Embakasi East Member of Parliament Paul Ongili alias Babu Owino has received an early endorsement for presidency come 2022.
In a video shared by the youthful MP, a man identifying himself as Dexter Rose says as a business executive in the Americas reveals that Owino’s name is being heard by thousands of people in the abroad.
The man narrates that the entire region is routing for a Babu Owino Presidency as he has taken Kenyan politics to “the next level.”
“Thank you so much Mr Owino Babu, can’t wait to see you, President,” he concludes.
I’m not contesting for president in 2022 but I want to thank this gentleman for having trust in me and for sure I will never disappoint Americans by working for my people and by being the President in the foreseeable future. pic.twitter.com/F0D65JaTUJ

The message comes just two weeks after Owino sensationally claimed that his life was in danger.
The first-time MP claimed that his brand of politics had apparently rubbed some people the wrong way and that a saloon car with four occupants has been trailing him for months.
After recording a statement on the 17th of November, Mr Owino would confidently state in a Facebook post that he does not fear death and that he would continue speaking his mind regardless.
Babu Owino rose to the national limelight after successive stints as the de facto student leader at the University of Nairobi.
It is from campus politics where he would get his feet wet before vying audaciously for the Embakasi East parliamentary seat.
Babu Owino has denied, however, any interests in running for President in 2022.
