Eric Omondi abandons cross-dressing “after meeting influential people”


Kenyan comedian-turned-activist Eric Omondi will no longer engage in cross-dressing stunts.

Speaking during a local interview, the comedian stated that he was on a mission to fight for the rights of oppressed Kenyans.

“I stopped cross-dressing until further notice. What I am doing right now involves women, children, and more, so it will be hard to see that character,” Eric Omondi commented.

Meeting Influential People

The father of one went on to say that his close association with respectable characters in the country prompted him to change tactics.

“I am meeting very influential people who can’t allow me to dress like that.”

The legendary comedian declared that his career would take a different turn and leave many surprised.

Eric Omondi donned female wear when he launched a new show featuring Kenyan socialites including Shakilla.

Other Kenyan celebrities known for cross-dressing are Kinuthia, Flaqo, Dennis Karuri, Shaniqwa, among others.

Eric Omondi dives into politics

In July this year, Eric Omondi hinted at vying for the Lang’ata Member of Parliament (MP) seat in 2027.

“I’m not replacing or planning to replace anyone, but given the chance, I would. I have never talked about Lang’ata (but if it’s) Kenyans this is what I will tell them. The voice of the people is God’s voice,” Eric Omondi added.

Omondi believes he will be in a better position to champion for the welfare of Kenyans as a lawmaker.

He has been active on social media mobilizing netizens to raise funds for Kenyans facing diverse issues from medical care, hunger to lack of fees.
