Court declines DJ Evolve’s bid to withdraw criminal case against MP Babu Owino

An application by Felix Orinda, popularly known as DJ Evolve, to have the attempted murder case against Embakasi East MP Babu Owino withdrawn, has been dismissed.

Milimani Court Trial Magistrate Bernard Ochoi noted that the unconditional withdrawal of the case is not appropriate, further saying the legislator must come out openly and tell the court what he has offered the DJ’s family.

The Magistrate says that the court has also not been told whether compensation has been made, despite the serious injuries suffered by the DJ.

Magistrate Ochoi, however, noted that the involved parties are at liberty to engage.

Babu Owino was early last year charged with attempted murder after allegedly shooting and wounding the DJ at Nairobi’s B-club. He is out on cash bail.
