Joyce Naserian, lady who had been sentenced to three months in prison for shouting in Nairobi's Central Business District (CBD) has been offered a new job.
Naserian who was interviewed by a vernacular station earlier this month revealed that she was arrested by Nairobi County askaris for shouting in the CBD.
"I was working in town at Old Nation House, next to the fire station, and when I shouted to call a customer, city council officers came and arrested me and took me to Central Police Station," she was quoted as saying.
The woman was then arraigned and offered a KSh10,000 cash bail which she was unable to raise. Consequently, she was locked up at Lang'ata Womens Prison on February 9, and was set to be released on May 9 after the three-month sentence lapsed.
As the video made rounds on social media, comedian Eric Omondi intervened and on Monday, March 13 visited the prison and bailed her out.
"Today we managed to bail out 8 young girls from Langata Women's Prison. Their stories are heartbreaking and simply heartwrenching. We will process more tomorrow and then we move to Nairobi West Men's Prison, then Industrial Area then we go Nationwide. Something needs to change and Change Fast," Omondi wrote on Instagram.
Naserian, who has become the recent internet sensation, was treated to a beauty makeover with the promise of a new job.
"Guess who??? Kutoa!!! Kuosha!!! Kuinua!!! Believe it or not this is Joyce Naserian. It is possible to lift one another. To help one another...Only if we unite!!! Joyce will be offered a job and a new lifeline," the comedian said after sharing photos of the 'new' Naserian.
