Sharing the heartening news on his Instagram account, Omondi expressed gratitude for the collective efforts that made it possible to settle the outstanding amount.
This allowed the release of the deceased, allowing the grieving family to finally lay their son to rest.
In a post, he wrote,
“Weeping may endure for the night, but Joy Comes in the morning…This family waited 5 Years to bury their son. Kenyans came together and Came through for them.”
“Enyewe, unity is everything…Ni sisi tu kwa sisi. We are burying tomorrow. God bless you guys! We did it, and God is happy,” he added.
A poignant video shared by Omondi showcased the comedian and a team of compassionate individuals carrying the casket of the deceased, identified as Gori, out of Chiromo Mortuary.
