Babu Owino’s jokes on apology backfires, speaker asks him to apologise again


Embakasi East Member of Parliament Babu Owino and his Starehe counterpart Charles ‘Jaguar’ Kanyi were admitted back to the Chambers after they apologised for their fight on Parliament precincts in October 2017.

The two MPs were kicked out of the chambers by Deputy Speaker Moses Cheboi.

Babu however was forced to repeat his apology three times by the speaker after he added jokes into his apology.

“I would like to say that Mr, Speaker on that day, i did not slap honourable Jaguar, but it is his cheeks that moved towards my hands and i am ready to apologise,” he said.

The National Assembly’s Committee of Power and Privileges on Tuesday reprimanded the two for conducting themselves in a manner that reflected adversely on the dignity and integrity of the House.

The two legislators traded blows within Parliament on October 10, 2017 after Owino referred to President Uhuru Kenyatta as a leader in charge of a caretaker government, whose reign “will end soon.”

After the dramatic incident, a shouting match ensued with Owino insisting that he would not recognise President Kenyatta’s legitimacy.

They were also ordered to deposit signed their apology sheets with the clerks.
