Eric Omondi has come out to reveal the experience he had 'visiting' a Kenyan police cell this week. In case you forgot, the controversial comedian was arrested on Tuesday while staging his March to Parliament buildings.
The comic who was 'housed' at Central Police Station said that he had a panic when he realised the enormity of what was going on.
He said this on a video he released on his Instagram page;
”There was a moment of panic when I realized I was actually getting arrested… When the OCS came and said, 'arrest him'. Nikasema, weh, kwani wananishika? What you’re seeing around the police car is a moment of anger from the police, a moment of panic from myself. There were like 7 men. They were trying to push me into the car and I knew if I go into this car, it’s over for me."
He then added,
”When I’m pushed and I’m falling down, it’s God… I can’t believe I have no scratch on my body. For the very first time I went into the police cells. Nikaingia uko ndani nikapata wakenya, they were like 10, 12, people. They thought I was in there to record… I told them nimeshikwa, they were laughing… I was inside for 3 and a half hours… The OCS and the OCPD were very nice to me. They said, 'kijana, next time usi fight na polisi'…”

Eric is still planning to have another demonstration next week on Tuesday.
