Details of DJ Evolve's third surgery and the growing family fears

Piece by: Grace Kerongo

DJ Evolve - real name Felix Orinda - is recovering well after his third surgery.

DJ Shock who has been keeping in touch with the family, revealed that DJ Evolve is keeping well.

"He is still recovering but only his mother is allowed to be close to him, other visitors wave from the outside of the glass. This was after his third surgery so that the wound can heal as quickly as possible, his mother has to wear a mask and apron when she enters his ward."


"Not to do with Covid-19; this was the protocol even before it was in the country."

DJ Shock continued,

"Yes, the nurses clean the wound every 5 days, as he now has movement in his arms, eventually his legs will respond as well. I believe too he will make a full recovery."

However, despite this good news, the family is wary of the growing hospital bill.

Early this month a High Court judge, Judge Luka Kimaru, in his ruling stated that the order to pay the bill could only be issued by a civil court and not a criminal court.

"The accused person should continue paying the hospital bill as a moral duty to him, not as a court order. If he fails to pay, it is up to him and his God," he ruled.

The family has reservations however if Embakasi MP Babu Owino will help them settle the hospital bill that keeps skyrocketing. Already it is almost hitting the Ksh13 million mark.

Babu Owino shot DJ Evolve on the neck on Thursday, January 16 at B Club on Galana Road, Kilimani.

The case is ongoing.
