Kenyans continue to pray for the quick recovery of DJ Evolve as well as hoping justice will be served after he was shot by Embakasi MP, Babu Owino.
A source close to DJ Evolve revealed that he is now in stable condition, and can recognize people. It is great news that the humble deejay can even crack jokes in a hospital bed, the source added.
Just from seeing Dj Evolve, he’s in a stable condition, he was operated on last evening, he can talk and still recognizes people anaweza hata joke. Unfortunately, no cameras allowed in the hospital and one is not allowed to talk on the phone in the ward. He’s bound to have another operation on him on Monday.
The lower body can’t move. But hope akioperatiwa tena atarecover.
The injured Dj is receiving warm wishes, love and support. His peers have condemned the act expressing fear for their lives as well.
The DJ Fraternity sent out a statement to condemn Babu Owino’s attack saying,
As the Kenyan DJ fraternity, we strongly condemn the attack against one of our own, DJ Evolve that was meted out in a most brutal and despicable way by Embakasi South Member of Parliament Hon. Babu Owino while DJ Evolve was on duty. We refute any attempt to change the narrative to portray DJ Evolve as the aggressor, going by
the claims on Hon. Babu Owino’s social media pages. All who have interacted with DJ Evolve know him as a humble, hardworking and jovial individual, who was out there doing his best to make a living in these tough times we currently experience.
We as the DJ fraternity are concerned parties of this matter. We will keenly be following up on the proceedings and demand the Kenyan Government and the Office of the DCI ensure that Hon. Babu Owino faces the full force of the law. As per our constitution, attempted murder is a crime that has serious consequences that also include life imprisonment. The act carried out by Hon. Babu Owino is tantamount to attempted murder against an unarmed and innocent hardworking Kenyan by an ostentatious youth leader who casts shame on not only the current leadership but to all aspiring Kenyans at large.
To reiterate, we as the Kenyan DJ fraternity stand firmly with DJ Evolve and will offer his family all the support they need during this time. We also urge you as our fellow Kenyans to stand together with us in solidarity and support of DJ Evolve as well as in this fight to ensure that no Kenyan is above the law. Let our voices be heard!
In the same spirit, the Dj’s have organized a protest at parliament on Tuesday the 21st of January with the theme being, ‘No Guns In Our Club‘.
We here at Kiss100 wish DJ Evolve a quick recovery and we hope through it all, justice will prevail.
