Nudity was our swimming costume – Babu Owino

Eric has since apologized

Babu in his statement said that everyone should give the comedian a break as people from poor backgrounds like him and Eric only had rivers and lakes for swimming pools.

“We should all give Eric Omondi a break. We from poor families had rivers and lakes as our swimming pools with nudity as costumes,” said Babu in a tweet.

His sentiments come hours after Eric Omondi apologized to the public for the outcry caused with the video he posted swimming naked with young boys in a river.

In his apology, Eric said that he has been a comedian all his life and he had made many mistakes but this was one of those days he had offended many and he was deeply sorry for doing it.
