Comedian Eric Omondi has been released from Nairobi's Central Police Station where he was being held following his arrest on Monday afternoon.

Omondi was nabbed on Uhuru Highway while pulling a handcart full of Curriculum Vitaes (CVs) for jobless Kenyans while headed to State House.

The comedian, in a video shared by online content creator Vincent Mboya, disclosed that his release was secured by businessman Gor Semelang’o, who then drove him out of the police station.

Speaking to online media a little afterwards, Omondi remained defiant in his quest, saying he will ensure he delivers the CVs to President William Ruto at State House when he returns to the country from his foreign trip.

"Hizo ma-CV, tutazipeleka zote hatutachoka,” he said.

Omondi further stated that he will not allow the narrative to change from state of the economy and poverty to politics and clout chasing, reiterating that he is in it for a good cause, and not just to keep his name on people's lips.

"The conversation is about poverty, I am the voice of millions of Kenyans and I will shout it, do not play politics with our lives, they want to change the narrative from high cost of living to kuchoma vitu za watu...it will not change if Eric Omondi is alive,” he said.

The controversial funnyman noted that he will continue with his peaceful demonstration, however intimating that he may be forced to change the manner in which he goes about them for better amplification of his message.

"We said that the demonstrations will be daily and they will be daily but in a creative way...I will not stop,” he concluded.
