Comedian Fred Omondi has been confirmed dead by the police.

He lost his life in a hit-and-run incident on Kangundo Road early Saturday, June 15.

According to a police report seen by Gossipa2z.com, Fred was a passenger on a motorcycle traveling on the wrong side of the road.

The collision occurred near Consolidated Bank involving a matatu owned by Forward Sacco.

“The collision involved a mini-bus from Forward Sacco driven by Stephen Maina from Kayole heading towards the CBD and a motorcycle traveling on the wrong side (Consolidated Bank). As a result, the pillion passenger, Fredrick Odhiambo Omondi, died on the spot,” the report stated.

The rider sustained severe injuries to his legs and fractures in both hands, receiving treatment at Mama Lucy Hospital.

Fred’s body was taken to the hospital’s morgue for postmortem examination.

Fred was a prominent figure in Kenya’s stand-up comedy scene, alongside his brother Eric Omondi, and was notably featured in Daniel Ndambuki’s (Mwalimu Churchill) comedy shows.

Scheduled to host an event at BVB Lounge in Meru later that day, Fred’s sudden passing deeply affected fellow comedians and others.
