Eric Omondi has been arrested outside Parliament buildings in Nairobi.
The comedian was arrested while leading a group of shirtless young men in demonstrations outside Parliament buildings as they demanded the state to lower the cost of living.
Moreover, the rioters dressed in black shorts and bare chests brought business around parliament to a standstill, with onlookers milling around to watch.
Police officers ordered a stop to the demonstration asking them to disperse, but they ignored forcing police officers to use teargas.
As such Erick Omondi was arrested and taken to a destination yet to be established in the ensuing fracas.
The shirtless youths were carrying placards written “high cost of living” high cost of electricity” “stima juu, tax juu” among other publications.

They sat outside Parliament Buildings displaying their placards calling for the legislators to intervene and reduce prices of commodities.
Nonetheless, this is the second time Eric Omondi has been arrested while protesting outside parliament buildings.
In February 2022, the comedian chained himself in a cube outside parliament buildings, with a bold placard written ‘Play 75 percent’.
He was then lobbying for 70 per cent local content creation and stream in the local media stations.
