Embakasi East MP, Babu Owino, has set the political arena ablaze with his latest claims that the government has plans to arrest him and fabricate charges against him. The vocal opposition legislator took to Twitter to express his concerns, “Plans to arrest and fix trumped up charges against me is coming soon.”
However, the die-hard supporter of Azimio leader Raila Odinga did not reveal the possible charges he will face or when he thinks he will be arrested. The MP, who has been vocal at Azimio rallies protesting against President William Ruto’s administration, has been claiming that Raila had won the elections and has even called on retired President Uhuru Kenyatta to protect his win.

Owino is a staunch supporter of Raila and has even gone so far as to say, “Baba has won the elections, just protect his win. What’s the point of Kenyans voting if we rig out the winner?” On December 14, 2021, the MP was acquitted of attempted murder charges after the DJ he shot in January 2020 withdrew the case.

Felix Orinda, commonly known as DJ Evolve, told the court through his lawyer that he did not wish to proceed with the matter. In his ruling, Senior Principal Magistrate Bernard Ochoi said that although the court was not involved in the negotiations, Owino was taking certain obligations towards the welfare of DJ Evolve, who had agreed on an out-of-court settlement.
It seems that Babu Owino is gearing up for a fight against fabricated charges, but only time will tell what the future holds for the MP. Until then, let’s sit back, grab some popcorn and watch the political drama unfold.
