Babu Owino Set Free

Troubled Embakasi East MP Paul Ongili alias Babu Owino has finally succeeded to secure a bail after the hearing of the application on Monday, January 27.

The family of the shooting victim had objected the plea saying the legislator would use his influence to interfere with witnesses as well as their security and that of their son.

The MP has been granted a Ksh 10 million cash bail and is to be released upon payment of the first Ksh 2.5 million.

Chief Magistrate Francis Andayi ordered the bail to be paid in four phases. He said some of the money will be used in settling the hospital bill for DJ Evolve and the remainder to serve as the bail.

The MP has also been ordered to refrain from taking alcohol or any related drinks until the case is completed.

Babu Owino has been behind bars since January 17 when he was arrested after allegedly shooting one DJ Evolve at a club in Nairobi.

The DJ is currently recuperating at Nairobi Hospital where he is in the Critical Care Unit.
