Babu Owino records statement with police over alleged assassination attempt
- According to the vocal MP, a saloon vehicle with four occupants has consistently trailed him day and night over the past few months.
Embakasi East Member of Parliament Babu Owino has recorded a statement at Parliament Police Station claiming unknown individuals attempted to assassinate him on Saturday.
According to the vocal MP, a saloon vehicle with four occupants has consistently trailed him day and night over the past few months.
“Over the past couple of months, I have been on the receiving end of hateful abuse and indeed threats against my life for my outspoken brand of politics,” he said.
“I am known for speaking out in defense of ordinary people without fear or favor. This seems to be rubbing some people in high places the wrong way. Regardless, I have done my duty to the people fearlessly and will continue to do so until the Lord calls me home.”
Mr. Owino now wants Inspector General of Police Hillary Mutyambai to expedite probe into the alleged assassination attempt and bring the suspects to book.
He added: “In closing, I will not stop. I shall not stop. Death comes to us all and I know mine will eventually come. I am not afraid of dying for my beliefs and in service to my people. Tialala!”
