KOT reacts as Wanjigi ‘gifts’ Omondi high-end car
Kenyans on Twitter (KOT) have shared their reactions after businessman Jimi Wanjigi was seen gifting comedian Eric Omondi with a high-end car.
In an undated video that has been shared on social media, Wanjigi, who’s announced his intent to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta ahead of the country’s next general elections in 2022, is seen handing the popular comedian a Chrysler Crossfire.
The vehicle is to assist Omondi in campaigning for Wanjigi’s presidential bid, via the Fagia Wote (sweep them all) slogan.
“You are doing a good job by marketing this dream to the entire nation,” says Wanjigi, who is said to have deep pockets.
“It is a very solid car, use it to pass the message.”

Wanjigi gifted the comedian the car on the day he also accused the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party, in which he wishes to vie for the presidency, of attempting to handpick its presidential candidate other than using the required legal channels.
“It (the decision to handpick) is vague, improper and clearly flies in the face of the mood of the members who wish to participate in a transparent and democratic process to reinvigorate the party for the 2022 elections,” said Wanjigi in a hard-hitting statement.
Although he is yet to publicly declare his presidential bid, opposition leader Raila Odinga is considered favourite to be handed the ODM presidential ticket
