Controversial Embakasi East MP Babu Owino could now be off the hook after DJ Evolve, through his advocate, asked the courts to withdraw the attempted murder case against him.
Felix Orinda, popularly known as DJ Evolve, made the shocking request after what he terms as intense deliberations between him and his family members. The family has reportedly advised the ailing entertainer to concentrate on is healing rather than criminal proceedings against the legislator.
Through his lawyer Kenneth Mumbo, the DJ argues that the case has derailed his healing process due to divided attention.
The office of the Director of Public Prosecutions has however begged the courts to grant the more time to assess the mental state of the DJ. The DPP maintains that they need to establish the motivation behind the sudden change of tune of the DJ and his family members.
The presiding judge has granted the DPP his wishes before terminating the case.
“It is my considered view that the application by the prosecution is merited and once the DPP satisfies himself of the issues raised is expected that a comprehensive response will be given that will be able to guide the status of this case going forward.”read part of the court ruling
