Hours after the heart-breaking story of DJ Evolve who was allegedly shot by Embakasi MP Babu Owino was aired on NTV, Director of Public Prosecutions Noordin Haji has swung into action.
The story which was aired on Sunday night caused an uproar with many calling for a speedy conclusion of the case.
In the wake of the uproar, DPP Haji has told the Judiciary to prioritize the hearing of the case after the Covid-19 disruptions seemed to delay justice for the young man who was left paralyzed after the fatal shooting.
The MP is facing charges of second-degree murder and is currently out on bail as his victim lies at home, unable to move or do anything by himself.
Opening up on what transpired on January 17 2020 when he was shot at B Club, DJ Evolve stated that he has come to terms with the events of the day and his current situation.
The shooting incident left him hospitalized for six months until on 18 June 2020 when he was discharged from the Nairobi Hospital.
“I have to come to terms with my situation. Whatever happened was unfortunate.” Stated DJ Evolve in his first interview.
He appealed to Kenyans to pray for his full recovery, adding that he misses the entertainment scene and would make it up to his fans.
“Generally, I am doing better as opposed to when it first happened. I was really traumatized at the beginning but I learnt to live with it. At least nowadays I can be able to sleep unlike before where I couldn’t sleep at all. I kept having flashbacks of that fateful day and I needed medication to put me to sleep.
“I’m slightly able to move my limbs (hands) and that is the much I can do. I can’t be able to move my arms. I haven’t progressed as these were my tools of the trade. There’s no way I can be able to work when I don’t have them. I currently depend on people to do things with me,” he painfully narrated while struggling to speak owing to a tube injected in his neck.
