Nairobi County Woman representative Esther Muthoni Passaris has launched fresh attacks on former Churchill show comedian Eric Omondi for what she termed as lack of respect to Orange Democratic Movement leader Raila Odinga.
Speaking at an event in Chungwa house the legislator submitted that the former prime minister had done a lot to the Nation not to deserve any degree of rebuke, as being witnessed from the fanny man.
The woman rep who was openly offended by Eric’s Fagia wote campaign challenged him to showcase whatever he had done to Kenya as a country besides cracking people’s ribs.
“The other day I saw some little comedian here talking about Fagia Wote. What has he ever done other than to make us laugh? At the end of the day we have to respect our elders and we have to respect what they have done.
Esther went on to point the instances when the Orange leader had been teargassed, frustrated and even jailed to make the Country a better and improved place for all.
“The amount of time that Baba has spent in and out of jail, teargassed, running, falling just for this country. The sacrifices he has made to not even be there for his own family,” she said.
Taking her head on in a rejoinder, the self proclaimed African President of Comedy castigated Passaris for belittling him, adding that he will make sure she is ousted from the woman representative seat in 2022.
This is after the Comedian in a past interview promised to lead the youth folk in sweeping out elderly politicians from elective posts and replacing them with youths, in his short video that went viral.
“Did she just call the PRESIDENT “LITTLE COMEDIAN? Esther Passaris, the BROOM is coming for you, I will start with you. FAGIA WOTE,” he posted.
The Eric Omondi-led Fagia Wote slogan emanates from a rallying call by ODM 2022 presidential aspirant Jimmy Wanjigi, to kick out seasoned politicians from the country’s political landscape ahead of the forthcoming 2022 general election.
Wanjigi was earlier endorsed by the comedian, and has since been arguing that Raila Odinga has outlived his usefulness and should now pave way for the new blood in the County leadership.
The Comedian in his video seemingly at the Dandora dumpsite has since been attacked on social media for having been paid to rally the youths behind the Billionaire.
