ODM politician Babu Owino has issued a statement explaining why he shot a DJ yesterday night. According to the MP,the DJ was among youths who wanted to assassinate him. He took action after the crowd charged at him.
Here is a statement from the former SONU Chairman:
“A few weeks ago, I made a public statement regarding threats that I had been receiving against my life. At the turn of the year, I reported an attempted assassination at the Parliament Police Station under OB number OB21/17/11/2019 at 17:28hrs. I have been living under the weight of intimidation and threats by my political opponents.
Yesterday was the culmination of these efforts by my enemies. While enjoying the company of my friends at a popular Nairobi restuarant, I was surrounded by a large group of aggressive individuals. In the melee, there was an exchange of gunfire.
I invite the relevant authorities to conduct their investigations without fear or favor and I remain confident that the truth will come out.
I urge my supporters to remain calm. I will continue to serve wananchi fearlessly. This will not deter me from supporting H. E Uhuru Kenyatta and H. E Raila Odinga in the journey to transform our country.
Comrade Babu Owino,
MP, Embakasi East and Leader, Youth For Africa Movement”
