Famous Kenyan comedian, Eric Omondi, has intervened to help a sales lady named Joyce Naserian, who was arrested and jailed for shouting in Nairobi's Central Business District (CBD)

Naserian, who could not pay a cash bail of Sh10,000, was sentenced to three months in Prison. She had been taken to Central Police Station by city council officers and later transferred to Lang'ata Women's Prisons.

"I was working in town at Old Nation House, next to the fire station, and when I shouted to call a customer, city council officers came and arrested me and took me to Central police station," Naserian said during an interview with Inooro TV.

Learning about the situation after the interview, Eric Omondi shared a video of Naserian narrating events that led to her arrest and imprisonment on his Facebook page on Saturday, March 11.

He appealed to anyone with information about Naserian to contact him. The post quickly garnered attention, and Eric gathered the information needed within a day.

"We will be visiting Langata Prison to help this Sister out. So far, a lot of people have come out to offer her help...thank you, @bernicesaroni, for offering her a job. Let's try to get her out first," Eric wrote on Instagram.
