Eric Omondi Jokingly Says People Who Travelled Outside Nairobi for Festive Period Shouldn’t Return to Nairobi
- Eric Omondi has said Nairobi has been peaceful and clean since most people left for their upcountry homes for the festive season
- According to the comedian, those who remained in the capital city are the only ones who deserve to stay and the rest locked out as they cause mayhem
- Netizens disagreed with his sentiments with some saying Nairobi needs all sorts of people to make it the vibrant city that it is
Veteran comedian Eric Omondi started a conversation that left people on social media with mixed reactions after saying those who left Nairobi for festivities shouldn't return.
Why Eric Omondi wants few people in Nairobi
The comedian shared a video on his Instagram page, calling on Nairobi Governor Johnson Sakaja to ban those who left from re-entering the city.
He opined that those who left the capital city were the people who brought commotion and were the thieves who disturbed the city.
In his thinking, he suggests that Nairobi needs to have gates at different places in the city to ensure that those who left are not allowed back since Nairobi is now peaceful with less people.
“Have you noticed that Nairobi is peaceful? Have you noticed that Nairobi is quiet. Have you noticed that Nairobi is very silent and very clean. And have you asked yourself why? Because the people who contribute chaos, the people who bring problems, usherati na uwizi have all left Nairobi. And we know who they are, na wameenda ushago. And I am requesting governor Sakaja do not allow them to come back,” he said.
He mentioned that those who remained in Nairobi are the only ones who are supposed to be in the city.
Omondi also tagged his friends who left the city like Eddie Butita, Jackie Vike and Daddy Owen who stunned people with village photos while arming on his mother's shamba.
“Let us put gates, pale TRM, pale Limuru, pale Rongai pale Kitengela, wasirudi kwa hii town. They are the problem to this county,” he added.
Here are some of the comments from his social media post:
“I kept on wondering who will raise this important point before people come back to town, thank you, president.”
“Na ako serious sana ni kama anasema kitu ya maana sana.”
“Ati watu wanairobi. Naunajua vizuri vienyeji wote wamerudi ushago, Nai haitakalika bila vienyeji bana.”
“People who remained in Nairobi have dysfunctional families.”
Matatu owners hike prices for travellers
Elsewhere, TUKO.co.ke reported Matatu Owners Association chairman Simon Kimutai announced the possibility of increasing fares during the Christmas season.
Kimutai said the consideration could be based on the rise in fuel prices, which have remained high since March 2022.
He, however, challenged drivers to be careful and responsible during this festive season as they carry out their duties.
