The country continued to mourn the loss of former Churchill Show comedian Fred Omondi, and the comedy fraternity has joined forces to give the fallen entertainer a befitting sendoff.

A 12-member committee comprising the industry’s biggest names are organizing his send-off, sharing details of events leading up to the funeral at the family’s Ugenya home in Siaya County.

They include Dan Churchill Ndambuki, Phelix Odiwuor Jalang’o, Boniface Waweru, Ken Waudo, Terrence Creative, Milly Chebby, Y Y, Grace Mwelu, Dr. Ofweneke, John Onyango, Peter Kiarie, Tonnin Owen Ochieng, and Dedan Chege.

“We want to give Fred a send-off that befits the tremendous impact he had on all of us,” stated Ken Waudo, the committee’s chairperson.

He mentioned that the late comedian’s memorial service will take place at the CITAM Church on Valley Road in Nairobi on Thursday, 27th June 2024, starting at 11:00 am.

Terrence Creative reminded Kenyans to come out in large numbers to attend Fred Omondi’s tribute show dubbed ‘The Last Laugh’ to be held at Carnivore restaurant on Friday, June 21 from 6.00 pm.

He thanked the public for the outpouring of support that has been shown to the Omndi family since the news of Fred’s death, asking them to continue in the same spirit and help in any capacity.

He however flagged social media users for sharing information about contributions made to the family, after a list went viral showing different amounts various individuals have given towards funeral arrangements.

This resulted in the bullying of some contributors by netizens who have accused them of being tightfisted.

“Please let us respect the family, people are hurting out here. Let us respect people who have made their contribution. I have seen circulars condemning people for making their contributions. Whatever amount someone has contributed, you never know what other assistance they have offered behind the scenes,” he pointed out in a presser about the funeral arrangements.

“A contribution is a contribution whether financial or not, so let us respect people. Let us stop spreading rumours that are not necessary,” he added.

Fred passed away in a tragic road accident on Saturday, June 15, after a boda boda he was a passenger on collided with a speeding bus on Kangundo Road.

Fred’s body will be airlifted to Kisumu on Friday, June 28, courtesy of KUPA organisation and will then travel by road to Sega in Siaya County. He will then be raised to rest on Saturday, June 29.
