Speaking to Standard Digital, Mr John Orinda denied the allegations saying he is a Christian man who wouldn’t accept any bribe; but having sat down and discussed a more thoughtful settlement – he opted to accept the help offered by Owino and his team. He said;


I hear some people claiming that I exchanged my son’s case for money. What do people take me for? A callous man who would sell his son’s welfare the way a farmer would sell his goat at the market? I am a Christian, and my conscience wouldn’t allow me to do that.

There is hope at the end of the tunnel after a Nairobi court this morning ordered the DPP, DCI and the media to stay away from interfering with the pending DJ Evolve-Babu Owino case that has been a matter of public interest.

On this note, Wednesday, July 8, the court forbade the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP), Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) and the media from engaging in talks regards the Babu Owino-DJ Evolve case.

Further stating that come August 11, the matter will be mentioned to establish whether DJ Evolve has since been in a position to record a statement.

Babu Owino demands immediate apology from NMG over viral DJ Evolve interview (Details)

Nation Media Group is now having it rough after Embakasi East MP, Babu Owino took legal action against them for their explosive DJ Evolve interview that since went viral.

In a letter seen by Ghafla, addressed to NMG from Babu’s lawyers, Okatch & Partners Advocates, their client considered the exclusive news story as defamatory and ill-founded.

An exclusive news story that headlined: “DJ Evolve speaks of life after being shot by Babu Owino.”


According to the MP’s lawyers, there was no one point that the DJ, Felix Orinda stated that he was shot by their client.

In fact, even before your news item, the said Felix Orinda has never ever stated in any forum whatsoever that he was shot by our client.

DJ Evolve (left) and MP Babu Owino (right)

NTV’s story therefore gave the lawyers the impression that they were out to “attack, accuse, persecute, reprimand, convict their client in the eyes of the public.”

Further stating that the station had seemingly told the public that Babu took plea on the two charges leveled against him, while it is instead, actually an ongoing case.

Your story as introduced and aired, thus directly infringes on our client’s constitutional rights to a fair hearing and tried to render the process of hearing irrelevant as you have (without any mandate whatsoever) already prosecuted, convicted and reprimanded our client.

The alleged CCTV footage you also aired in the story has not been admitted as evidence by a Court of Law to allow you to rely on it in your malicious story in the manner you so did.

A story that was also published in the Nation newspaper’s front page on July 1, titled: “As victim waits for justice, his life goes on.”

Also read: Babu Owino risks impeachment as city lawyer takes up case against DJ Evolve


To this effect, Babu Owino, born Paul Ongili’s lawyers stated “if  we do not hear from you within Two (2) days from the date of this letter, we have strict and peremptory instructions to institute legal proceedings against you for slanderous and libellous defamation.”

Babu Owino

The letter went ahead to indicate that this was not the first time the media house had tried to turn the public against the legislator. Therefore painting the picture that NMG was out to completely destroy Babu’s political career.

The letter’s demands in part, were that: “an appropriate apology addressing their exclusive story be published and broadcast on their platforms, while admitting liability for the slanderous libellous statements after which damages incurred will be addressed.”

Why DJ Evolve’s case might take time before getting justice

Tuesday, June 30, Kenyans came out in huge numbers, protesting against the injustice by Embakasi East MP, Babu Owino on recuperating Disk Jockey Evolve, born Felix Orinda.

This was occasioned by an interview of the entertainer, bed-ridden with his lower torso paralyzed, by NTV that since went viral and left Kenyans disgusted by the inefficient Law.

However, soon as public protests and signing of an online petition kicked off, the Office of the Directorate of Public Prosecutions (ODPP) announced that Evolve’s case was not going to go anywhere, at least not now.

According to the National Prosecuting Authority, “prosecution of Babu Owino had been slowed down by DJ Evolve’s inability to record a statement”.

According to the IO report, the victim is paralyzed and has a speech impediment making it very challenging to record his statement.

Further stating that an investigating officer had since followed up on the case after the entertainer’s heartbreaking story but unfortunately found him in a bad state.

However, the office was quick to indicate that it had tried its best in opposing the kind of judgement that had been passed on the controversial parliamentarian. But never succeeded in doing so.

Adding that the matter had been set for mention on March 20, but got interrupted by the Covid-19 government measures regarding court operations.

He promised to draft a petition for the ousting of Babu Owino but only if he is able to garner impeachment votes from 30% of Embakasi East constituent and 15% from any other Kenyans outside the constituency.

Anyone here who is registered voter in Embaskasi East? I am willing to draft a petition for the removal of Babu Owino as MP as per Article 104 & the Elections Act. I’m sure we can mobilize the required 30% ( in constituency) and 15% (in ward)

Babu Owino speaks about his friendship with Evolve

Speaking to Jalang’o just recently, Babu Owino owned up to his mistakes saying there is no saint without a past. He went on to admit his mistake; however since the matter is already in court then fans can wait for the final ruling.

Babu Owino

 We are in communication. And what I must say is that there is no saint without a past. Two, I would not like to dwell on my past so much, because I can’t change my past, but I can change my future. Every other thing that happened is between me and God, and I choose to forgive myself. This matter is before a Court of law, so as Babu Owino on Humanitarian or morals grounds, I did agree to settle the bill, so I settled the bills just as a friend.

As for those who didn’t know, turns out Babu and Evolve are actually good friends. But just like everyone else, they also have their issues to deal with.

He is a very good friend of mine and no man or woman should come between us. Everybody has their issues, and no man is righteous before God. Let no man, let no woman judge me, I will not take it lightly,”

The lass who has been maintaining a low profile for a while now reposted DJ Evolves story; which had been by done by a popular news house to which she went on to say:

“I say this from the deepest part of my soul, F*** BABU OWINO!”

Well having heard how hard it has been for DJ Evolves parents, it’s only fair to understand why Wangechi acted this way.

Babu Owino hits back

Responding to Wangechi’s tweet, Babu Owino as usual couldn’t resist the temptation of hitting back as he responded saying:

The said story was not accurate and truthful – Babu Owino´s lawyers respond to DJ Evolve´s ballooning hospital bill


Word has it that the hospital bill amounted to 6.7 million since Ksh 1.66M is the doctors fees, Ksh 1.3M in pharmacy charges, Ksh 913, 683 nursing fee and Ksh 990,000 for the ICU room; and lastly a physiotherapy charge of 494,100 among other charges.

This comes after Babu Owino defended himself saying that he had not abandoned DJ Evolve! According to Babu, he has been making his bail payments to the court who should be asked about the money. He went on to say;

“Unfortunately, the court orders indicated that these monies were to be paid directly to the honourable courts which would then facilitate the release of funds, on a monthly basis to Nairobi Hospital where the victim is hospitalized. This essentially means that our client has no control of the funds once he has deposited the same from the courts”

DJ Evolve

The DJ is however receiving treatment at the Nairobi hospital. From the stories making rounds online is that Evolve is currently at the ICU fighting for his life as his family awaits for him to wake up.

Anyway, Babu Owino has already issued an official statement – where he did not apologize for the act; but went on to claim that his life was in danger at the time the he opened fire.

Babu Owino

A few weeks ago, I made a public statement regarding threats that I had been receiving against my life. At the turn of the year, I reported an attempted assassination at the Parliament Police Station under OB number OB21/17/11/2019 at 17:28hrs. I have been living under the weight of intimidation and threats by my political opponents.

Yesterday was the culmination of these efforts by my enemies. While enjoying the company of my friends at a popular Nairobi restuarant, I was surrounded by a large group of aggressive individuals. In the melee, there was an exchange of gunfire.

I invite the relevant authorities to conduct their investigations without fear or favor and I remain confident that the truth will come out.

I urge my supporters to remain calm. I will continue to serve wananchi fearlessly. This will not deter me from supporting H. E Uhuru Kenyatta and H. E Raila Odinga in the journey to transform our country.

Comrade Babu Owino,
MP, Embakasi East and Leader, Youth For Africa Movement.
