Sakaja on the spot for supporting Babu Owino’s re-election

Nairobi senator Johnson Sakaja optimism that Babu Owino will win the Embakasi East MP seat again if the by-election was to be held even today ,has brewed a fresh storm between him and Jubilee supporters (comments below).

Speaking exclusively to a local daily on Friday, Senator Sakaja said that Babu Owino has the number to easily win the seat in the upcoming by-election.

“Believe you me, if a by-election is held in Embakasi East, then Babu Owino will win again. He will will with a bigger margin than he did in August 8,” Sakaja said.

The Nairobi senator was once slammed by Jubilee leaders, led by Gatundu south MP Moses Kuria and Kikuyu MP Kimani Ichung’wa, over claimed of being an Opposition sympathizer after he bailed out the controversial Embakasi east Lawmaker from police custody in January.

“Somebody went to get a small boy from the cells instead of helping the boy who has a long way to go to learn to respect the rule of law,” Kuria condemned.

Sakaja defended himself by arguing that Babu Owino is not only a leader in Nairobi but he is first a resident in Nairobi. Securing his release from prison was not an issue which should have been politicized.

Here are some reactions on social media over Sakaja’s remarks on the upcoming Embakasi East by-election;
