Embattled Embakasi East MP Babu Owino has shifted the blame for the piling medical bills for DJ Evolve to the Judiciary.
Babu who is facing charges of attempted murder of the DJ says while the bill has piled up to Ksh. 6.9 Million, no one should point an accusatory finger on him since he has done his part.
Through a statement by his lawyer Dancun Okatch, Babu stated that he has so far paid a total of Ksh. 5 Million to the courts as ordered.
The MP also defended himself further saying that before the Ksh. 5 Million, he had already paid Ksh. 600,000 to go to DJ Evolve’s treatment.
“Unfortunately the court order indicated that these monies were to be paid directly to the Honourable Courts which would then release the funds, on a monthly basis, to Nairobi Hospital where the victim is hospitalized,” read the statement.
Babu further noted that DJ Evolve is recuperating well and that he is currently in a stable condition.
Chief Magistrate Francis Andayi had released Babu on a Ksh. 10 Million Bail. During the release Andayi stated that the money from Babu will be used to pay for DJ Evolve’s treatment at the Nairobi Hospital.
“This essentially means that our client has no control of the funds once he has deposited the same in court. It is instructive to note that our client voluntarily, and without coercion or court orders, paid an initial sum of Ksh.600,000 and has openly undertaken to cater fully for the medical expenses of the victim until the victim fully recovers,” further read the statement.
