The Embakasi East Member of Parliament Paul Ongili alias Babu Owino, on Monday, March 8, promised to carry his own cross should he be found guilty of shooting DJ Evolve.
The MP who was speaking during an interview at Spice FM, also said that he was willing to serve a jail term if indeed he is found culpable
“The matter is before a court of law, If I’m found guilty there’s no problem, I’m willing to serve. Jails are meant for human beings. I will serve my time, I will live my life, I will carry my own cross,” said Babu.
The MP added that no one should think that his current position as a lawmaker can influence the outcome of the case.
“I am an ordinary citizen born to ordinary parents. It is not about my position which some think that can be used to influence anything,” Babu Owino added.
The legislator also noted that should the court fail to find him guilty, Kenyans should be ready and willing to accept the verdict.
It was reported on January 17, 2020, that the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) had confirmed that Babu Owino would be charged with attempted murder.
Babu Owino was arrested by detectives based at Kilimani following the alleged shooting incident at the B Club located along Galana Road within Kilimani.
On January 27, 2020, the legislator was granted a cash bail of Ksh10 million in the attempted murder case, which he was asked to pay in four installments over a four-month period.
The lawmaker was later released after managing to pay the installments.
Justice Francis Andayi directed that the paid bail be used to cater for the treatment of DJ Evolve.
