(KDRTV) – Embakasi East MP Babu Owino has paid at least Ksh 600,000 for the treatment of DJ Evolve.
The DJ is fighting for his life at the Nairobi Hospital after being shot in the neck by a person believed to be Babu Owino.
Babu’s lawyer Cliff Ombeta had told journalists that the MP was taking care of the DJ’s medical bills.
Reports indicate that that DJ Evolve, whose real name is Felix Orinda underwent a successful surgery to remove the bullet on Friday evening.
The MP is believed to have shot the little known DJ at B Club in Nairobi’s upmarket Kilimani Estate.
Babu released a statement claiming that the shooting incident was a result of an attempt on his life.
However, CCTV footage show that the MP fired a shot without being provoked. He then went ahead to rush his victim to the hospital where he was arrested.
