The Embakasi East Member of Parliament Babu Owino has disclosed to the court that he has spent Ksh58.6 million in taking care of Felix Orinda famously known as DJ Evolve.
Speaking at the Milimani Law courts, the Mp told senior principal magistrate Bernard Ochoi that if he did not take initiative the DJ could have died.
He was defending himself on Thursday after the court found he had a case to answer for misusing a firearm that shot DJ Evolve at B Club in 2020.
“I took charge of the life-saving initiative and endeavors of Felix Orinda as a leader. And that would be inconsistent with a person who intended to harm,” Owino told the court.
Babu further told the court that he had bought a Ksh.17 million apartment for the DJ in Kilimani, where he currently resides.
Similarly, the court heard that the MP has plans of taking DJ Evolve for further treatment and opening a DJ academy business for him.
“The family was not able to take care of him and as a leader I continued paying the medical bills. Total bills accumulated to Ksh.23 million. He was immobile and could not move. I bought an apartment at Kilimani at around Ksh.17 million and hired two nurses, 2 physiotherapists 1 occupational therapists which up to date am paying Ksh.300,000 per month,” Babu said.
“I have paid Ksh.11.1million and its still going on for 37months. I take care of his upkeep of Ksh. 70,000 per month to pay bills and food. Medicine is Ksh.80,000 per month. I have paid Ksh.5.5 million for 37 months.” He added.
Babu finally defended himself saying his gun was jammed and there is no way it could have fired the bullet.
“The gun could not shoot. The bullet could have come from another firearm,” he defended himself.
