Babu Owino is not a bad person — DJ Evolve’s father says

By Vincent Kejitan | July 3rd 2020

John Orinda, the father of Felix Orinda aka DJ Evolve has revealed that Embakasi East MP Babu Owino is not a bad person as he is being portrayed since he has been footing his son’s medical bills since he was discharged from hospital.

Through a video that was widely shared on social media, Mr Orinda said there are nurses who attend to his son day and night and Babu is the one who pays them.

"My name is John Orinda from Kendu Bay in Homa Bay County. I am the father to Felix Orinda or DJ Evolve. Since he was discharged he has really improved and we are praying that he gets better soon.

"We have nurses who are attending to him day and night and it is the MP who facilitates them. So mimi naweza sema sio mtu mbaya sana vile watu wanafikiria (therefore I cannot say he's as bad a man as is being portrayed)," he said.

Orinda further appealed to the public to stop bothering his son since the events of that fateful day still traumatize him.

He also asked the lawmaker to continue supporting DJ Evolve since he does not have the financial muscle to cater to his bills.

“For now all we want is to pray for my son to walk even if not now but someday he will.

"The MP should also continue supporting us because we don't have the financial muscle to cater for my son's bills,” he said.

Adding: "I also appeal to the members of the public and especially the media to stop bothering him because it will traumatise him more."

This comes just a day after Babu’s lawyers asked Nation Media Group to issue an apology over a piece that was aired on TV.

They claimed the story done by NTV was used to convict the MP in the eyes of the public.
