Babu Owino has sent shock waves across the country with his action after he was announced the winner in ODM nominations for Embakasi East constituency.
The controversial former SONU chairman cruised to victory after he garnered 6,093 votes beating his closest rival with a very big margin.
After his victory, Babu was heard saying he was to win ODM ticket for Embakasi East constituency either way – by ballot or bullet.
“Mimi ndo mjumbe wa Embakasi East, nlisema ata kwa Facebook mimi ndo mjumbe wa Embakasi East by bullet or ballot. That’s how it is and it is what it is,” Babu Owino said in an audio recorded by Nairobi News.
The fierce Nairobi University alumnus also attacked GSU after his win, he said the paramilitary unit was sent to Embakasi East in 120 lorries. Babu stated that he wasn’t scared of GSU and that he would have dealt with them if they had incited the electorates.
“Area yangu walileta GSU lorry mia moja na ishirini, lakini nliwaambia kama ni voters wakuje wakae lakini kama wanakuja kuleta uchochezi pia wangetumeet with equal measures because GSU si hatutambui GSU, tunatambua Wanaembakasi East ambao wanatupigia kura ambao wanatuamini. Sisi GSU ni kama mikebe ya blue band, sisi hatuwaogopi ata kidogo,” said Babu Owino.
