Comedian Eric Omondi might be on the verge of being kicked out of his Big Tyme Entertainment offices located in Lavington.
Reports have emerged indicating that some residents have been lobbying colleagues to sign a petition for Omondi to vacate the area.
According to a resident who sought anonymity, officials in the estate have been making an attempt to woo residents to submit signatures to incriminate the comedian for ‘the breach of their peace.’
“They have been moving door to door trying to convince us to submit signatures, so we can say he is causing havoc in an area that was tranquil,” stated the source.
Sources added that residents have turned down the pleas considering the area hosts other offices ranging from health to politics.
The residents claim that Omondi is on the right track since he is creating employment for youth.
“Whatever he is doing is commendable. If he can create employment with entertainment, why should we choke him down? Some of us here are dentists, lawyers, and politicians. We can’t all be in the same industry. Let him continue with his legit business without interference. We love to see him here because he creates a light moment,” they added.
This comes barely two months after the Nairobi Metropolitan services asked Omondi to close the offices because it was located in a residential area.
Upon opening the offices, Omondi received backlash from Kenya Films and Classification Board CEO Ezekiel Mutua who said the comedian had turned the place into a brothel.
However, Omondi has remained defiant stating he won't vacate.
