Part of Bail to settle medical bills for the victim
Embakasi East MP Babu Owino has been granted a cash bail of Ksh.10 million with a unique unusual bail ruling
Chief Magistrate Francis Andayi directed that the Legislature must deposit Ksh.10 million in four installments of Ksh.2.5 million for the next four months, prohibited from indulging in any form of narcotics or alcohol and gagged from speaking about case.
The lawmaker will be released after paying the first installment of Ksh.2.5 million.
The Magistrate noted that the money will be used to settle the victim’s medical bill with the amount that remains unused serving as bail.
Earlier in the day Court adjourned prematurely as Rowdy Babu Owino supporters stormed courtroom demanding cash bail The victim’s family had opposed Babu Owino’s release, saying they are concerned about the security of their son and that of other family members due to political power and may use the same to subvert justice.
However, the magistrate noted that denying the accused bail will be tantamount to the accused person pulling out of taking care of the patient.
Babu Owino is charged with attempted murder and behaving disorderly while carrying a firearm at B Club where he shot and wounded DJ Evolve on January 17.
