Netizens have been left with a surprise after comedian Erick Omondi got arrested on Tuesday morning at Parliament building leading demonstrations.
According to details from K24 TV, the comedian had earlier urged music artists and news reporters to join him in demonstrations heading to Parliament building to demand for increased play of Kenyan music and a better payment for artists during stand up performance.
Below are netizens reactions on the above post;
"Why are Kenyan police always this brutal yawa?? This is not right and besides article 37 allows for peaceful demonstrations. It's the cops bringing in the violence. Ai. This ain't right buana!" A comment read.
"Whatever it is all about or whatever it is, mishandling a person this way is not humanly at all. What is the problem with Kenyan police? They are possibly depressed or have their personal issues. Yaani police ndio wanamshikashika kama mob! Dzaamn!" A comment read.
"Eric Omondi is simply experiencing a midlife crisis. Someone should reach out. The guy needs a family(wife and children) to settle down. One doesn't need to frown to signal depression." A comment read.
"Kudemonstrate is a human right whether its outside the state house parliament supreme court. Whatever this is is an abuse of human rights kwani wangeacha watu wa demonstrate wasingeendelea kuwa MPs why silence opponents. A very common atrocity in Afrika but a very abusive one." A comment read.
"Woi Eric O! 😢 Sorry to see this happened to you today. Creatives are humans too. I may not always like what you create but you must be given the right to create and earn a living from it. It’s wrong what the askaris did. Wrong. @FredMatiangi this is senseless." A comment read.
