Comedian Fred Omondi recently escaped death by a whisker after he was accosted by armed robbers in Woodley Estate, Nairobi.
As he was coming from a gig at the wee hours of the morning, the Crazy Comedy Show star, and brother to celebrated comedian Erick Omondi, was confronted by a gang of six men who pointed guns at his car forcing him to stop.
“They stood in the middle of the road pointing at my car with their guns, but I wasn’t going to stop after all the horror stories I’ve heard of people getting carjacked on that same road,” said Omondi.
Like a scene from an action movie, Fred sped off as the crew shot at his car.
“They shot thrice but only two bullets hit the car. I’m very lucky that no bullet came at me,” he added.
He put up with Eric for three days before his new employer, The Standard Group, moved him from Woodly Estate for security reasons.
“I never stepped back to my place especially after I heard from the security guards that some people came looking for me. I even had friends move me out,” explained Fred.
