The war of words between the Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB) Chief Executive Ezekiel Mutua and self-proclaimed president of comedy Eric Omondi is seemingly not ending soon.
Recently Mutua provoked Omondi while speaking at a radio interview where he is heard terming the comedian broke and a beggar.
According to Mutua, the comedian pretended previously that he contributed Sh200,000 to Bahati after the KFCB cancelled the deal with the singer.
“Hakuna pesa alitoa. Omondi ni maskini…hizo ni sarakasi za kujionesha. Wanafanya hizo sarakasi waoneshe wanakejeli serikali lakini hakuna pesa ya kweli.” He said
While adding more, Mutua revealed that all these artists in the industry are broke and only survive due to clout chasing and selling ‘dirty content’.
“Hawa watu wote ni maskini bwana wa kusaidiwa. Mbona hakumpatia mbeleni?Omondi hana ata mia ata elfu kumi ya kupatia watu…wasanii wanaumia…yeye ni muombaji. Sarakasi ndio zinafanya wapate depression. We talk to them and we know them and we know who is making money,” said Mutua.
After the video of Mutua criticizing the comedian went viral, Omondi sent a reply accusing Mutua of swindling public funds to survive.
“ENOUGH is ENOUGH!!! We have to stop this NONSENSE!!! All the money I make is through blood and Sweat, most of the money you make is through Misappropriation of Public funds. Kama mimi ni Maskini basi wewe ni MWIZI, wa PESA za Serikali. Eric stated
Omondi further lashed out at the KFCB boss for giving out fake promises to artists saying that it’s time for Mutua out of the office and he will make sure he ejects him once he is back in the country from Tanzania.
“You promised @mulamwah only to withdraw at the last minute, then you did the same with @bahatikenya only to let him down on the day of his event I had to come through for him like a true brother, but you are a pathological liar Daktari,”
“I am currently in Dar es Salaam about to make HISTORY by filling up the NATIONAL STADIUM and making money while at it. I promise you by the time I land back in Kenya I will ensure you are not occupying that office by September, juu you cannot call an entire industry MASKINI ambao hawajiwezi. Hawa ni Vijana ambao wanajituma ili wapate chakula. ENOUGH!!!” wrote Omondi.
