Eric Omondi Considers Political Career, Hints At Engaging Raila & Ida Odinga

Comedian Eric Omondi has hinted at the possibility of entering the political arena, and the role that political Azimio leader Raila Odinga and his wife Ida might play in his potential political career.

Omondi’s philanthropic efforts and activism have fueled rumors of political ambition, and he recently shed light on his discussions with the Odingas and his contemplation of a political future.

On September 11, Omondi met with Raila Odinga, a move that many interpreted as a significant step toward a political career.

Omondi expressed his gratitude for the meeting, saying, “Spent the day with Baba Yesterday and received too much wisdom. The future is too bright. There is a lot of Hope. Tomorrow looks good.”

The following day, on September 12, Omondi spent time with Ida Odinga, further fueling speculation about his political aspirations.

However, in an interview with Mzazi Willy Tuva on Radio Citizen, Omondi clarified that these meetings were not politically motivated but were rather focused on other aspects of life.

He pointed out that should he venture into politics he would have to consult Raila and Ida.

“Maneno ya siasa ilikuja sababu nilianza kusaidia watu, lakini huo muda ukifika nitarudi tena kwa baba na mama. Juzi tumeongea mambo ya biashara na ndoa,” Omondi explained.

Omondi also addressed the ongoing rumors about his potential candidacy for the Lang’ata parliamentary seat.

He acknowledged the significant support he has received from his followers and the encouragement to run for office, saying, given the effort he has put into pushing for change, he is seriously thinking about running for office.

It remains to be seen whether Omondi will ultimately decide to run for political office. However, his recent meetings with Raila and Ida Odinga, as well as his admission that he is considering a political future, suggest that he is at least open to the possibility.
