Embakasi East Member of Parliament Paul Ongili alias Babu Owino will spend seven more days at the Industrial Area remand prison after the court denied him bail on Monday.
The court on Monday ordered that a probation bail report be filed by the probation department within seven days before Owinos application for bail is determined.
According to Chief Magistrate Francis Andayi, the views of the victim, Felix Orinda Odhiambo, on whether the lawmaker should be granted bail or not have not been mentioned.
In all that submission there have been no mention of the views from the victim as required under the Victim’s Act. The court is of the view that given the gravity of the charges, the victims views have to be taken to account,”Andayi said.
Babu Owino was charged with attempted murder but pleaded not guilty to shooting Felix Orinda alias DJ Evolve at B-Club located along Galana Road in Nairobi last week.
