Amani National Congress (ANC) Embakasi East MP aspirant in the 2017 General Election Joshua Otieno Obiende has dropped assault case against Babu Owino citing God’s intervention.
Obiende accused the legislator of assaulting him at a polling station and preventing him from exercising his civic duty of casting his vote.
But the former aspirant has forgiven Babu in the spirit of brotherhood.
“I have not been coerced. I have done this in the spirit of brotherhood. God directed me to forgive and if God forgives, who cannot forgive,” Obiende told Kibera Law Courts.
He further denied receiving any form of compensation, saying that God will reward his good deed.
“I am here to state that I have decided to forgive my brother Babu Owino. Whatever happened is now history,” he continued.
The Embakasi East lawmaker was in January accused of physically assaulting a Fortis Towers parking attendant.
Babu allegedly refused to pay the parking ticket and instead resorted to assaulting the attendant.
The case was later dropped.
