For the last six months life in the Orinda household has never been the same.
This is after Felix Orinda a.k.a DJ Evolve was shot in the neck at point blank range by Embakasi East MP Babu Owino.
He spent the bulk of those months on hospital receiving treatment.
He was recently discharged and is recuperating at home. A fact the the mother is not pleased about because she believes the son who is paralyzed from the waist down still needs medical attention.
In an exclusive interview with NTV’s Dan Mwangi on Monday June 29, 2020, DJ Evolve and the mother opened up about life after the shooting.
“On that fateful day (sigh). I am very emotional I do not want to talk about him. When I got the report that my son got an accident at his place of work, I was shocked and I felt everything has turned upside down. But I went to God and told him it has already happened but I pray he will stand by me and that he will save my son.” Evole’s mother emotionally spoke.
The mother – who requested anonymity – says she quit her job since DJ Evolve was shot to take care of him.
“Since the day of the incident, I quit my job to take care of my son. We have just been depending on well wishers for survival.” said Dj Evolve’s mother during the interview.
She however says she has never seen the legislator and would not wish to talk about the matter, for now.
“Due to the pain (in my heart), I cannot talk. I just talk to my God. My son’s life has been destroyed. (I hope to get) justice for my kid. Only that,” she says.
She also revealed that Babu Owino was able to pay the Ksh 7 million hospital bill as ordered by the court.
“Babu Owino paid the 7 million shillings bill as ordered by the courts. I did not ask for my son to be discharged as reported by several media houses. I am not a doctor and I do not know how someone could fake something like that,” she said.
The Embakasi East MP is facing attempted murder charges for shooting Evolve on January 17, but was released on a Sh10 million bail to be paid in instalments.
