Embakasi East Member of Parliament Babu Owino took to social media to describe an attempt made on his life.
The young outspoken politician described a brief incident of suspected hitmen who were following him around, adding that he had received death threats from unknown individuals.
“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.” he said.
“In recent weeks, this vitriol has been getting increasingly worse and over the last few days, I can report that I am a targeted man. I have been consistently followed during the day and at night by a saloon vehicle that I now know with four occupants. Yesterday, these men made an attempt on my life!”
He, however, added that he had contacted the police and recorded a statement over the issue.
” I have reported this attempt today at Parliament Police Station under OB21/17/11/2019.I call upon the Inspector General of Police to immediately launch investigations into this issue and bring those behind these assassination attempts to book. ” concluded Babu Owino.
