Erick Omondi Arrested for Leading Protests in Kisumu

Erick Omondi Protests in Kisumu

Erick Omondi was arrested on Wednesday morning for leading peaceful demonstrations against the rising cost of living in Kisumu.

It is not the first time that Erick has found himself on the wrong side of the law. The controversial Kenyan comedian has been leading demonstrations in Nairobi for quite some time now.

This time Omondi took his protests to Kisumu where he led a group of youth in peaceful demonstrations over unemployment, high cost of living, and delays in HELB disbursement.

The protestors carried banners, mattresses and other materials to show their frustrations, although some people consider Erick Omondi’s actions as clout chasing. The group of youth were seen shouting, laughing, raising banners, walking, and occasionally sleeping on their mattresses along the road.

Their protests did not last long since police officers arrived at the scene immediately and arrested the facilitator of those demonstrations.

Eric Omondi might be trying to catch some attention and increase his online audience, but it is a reality that a majority of graduates are currently unemployed. It would be wrong for Erick Omondi to use unemployed youth to build his online community.

There should be proper and planned ways of helping the youth to address the issue of unemployment and prevent mental health problems or desperate pursuit of religious redemption as we have seen in the Shakahola Massacre.
