Mary who dies aged 54 has been nursing (including movement, eating and washing) her son Evolve who was allegedly shot by Embakasi East MP Babu Owino on January 17, 2019 at Nairobi’s B-Club.
“Since January 17, everything stopped on my side because I couldn’t do anything and my child is in this condition,” the late told the press in an interview in 2020.
The Embakasi legislator however claimed that the shooting was a protective measure as he had been surrounded by a group of people leading to fear over his life and consequently unleashing the firearm.
The case is however still in court as DJ Evolve continues to battle for a return to normalcy as was before the fateful night.
