Magistrate in Babu Owino’s attempted murder case steps down from hearing the case


Milimani Court Chief Magistrate Francis Andayi has disqualified himself from hearing Embakasi East MP Babu Owino’s attempted murder case.

The court directed that the matter be heard by magistrate Bernard Ochoi.

Andayi said that the DPP has written a complaint to the Judicial service Commission on the bail that he granted the legislator.

Babu is facing two charges – an unlawful attempt to cause the death of a Nairobi DJ Evolve and carrying a firearm while drunk and disorderly.

Babu was released on a cash bail of KSh.10M and was directed to pay in installments.

The case will be mentioned on March 2.
