Comedy personality Eric Omondi has shared a message of hope to commemorate his 41st birthday.

In a social media post, Omondi likened his new age to Israelites saying it marks the beginning of a new life

"As I turn 41 today I can only reflect on the Journey and Prepare for a brighter future for me and my Countrymen. Just like the Israelites wandered the Wilderness for 40 years, I feel like this is the Year we start our Journey Into that PROMISED LAND. Very soon our lives will flow with Milk and Honey because this is the WILL OF GOD," he wrote.

His birthday comes days after Omondi was arrested for unlawful demonstrations outside parliament buildings over what he termed a high cost of living.

The comedian was arrested on February 21 alongside 16 others along Parliament Road and arraigned in court on February 22 where he was charged with organizing unlawful demonstrations and was released on a cash bail of Ksh10,000.

On Monday, March 6, he was denied anticipatory orders after the court declined to issue orders to stop the police from arresting and intimidating him, as the matter is still in court.

In his ruling, Milimani’s Chief Magistrate Lucas Onyina said that it is not within the jurisdiction of his court to issue anticipatory orders, as such orders are reserved for courts of higher jurisdiction.

Lawyer Danstan Omari told the court that their client was arrested on March 1, while distributing food to the vulnerable, in a food distribution exercise, on account that he had violated the bond terms issued by the same court.

He further informed the court that Omondi, after the arrest, was moved from one police station to another without being charged or being arraigned in court.

“Your honour, our client was arrested last week and taken to the Industrial Area Police Station, then to Gigiri Police Station where he was held incommunicado and his lawyers denied the opportunity to access him,” Omari told the court.
