Orange Democratic Movement party Secretary General Edwin Sifuna has stated that the party will expel one of their own, Embakasi East Member of Parliament Babu Owino if he is found guilty of the attempted murder case against B-Club’s DJ, Felix Orinda, popularly known as DJ Evolve.
While responding to criticism the party has received from Kenyans for seemingly protecting Babu Owino, Edwin Sifuna explained that the first-time MP was not walking free but was out on bail.
“He is not walking free. He has been charged and is out on bail. Our code of conduct is very clear. Once you are found guilty of a crime we will expel you from the Party. People look at his political party as if his politics is what informed his action,” he said in a radio interview.
He went on to explain that Kenyans were the same people who voted for the current President and Deputy President Uhuru Kenyatta and William Ruto despite the two facing high-profile cases at the International Criminal Court in Hague.
“We are the same people that defiled that and made sure it doesn’t matter what somebody is accused of. Your current President and Deputy, when they were elected, what were they facing,” Edwin Sifuna said.
Sifuna stated that some leaders felt no shame in holding office while facing various scandals adding that the national ethos had been forgotten.
“What is our national ethos? How is it that if someone misconducts themselves in their private lives, they feel the shame that they cannot hold public office and resign? We need to get there as a country,” he noted.
Since Babu Owino was reportedly captured shooting DJ Evolve twice in the neck, Kenyans have been calling for justice to be served for the spin master.
DJ Evolve was recently discharged from Nairobi Hospital after spending close to six months. After an emotional interview with NTV, Babu Owino threatened to sue the TV station if he did not get an apology.
