MP Babu Owino Bashed Online for Saying Raila Will Become President by "Ballot or Bullet"
Jan. 17, 2020
Embakasi East MP Babu Owino is under fire from Kenyans online over his tweet about ODM leader Raila Odinga’s presidential bid.
In a post on Twitter on Thursday night, Babu wrote that Raila will become Kenya’s president in 2022 by “ballot or bullet,” a tweet that did not augur well with social media users.
“This time Raila will be the President by ballot or bullet,” Babu tweeted.
Online users were not amused with Babu’s tweet and some called for his arrest over alleged incitement.
@TomOlango3 wondered: “Sometimes I don't understand you. Do you have mental problems?”
@MurigiKamaa said: “And then someone will ask why Raila has never been president. The answer is in this tweet. Jakom is a great leader but this kind of sentiments ultimately are a hindrance to his leading Kenya.”
@georgemarkyn tweeted: “I thought you had the potential to lead one day,,, but my four year old is more mature than you... a leader should not advocate, propagate or insinuate quarter the crap you feed us on your socials. your wife and everyone associated with you must be totally ashamed. Grow up dude!”
@JoyJebiwot stated: “You were elected to represent the youths now you are representing a 70year old babu.”
@KalosSays noted: “Same Rubbish! Said by the same Nimcoompoop! BYW, ulitengeneza Fedha Road ama ni bangi tu hapa Twitter?”
@Gideon_Kitheka said: “Ujinga ya hali ya njuu. Foolishness of the highest order.”
Babu was arrested on Friday morning for allegedly shooting a DJ at B-Club in Nairobi’s Kilimani area. Owino is said to have shot the man identified as Felix Orinda, aka DJ Evolve, on the neck after quarreling over reasons that are yet to be known, according to police.
He is currently being held at Kilimani Police Station pending investigations into the incident.
