Babu Owino Arrested and Charged: Is He in Jail or Jail Now?
A video alleging that Babu Owino, the Member of Parliament representing Embakasi East, was detained at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport on Wednesday is fake. The video quickly became popular on social media as news of the MP’s prison sentence spread. Citizen Digital, on the other hand, admitted that the video was recorded on September 27, 2017. Babu Owino was charged with subversion, provocative behavior and another charge of inciting violence at the Milimani courts. On the same day that Baba Owin was acquitted by the Nairobi Magistrates’ Court, the police re-arrested him.
Then, according to the police, Babu was re-arrested in connection with an assault charge he had previously committed while contesting for the President of the Students’ Organization of the University of Nairobi (SONU). However, the MP announced on his Facebook page on Wednesday morning that he had been arrested. “DCI JKIA arrested me after I arrived from Mombasa.” “I am currently in custody,” he wrote. Citizen Digital then called the representative for comment, however a call to his phone was unsuccessful. The alleged closure is linked to upcoming anti-government protests organized by the group Azimio la Umoja.
Babu Owino was charged with hate speech and assault
In September 2021, Owino was accused of harassing journalists and making threatening phone calls and text messages. Owino was imprisoned in September 2017 for insulting Kenyan President Uhuru Muigai Kenyatta, numerous Kenyan media agencies reported. Many Kenyan political heavyweights have demanded that he face severe legal consequences for violating his right to freedom of expression by uttering apparently derogatory words against the president.
He was arrested and charged for using hate speech in Nairobi. Owino is accused of assaulting a number of Kenyans, including fellow politicians, car park guards, night watchmen and others. In some circumstances, the media broadcast footage of him publicly and brutally dealing with everyone who disagrees with him in everything. Owino was arrested and charged with assault and grievous bodily harm to a voter in September 2017. Owino was arrested in January 2018 for allegedly assaulting a parking attendant in Westlands, Nairobi, along with one of his workers over a dispute over unpaid parking. Despite the video showing the attack on the parking lots, Owino denied the claims. In November 2018, Owino and Starehe Jaguar Constituency MP had a fight in Parliament over opposing political ideas.
