DPP Haji takes action after DJ Evolve’s heartbreaking story

Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Noordin Hajji has swung into action after NTV aired a heartbreaking story on DJ Evolve. The feature, which was on the 29th of June 2020, sparked social media with Kenyans, further brewing a fresh online war with Babu Owino.

Babu shot the DJ in January 2020, leaving him severely injured. Evolve was in the Nairobi Hospital since then, with the bill totaling to 17 million. However, the controversial MP promised to settle the medical bills incurred.

Following this feature story, DPP Hajji urged the judiciary to prioritize DJ Evolve’s case. He acknowledged that the coronavirus pandemic has slowed down the judiciary processes and, in the process slowing down justice for DJ Evolve.

Evolve could not record a statement without being able to speak.

According to the DPP, the case was also dragging because the DJ was not in a stable condition. Evolve could not record a statement seeing the shooting affected his voice.

“Prosecution of Embakasi MP Paul Ongili Babu Owino over the attempted murder of DJ Evolve has been slowed down by the inability of the victim to record a statement following the shooting which affected his speech.”

Adding,

“According to the IO report, the victim is paralyzed and has a speech impediment making it very challenging to record his statement.”

However, netizens felt that the judiciary needed to do more than what it is doing. Among them was Martha Karua, who urged the DPP to record Evolve’s statement since he can now speak.

“Time to speed up #DJEvolveSpeaks can be assisted to record his statement now,” the former Gichugu MP tweeted.

Although DJ Evolve is recovering, he can not move his fingers or do anything for himself. His mother expressed her sadness at her son’s condition, praying that the judiciary is just during the ruling.

Babu Owino is currently out on bail.
