Uhuru’s son the latest victim of comedian Eric Omondi’s crazy mimicry

A photo of President Uhuru Kenyatta’s eldest son and his bride during their traditional marriage ceremony is the subject of comedian Eric Omondi’s trademark mimicry.

The original photo of Jomo Kenyatta and Achola Ngobi at their recent traditional nuptials at the First Family’s rural home in Ichaweri village, Gatundu South, was first circulated in social media last weekend.

In the photo Jomo is dressed in an informal shirt and black trouser while Ngobi is in a brown Kikuyu traditional dress and a matching headscarf adorned with cowrie shells. Her outfit is also accessorized with a cowrie shell necklace.

But now Eric, who is famous for creating parodies of songs by different artistes, has posted a picture of himself on Instagram posing as Jomo’s bride alongside a lookalike of the president’s son.

It all started when a section of netizens said they felt that Ms Ngobi resembled the comedian.

The picture, which captures Eric looking lovingly at his ‘partner’ has been appreciated by most netizens for its creativity.
