Comedian Eric Omondi fueled 250 motorbikes for riders in Lang’ata, just one day after securing the release of 22 petty offenders from Nairobi West Prison.
Omondi, who has been making headlines recently for his protests advocating for a lower cost of living, shared a video on social media of himself at a petrol station in Lang’ata, surrounded by bodaboda riders who cheered as their bikes were fueled.
Comedian Omondi stated that people in Kenya, especially bodaboda riders, are suffering due to the high cost of living. He explained that he had fueled the 250 bikes to help alleviate some of their struggles.
“Issue kubwa sanaa hapa Kenya ni mafuta na unga. Watu wanaumia sanaa. Families are going without food. A bigger percentage of these people ni watu wa nduthi. We are calling upon the government to reduce fuel prices whatever it takes. Sisi tutaendelea ku share the little we have with fellow Kenyans. Leo tumewekea 250 nduthi guys petroli. I hope itawaskuma kidogo.
“[The issue at hand in Kenya is the high prices of petrol and maize flour, which is causing people to suffer and families to go without food. A significant percentage of those affected are motorcycle riders. We urge the government to lower fuel prices. In the meantime, we fueled 250 motorbikes for riders. We hope that this will alleviate some of their hardship],” Eric Omondi stated.
