Sifuna Castigated For Defending Babu Owino In DJ Evolve’s Shooting


Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) Secretary-General Edwin Sifuna has received his fair share of criticism after defending Embakasi East MP Babu Owino in DJ Evolve shooting.

Earlier, Kahawa Tungu had reported that DJ Evolve was seeking to drop the charges leveled against Babu Owino in the attempted murder case.

Taking to Twitter, Sifuna endorsed the move while at the same time taking a jibe at people who were against it.

He wrote, “The actual person who was actually hurt has spoken and said he doesn’t wish to press charges. But the Twitter DJ Evolve manufactured by the outrage industrial complex will have none of it. Who shot you?

This has not been taken well by the majority of social media users who want the SG to go back on his words.

Through his lawyer, Kenneth Mumbo, the disk jockey stated that after deliberations with his family, they had chosen to concentrate on his health rather than the case.

The prosecution, however, wanted to ascertain the reasons behind the withdrawal of the case that is of public interest. They also want to assess DJ Evolve’s mental health status before reaching any decision.

The office of the DPP sought at least a month before dropping the case that has attracted a lot of attention in the last eight months.

Senior principal magistrate Benard Ochoi granted the DPP time sought and instructed them to appear in court on November 9, 2020 for mention.

In his ruling, magistrate Ochoi said he has seen the letter from Evolve to the DPP seeking to withdraw the case.

The court also acknowledged hearing from the bedridden disk jockey though his voice was not clear due to the tube in his throat. The letter had a thumbprint from Evolve.

He was allegedly shot in the neck by the lawmaker rendering him disabled from the neck down.
