Embakasi East Member of National Assembly Babu Owino has been vocal on Kibra by-election that his latest mysterious absence could easily be felt.
Earlier on Sunday of November 3, 2019 he quickly posted how he is unwell to give a signal that he will be missing in the Mega Rally set in Kibra later in the afternoon.
The rally that was attended by bigwigs from the Kenya political scene, from diverse political parties, was not one to be missed, especially for Babu who referred to Kibra as Raila’s bedroom.
Is Babu really sick or he just found an easy way to snab the Kibra rally so as not to upset the man from Sugoi?
Those on the know say that the legislator had been bought by William Ruto so as not to campaign for Benard Otieno Okoth alias Imran of ODM party and to stop giving ultimutums to Mariga.
His insiders say that they were almost running out of option so ‘sickness’ became the best scapegoat they had to go for. Those on the know say, Babu is well and is suffering from no disease but just Sugoi’s goodies that he was given in excess so that he could stop bashing, abusing and humiliating DP Ruto in Kibra.
In a country where politicians have been bought by as low as Ksh10k, anything is possible.
Going by the way Babu and his bloggers have been MIA – Missing In Action- on Imran Okoth’s campaign initiatives for nearly two weeks now.
Late last week, Babu was busy with a non-issue; he and a few social media influencers were calling for the release of Jowie, the alleged Monica Kimani murderer, on bail ostensibly the agenda was to divert attention from Kibra by-election.
The Embakasi legislator sent a plethora of tweets in calling for the release of Jowie late last week while the party and all its supporters were campaigning for ODM’s candidate Benard Otieno Okoth.
This was after his attempts to sponsor memes of himself with President Uhuru Kenyatta, Raila Odinga and other senior politicians failed to pick up.
Babu, who wants to be the next Kenyan President missed yesterday’s Mega Rally in Kibra due to Ruto’s cash, oops! due to ‘sickness’.
