Felix Orinda alias DJ Evolve has been discharged from the Nairobi Hospital where he was admitted after getting shot by Embakasi East MP Babu Owino.
The disc jockey was released from the facility on June 17, over five months after the shooting incident at Nairobi’s B-Club.
In a video shared on Twitter, Dj Evolve is seen strapped onto a collapsible wheeled stretcher inside an ambulance.
Another angle shows Evolve wearing a face mask with a white bandage wrapped on his head. In the background, a voice is heard instructing a man in the video to lower the face mask to allow for him to breathe properly.
After several surgeries,he is set to continue his recovery from home as he has not yet regained the use of his legs.
“His upper body is okay, his hands can move, he can talk but he has a pipe in the oesophagus to pass out mucus. So he can’t talk when it’s inside. His legs are still unresponsive,” DJ Evolve’s father recently told Mpasho.
Babu Owino said that the DJ had been discharged at an earlier date but remained at the facility as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
“DJ Evolve has been discharged from the hospital, he is just waiting to be taken home. The reason why he has not been taken home is because of the coronavirus situation,” he toldJalang’o in late April.
After months of silence on the incident that attracted the furore of Kenyans, the controversial legislator said he was in communication with Dj Evolve’s family and that he’d forgiven himself.
“There is no saint without a past…I would not like to dwell on my past so much because I can’t change my past but I can change my future. Then every other thing that happened is between me and God and I chose to forgive myself.”
The legislator also said that he opted to settle the hospital bill “as a friend.”
A 2016 photo of Babu and Evolve at the club proves they’ve known each other for a couple of years.
