Comedian Eric Omondi is said to have been arrested by police outside the parliament building in Nairobi where he was leading a protest to defend Kenyan musicians.
His intention was to enter parliament and present his two grievances which are;
1. Broadcast stations should be forced to play music by Kenyan musicians at 75%.
2. The best local musicians should be paid the same amount of money as their international counterparts whenever they perform at concerts.
