Edwin Sifuna responds after comedian Fred Omondi claimed Raila owes him Sh300K

ODM Party Secretary General Edwin Sifuna has responded to comedian Fred Omondi’s claims that ex-Prime Minister Raila Odinga owes him Sh300, 000 from an emcee Job back in 2013.

In a tweet, Sifuna challenged Omondi to produce documentation to their agreement, to enable the ODM party to honour his demands. He added that he has never seen any invoice from the said comedian.

“I have never seen such an invoice. Many of these characters just make noise but when you ask for documentation hawana. Which is why they choose social media instead. If this is a supported expense by ODM I will pay it. Akuje anione,” reads a tweet from Edwin Sifuna.

Unable to reach Mr Odinga

The response comes days after Omondi took to social media, demanding to be paid Sh300K by Odinga for emceeing his rally at Nyayo Stadium back in 2013.

He mentioned that over the years he tried to reach Odinga, but his people including the bodyguards made sure that he never got to him. Even when he went to visit him at Orange house he was told "Baba anapigania vitu kubwa, yako ni ndogo".

Message to Baba

"MESSAGE TO BABA. Hallo Baba. Am a Kenyan Artist. A Comedian, Mc, and Musician. This has nothing to do with Politics. Am just here for some small justice Baba, hope this finds you, because your people made sure I never reached you all these years whenever I demanded for what's rightfully mine. @odingaraila Remember in 2013 when you ran for Presidency, your last rally was at Nyayo Stadium as H.E. Uhuru Kenyatta was at Uhuru Park, I was called upon to be part of ODM's MCs that day alongside Dagoretti MP John Kiarie and Comedian Mdomo Baggy, @kiariejohn @__.mdomo.baggy__ who can confirm the same, and from the clips you can also tell I was there working. The agreement was Ksh.300,000 which I never received a coin to date. This picture above was the last time I saw you while performing @luofestival that was hosted by @jalangoo On this day I tried talking to you about it but your security made sure it was just a handshake, so I decided kutoa aibu na Orengo” reads part of Fred Omondi’s claims.
