A Directorate of Public Prosecutions (DPP) official has, in response to the concern over the slow progress in the attempted murder case against Embakasi East MP Babu Owino, said that “there is no need to rush things and risk losing out on the expected results”.
Senior Assistant Director of Public Prosecutions Alexander Muteti was reacting to the recent reports on the DJ Evolve shooting case.
Muteti, speaking this morning, 3rd July, in an phone interview with Musyi FM’s Onesmus Mwengei, said that DJ Evolve, whose real name is Felix Orinda, needs to recover so that he can record a statement for the case to begin. MP Babu Owino is alleged to have shot and seriously injured the disc jockey at B-Club in the Kilimani area of Nairobi in January.
“Sometimes, it’s good to understand these things. Since the victim is recovering and regaining his strength, it is okay to let him fully recover so that he may give his side of the story rather than rushing things,” he explained.
As the victim has been able to speak to the media, Muteti said the DPP office would now have him record a statement.
In such cases, he explained, it was always better to have the parties involved speak for themselves, except in special circumstances.
Kenyans have taken to social media questioning why the case against the MP is not progressing and demanded justice for the DJ, who was recently discharged from hospital after spending several months in the intensive care unit.
