Babu Owino arrested for assaulting parking attendant

Controversial Embakasi East MP Babu Owino was on Friday arrested by Flying Squad officers outside Parliament buildings for allegedly assaulting a parking attendant in Westlands on January 11.

This comes after the video believed to be of the legislator and his aides roughing up the attendant went viral.

The clip was obtained from CCTV footage at Fotris Plaza in Westlands, Nairobi. It showed a group a group of men alighting from an SUV and beating the helpless attendant.

Online users lashed at the lawmaker after being convinced that the man on the clip was him. He has since denied the allegations saying he was in Mombasa on the said date and blamed Jubilee for the “falsehoods”.

Mr. Owino was detained at Parklands police station.
