Lawyer Miguna Miguna has weighed in on the acquittal of Embakasi East MP Babu Owino from an attempted murder case pitting him and deejay Felix Orinda, alias Dj Evolve.
In a tweet, Miguna expressed his dissatisfaction with the development saying the MP’s case has set a bad precedent in the quest for justice against the powerful in society.
According to Miguna, Babu Owino’s case has opened the stage for the powerful in society to commit an offence with an assurance that they can buy their way out.
“You are free to shoot, maim and kill any Kenyan with no wealth and power. It’s a free season. But 99% of exploited, degraded, and abused Kenyans can and must put a stop to the institutionalized criminality by the MAFIA,” Miguna remarked.
On Tuesday, December 14, Magistrate Bernard Ochoi allowed Dj Evolve to withdraw the attempted murder case after he said he wanted to concentrate on his healing.
The DJ filed the withdrawal petition in a sworn affidavit that was backed by his father and late mother through their lawyer Kenneth Mumbo.
The parents acknowledged that a great friendship had developed between the two, Dj Evolve and Babu Owino, further revealing that the legislator had kept contact on the matter.
Babu Owino is, however, not off the hook completely as he faces a second count of misbehaving disorderly in public while carrying ammunition.
