudecide nani atakua president… Kwa bunge kuna speaker lakini hatuwaskii, hii nchi mahalj kuna job ni kwa Bible peke yake!… he said in part.
The president of comedy Africa concluded his speech by disclosing that the youths need Jimmy as their President.
Well his announcement has not been quite accepted by many people from the responses seen on the video. Watch the video below:
So are you endorsing Jimmy like Eric?
