Africa-Press – Kenya. Comedian and artist Kamau Kinuthia alias Omosh was on Friday, September 10, received by the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) Secretary General Veronica Maina at the party’s headquarters in Lavington, Nairobi.
A statement by the party indicated that Omosh had registered as a member, adding that he had endorsed Deputy President William Ruto’s bottom-up economic model.
The comedian later donned the UDA party t-shirt as well as a cap and posed for photo with the party’s Secretary General.
“He (Omosh) said hardworking Kenyans who lacked opportunities will benefit from the revolutionary economic model,” reads an excerpt posted on UDA’s social media pages.
Speaking to Kenyans.co.ke, Omosh noted that he was an entertainer who had friends in most of the political parties. Further, he dismissed reports of being committed to the UDA party.
“I am an artist and I entertain the whole country, all communities. I am not partisan to any party and I don’t like politics,” he stated.
Creative arts has proven to be an effective medium for expressing politicians representations and aspirations, especially during the campaign period.
With only a year to the general elections, entertainers and artists have begun getting endorsements to represent parties and target the Kenyan youth who make up most of the population.
Days ago, comedian Eric Omondi disclosed that presidential aspirant Jimi Wanjigi had appointed him to be his chief campaigner.
He announced that he would be communicating the tycoon’s vision to Kenyans.
“He has shared with me his manifesto and development agenda for Kenya. Now I’m his official spokesperson who’ll break down and convey his agenda to Kenyans,” the comedian revealed.
