Popular Kenyan comedian Eric Omondi has been accused of conning a woman only identified as Wambui.
The woman claims that Omondi hired a car from her only to abandon it in Mombasa.
The woman says that the entertainer ditched the car at Moi International Airport in Mombasa and returned to Nairobi without informing her.
Wambui says that police officers who towed the vehicle from the airport said it had been parked on a yellow line.
The woman says she was forced to pay Sh7,500 breakdown fees, Sh5,000 for obstruction and a further Sh2, 500 for parking.
She claims Omondi has refused to refund her the cash even after promising to do so.
However, Omondi has denied the claims, stating that he does not know the woman.
He has also threatened to report her to the police for tarnishing his name.
“Hata sijui huyo mama ni nani. Nitampelekea polisi. Amenipatia free publicity. Everytime watu wanataja eric omondi, mimi hufurahi. Amenipatia free publicity.” says Omondi.
The celebrity also says he was not in Mombasa during the period the woman claims the car was abandoned.
Some Kenyans online have accused Omondi of lying since his Instagram activity shows he was in Mombasa during that period.
The woman has shared screenshots of her conversation with Omondi and a payment receipt given to her by police after settling the fines.
