Controversial Comedian Eric Omondi has been given a 48-hour ultimatum by the government of Kenya to pull down all his wife material videos or face the full wrath of the law.
Kenya Film and Classification Board (KFCB) CEO Ezekiel Mutua, on Saturday, March 13, 2021 noted that the videos of the viral wife material show were still trending online especially over the social media.
In his statement, Mutua ordered that the wife material pornographic videos be pulled down by Monday morning.
“The pornographic videos must be taken down by 8 am on Monday, March 15. Otherwise…,” Mutua stated.
The Kenya Film and Classification Board (KFCB) CEO also acknowledged the Comedian’s apology adding that Omondi has requested to settle the matter out of the court.
“Eric Omondi asked for an out of court settlement of the case against him, but apparently the explicit videos are still circulating on his social media platforms,” Mutua added.
Mutua further argued that Omondi’s wife material video contents are not safe for the society and is affecting the government’s fight against pornography.
“I have never understood exactly what you do for a living. Please visit Eric Omondi Studios and see what we are about to do to help young and upcoming talents,” Omondi once reprimanded Mutua.
On Thursday, March 11, the entertainer was arrested alongside 15 East African female contestants for his Wife Material season 2 show following numerous complaints by Mutua.
KFCB said Omondi was apprehended as he had violated the provisions of the Films and Stage Plays Act Cap 222 of the Laws of Kenya by producing and distributing unauthorized films. The 16 suspects were each released on Ksh50,000 police bond.
Omondi issued an apology to Mutua and defended his initiative saying that its purpose was to entertain and promote culture.
