Comedian Eric Omondi has recalled an interaction he had with President Uhuru Kenyatta years back.
In an Instagram post, the comic shared a TbT photo conversing with the Head of State, disclosing that he urged him to eat more.
The photo showed Uhuru holding Eric by his shoulders while talking to him.
“I’ll never forget this day. It was May 13, 2018. The president held me by the shoulders, looked me straight in the eye, shook me thrice and said ‘kula bwana, mwili ni mifupa tupu
“That day I went home, got a meal plan and bought a gym. The rest is history,” Eric wrote.
The post sparked reactions with netizens urging him to eat more.
@only_pharon_: He did not tell you to eat women like you are doing.
@antoniothemc: Looks like he also went back home and ate.
@kalishrumii: This November, Jimmy Wanjigi will hold you by the shoulders and say we failed together.
This comes barely a month after Eric explain why he never liked former President Mwai Kibaki
In an update on Facebook, comedian Churchill shared a video of Eric joking about his encounters with the departed Head of State.
Eric noted that Kibaki was the President who he performed before the most but the latter could not laugh at his jokes.
The comic also recalled an encounter with Kibaki at a public function where the former President mistook him for a Kenya Railways worker.
“The following day he was launching Syokimau Railway Station and because I made people laugh, I was invited to the event
“As he was leaving Kalonzo called me to greet him, he looked at me and said, ‘good work you are doing at Kenya Railways’,” Eric said.
