Comedian Eric Omondi has offered advice to Lang’ata Member of Parliament Felix Odiwuor, popularly known as Jalang’o, suggesting that he should extend apologies to a range of individuals and groups, including Azimio la Umoja leader Raila Odinga.
In a recent interview on Radio 47, Omondi recommended that Jalang’o should begin by apologizing to Raila Odinga.
Omondi also advised Jalang’o to apologize to the residents of Lang’ata, the political party ODM (Orange Democratic Movement), and even seek forgiveness from God.
“What I would like to advise Jalang’o is, he should wake up early, get ready, have his breakfast, get into his car and head to Baba Raila Amollo Odinga, kneel before him and ask for forgiveness,” he said.
“After that, he should go back to parliament, ask for forgiveness from the voters and then head to church so that he can ask for forgiveness from God as well as the ODM members.”
Omondi conveyed that failure to undertake this series of apologies could hinder Jalang’o’s success. He emphasized the significance of reconciling with those he may have offended.
When asked if he would consider running for the Lang’ata seat in case of Jalang’o’s dismissal, Omondi responded by stating that he believes in the principle that “the voice of the people is the voice of God.”
He expressed his reluctance to actively seek the Lang’ata seat but asserted that he wouldn’t want the MP to give it up, feeling that it would be letting down his constituents.
“My major problem at the moment is not Lang’ata but President William Ruto. I usually tell people that concerning lang’ata, the voice of the people is the voice of God. All the voices I’ve been hearing about me vying for the seat are not my voice but that of God,” he said.
