We are letting him rest for a while until the doctors remove the pipe. when his breathing returns to normal we will talk with him..the bullet passed over here touching the spinal cord a little bit whereby doctors say he will need another operation, he might be taken for it on Tuesday”.)

It has not been confirmed what led to the shooting.
City lawyer Cliff Ombetta has said that the incident of his client Embakasi East MP, Babu Owino shooting Club B’ in-house Deejay is regrettable.
“From What I am Getting a person whom he eventually realized is his friend approached him in away that a Babu was not expecting and so he reacted.
During that reaction is when eventually somebody was shot. So there was never an intention to commit an offence. And that is why he wants the matter to be investigated to the end,” narrated Ombeta.
