Embakasi MP Babu Owino can breathe a sigh of relief after the High Court reduced his bond terms from the the current Ksh. 10 Million to Ksh. 5 Million in the attempted murder case.
Justice Luka Kimaru ruled that Babu who is being accused of shooting DJ Evolve at a popular club in Kilimani, Nairobi will now have to pay DJ Evolve’s medical bills as a moral obligation.
Justice Kimaru further stated that State Prosecutors had failed to offer any compelling reason on why bond terms should not be reviewed.
Justice Francis Andayi in had released Babu on a Ksh. 10 Million which he was to pay in four monthly installments of Ksh. 2.5 Million per month.
Andayi stated that part of the bail was to cater for DJ Evolve’s medical bill at the Nairobi Hospital.
Babu shot the DJ on the neck and he has had to undergo several surgeries to stabilize his condition.
As of last week, the DJ’s medical bill had gone up to over Ksh. 6 Million.
