There was a Big Conversation debate hosted by Citizen TV on Wednesday after Trade Cabinet Secretary Moses Kuria slammed comedian Eric Omondi on live TV.
CS Kuria, while faulting the comedian over his criticism of the government, expressed regret over what he claimed was having sponsored Omondi for a trip to the US seven years ago.
The money he used to support the comedian then, he should have instead used it to have fun. “Ni lazima tuwe watu ambao tunajilinganisha na dunia nzima. Nimeskia Eric akisema ni kijana. Miaka saba iliyopita nilichukua pesa yangu nikampeleka America ndio aone vile dunia iko. Saa hii vile anaongea, afadhali ningetumia hio pesa kwa sherehe,” Kuria stated amidst laughter.
Omondi who was also on the same platform had taken a swipe at the President William Ruto-led administration claiming it has been making empty promises.
He further dismissed the Housing Fund saying it was a wrong conversation.
“I want to call out the Kenya Kwanza government because we heard them on the campaign trail where they promised Kenyans cheaper life, a better life, and an easier life,” he said.
“We are having the wrong conversation; we are talking about housing. The discussion should be about the high cost of living.”
