Comedian Eric Omondi took to Instagram to reveal to netizens his long lost elder brother. Moments after being saved, his brother is now said to have passed away.
“THIS IS NOT THE LAST IMAGE I WOULD HAVE WANTED TO POST OF MY BROTHER… BUT THIS IS DEFINITELY THE IMAGE I WANT EVERY YOUNG PERSON IN THIS COUNTRY TO SEE!!! JOSEPH ONYANGO OMONDI PASSED ON THIS MORNING AROUND 3AM, BARELY 12 HOURS AFTER I FOUND HIM IN DOWNTON RIVER ROAD. HE WAS ADDICTED TO COCAINE AND OTHER SUBSTANCES AND WAS IN AND OUT OF REHAB FOR THE PAST 19 YEARS. MAY GOD HIMSELF TAKE CHARGE.”
As He explained, his brother was a struggling drug addict and he had been crippled by the substances he was taking.
Joseph Omondi who is Eric’s little-known older brother has been in and out of rehabs due to his drug addiction. The addiction has affected his functionality and Eric was quick to warn those indulging in drugs to take care as it would not be long for them to get to a warrying state where they would not be able to control themselves.

If you are a young person and you follow this account.. This is for you!!! This is my blood brother Joseph Omondi(Same father same mother)… He is the First born, I am the second born… Our third born is Irene Omondi and the last born is Fred Omondi. Joseph has struggled with drug addiction since high school… He has been in and out of rehabilitation. We have tried our best as a family. Because of his addiction he has a tendency to run away from us to avoid Rehabilitation. I tracked him yesterday through a taxi guy who spotted him in Nairobi downtown along Nyandarua Road. @chipukeezy and Nacada have promised to help him. If you are reading this na uko High school ama colle na ushaanza kuonja hizo vitu jua tu kuna time hautaweza kulala bila hizo vitu.
A truly heartbreaking lesson to all the youth out there.
