Embakasi East MP Babu Owino is now off the hook after the court allowed the withdrawal of the attempted murder case against Felix Orinda alias DJ Evolve.
In his ruling, Milimani Law Courts magistrate Bernard Ochoi allowed the withdrawal noting that both the MP and DJ Evolve were friends before and after the January 16, 2020, incident.
However, the ruling has been received negatively with a majority of Kenyans online questioning the intent of the withdrawal and if it would serve the victim any justice.
According to critics, the case will set a dangerous precedent in the justice system in which powerful individuals could commit similar heinous acts and walk out Scott free because they can influence the victim to drop the charges.
By setting Babu Owino free, do you think justice has been served in Dj Evolve’s case? Do you think DJ Evolve was coerced to drop the charges?
