Troubled Embakasi East MP Babu Owino’s lawyer Cliff Ombeta has spoken on a clip that went viral showing what transpired before and after firing at DJ Evolve on Friday, January 18, 2020.
Speaking to the press on Saturday, January 18, from Gigiri Police Station where the MP was moved to, Cliff Ombeta criticised that the CCTV footage may have been edited.
The lawyer explained that the 18-second video should not be used to reach a conclusion about the MPs conduct at the club.
“The clip also allegedly shows what transpired in the club, you can see its just a few seconds. Babu had been in that club for much longer. Babu had been in the club for a better part of the night.
“We need that the DCIO and any other investigating team that’s proceeding with this matter to take the clip in its entirety so that we do not only pick an issue that we can see and forget part of it that could have been building up to that particular moment. An edited clip should not be a conclusion to this particular case,” Ombeta told journalists.
He also clarified that Babu did not maliciously drag the victim was claimed by netizens.
“People need to understand that carrying and dragging him on the floor was as a result that nobody else was coming forward to help him. What could he do? He had to take the patient to the hospital, he had to save a life…” he added.
