  • Renowned comedian Eric Omondi attracted the attention of Health CS Mutahi Kagwe on Thursday, April 9, after he recorded a video imitating him.

    In his usual daily briefs, the CS mentioned that he would try as much as he could, not to run the presser as Omondi had depicted in the video that has since gone viral.

    "I will try very much not to do it the Eric Omondi style," Kagwe shared a light moment with the journalists before he began his briefing.

    In Omondi's video that was published on Tuesday, April 7 and has been trending on Youtube, he posed as the CS during one of his briefings.

    He was surrounded by three people (posing as Health officials) fully covered in masks when making his speech.

    His mode of speech and style of delivery clearly depicted how the Health CS presents his usual daily briefings.

    Omondi started by outlining some of the measures that the government had put in place to curb the Covid-19 pandemic.

    Further, he used a case study of a patient known as Kevin Otieno, whom he stated had arrived in the country on March 8, 2020, and had failed to self-quarantine.

    "What are we trying to say, when we ask you to self-quarantine, we expect you to do it on your own without government supervision.

    "Kenyans must be serious about this issue," Omondi stated.

    Omondi, a celebrated comedian, has managed to keep his audience tickled with his entertaining performances.

    President Uhuru Kenyatta on Monday, April 6, directed the Ministry of Sports, Culture and Heritage to set aside Ksh.100 million to cushion local artistes from the effects of the coronavirus pandemic.

    He stated that the Ksh100 million funds would allow artists, actors and musicians to continue entertaining the public through TV, radio and the internet.
