Miguna Miguna Calls Out Raila, ODM Party over Ksh 300,000 Owed to Fred Omondi

Lawyer Miguna Miguna has called out the Orange Democratic Party (ODM) for not paying late comedian, Fred Omondi, for services he offered to the party.

The lawyer noted that Fred had provided emceeing services to the party during the 2013 elections but he was yet to be paid until his death recently.

The late comedian had in, February 2020, sent out an appeal to ODM to have his dues paid, but it is yet to be confirmed if the party complied.

“In 2014 I was called up to be part of the ODM’s MCs. The agreement was Ksh 300,000 which I never received a coin to date,” Fred said.

He went ahead to disclose that proof he had included cell phone videos from fellow MCs that he worked with at the time.

Fred also mentioned that he tried to follow up the case by visiting the party’s headquarters, Orange House, but he was dismissed.

“It’s been 7 years and the proof that I might have is the review of my clips and my fellow MCs, because I was never paid and when I came to Orange House I was told, “Baba anapigania vitu kubwa yangu ni ndogo.” All I’m asking as a youth and artist, I get paid,” he added.

In his plea moments after Fred’s death, Miguna shared a screenshot of an earlier post where he asked the ODM party to pay Fred his dues.

“Fred Omondi is a hardworking, creative, Kenyan hustler who puts food on the table for his family emceeing. In 2013 he provided his emcee services to Raila Odinga and ODM but he has not been paid for 7 years. Rail, pay Fred his dues,” he shared.

Fred died in a road accident on Kangundo Road Saturday morning.

Police said the accident happened after a bodaboda carrying Fred was involved in a head-on collision with a speeding bus around 6 AM.

The accident happened near Caltex Petrol station on Kagundo Road,” a police report filed at Buruburu station stated.

The report further said that the bus was heading to Nairobi CBD from Kayole while the bodaboda was heading in the opposite direction and was on the wrong side of the road.

As a result, the rider collided head-on with the speeding bus.

While Fred died on the spot, the rider suffered serious multiple injuries on both legs and fractured his two hands.
