Eric Omondi Finally Spills Secrets About His Future Plans

Kenyan comedian Eric Omondi has retracted his previous declaration of quitting comedy in order to focus on activism.

Speaking to Nairobi News, Eric likened quitting comedy to asking a fish to survive outside of its natural aquatic habitat. He explained that he has not found a way to quit comedy since it is something inborn and what he survives on. Eric also disclosed his intention to join politics and expressed his willingness to run for any position from Member of County Assembly (MCA) to the Presidency.

However, he was non-committal on whether he would actually throw his hat in the ring in the 2027 elections, explaining that he prefers not to discuss his future plans openly as it often leads to individuals approaching him for financial assistance.

Eric made a significant announcement regarding his exit from the entertainment industry in March, citing the high cost of living as the primary factor influencing his decision to hold peaceful demonstrations.

During his phone interview with Nairobi News, Eric also revealed that his activism and frequent arrests have become a source of concern for his mother.

She advises him to continue entertaining Kenyans instead. However, Eric intends to have a conversation with her to explain his aspirations and the purpose behind his actions.

Eric also weighed in on the government’s proposed 15% tax on content creators, saying that taxation should be considered if it genuinely contributes towards improving the lives of Kenyans.

He stated that it is unjust to impose taxes on young individuals who are using their creative abilities to generate content, especially when there is a lack of employment opportunities.
