Popular Kenyan comedian, Eric Omondi has been rebuked by some of his church members and Christian friends for using Jesus Christ mockingly to crack a joke.
During a recent comedy show, Omondi cracked some jokes and even dramaticized Jesus performing some miracles such as multiplying bread and fishes, turning a stone into bread to feed himself and his disciples and also walking on the sea.
Omondi tried to show what would have happened if the son of God was a Kenyan.
The members and leaders of his church, Christ Is the Answer Ministries (CITAM) formerly known as Nairobi Pentecostal Church expressed serious disagreement with him and cautioned him seriously against over-stepping his boundaries especially in religious fields.
Let’s see how cautious Omondi will be in subsequent comedy shows and events.
The footballer turned comedian is one of the highest paid comedians in Kenya with about Sh5million earnings per month.
