He expressed confidence that the parliamentarians are going to pass it and have it signed into law by President Ruto.
This is not the first time Eric has taken to the parliament building to petition for the same issue. A few months ago, Omondi decided to lock himself inside a cage outside the parliament building until his concerns were addressed.

In his demonstration, Eric was seeking to have parliament discuss and pass a law that makes it mandatory for Kenyan media outlets to play 75% of the Kenyan content.

Last year Eric took on a role of a savior for Kenyan artists when he kicked off a campaign to have Kenyan media outlets play 75% of Kenyan content.

In his argument Eric claimed the Kenyan art industry from music to film is ragging behind out of neglect by the Kenyan media since they only concentrate on playing just foreign content on radio and Tv.

He further laid the blame on the Kenyan artists for laxity and allowing themselves to be used just as curtain-raisers by other foreign artists when they come to the country.
