Wednesday, June 3, 2020 – Controversial Embakasi East Member of Parliament, Babu Owino, has scoffed at those dragging him for shooting DJ Evolve on social media.
The youthful legislator has been on the receiving end from netizens over the incident that left the young DJ, whose real name is Felix Odhiambo Orinda, bed-ridden for months now.
While Babu agreed to pay the hospital bill that has run into several millions and engaged in an aggressive PR campaign to sanitize his image, the shooting that happened in a popular city club early this year has continued to haunt him.
On Wednesday, Kenyans on twitter blasted the MP via the tag #JusticeforDJEvolve
However, the legislator has hit back saying that in politics negative publicity is extremely good publicity, hinting that what was being propelled about him was just publicity.
Taking to twitter, Babu who has been offering free KCSE revision lessons online wrote:
“In politics publicity is publicity, Negative publicity is extremely good publicity,”
Babu Owino, real name Paul Ongili, was arrested after the shooting incident and spent 21 days at Industrial Area Police Station before he was released on a cash bail of Sh 10 million.
As part of his release, he was ordered not to drink alcohol or take narcotics in a public place, or interfere with witnesses, until the case is heard and determined.
