Murefu @Kimutu_Kikubwa “#justicefordjevolve (dis)Hon Babu Owino took aim and shot DJ Evolve in a cool and intentional decision. Cool and calculated. Then he used his money to pay his medical bills, and used his influence to stay out of jail on the softest bail terms in Kenya”.
RAW ❁@_Rawson7 “As Kenyans are busy currently asking #JusticeForGeorgeFloyd I wonder where we'll get with #justicefordjevolve. A Politician just shot a Dj at point blank and still has his job and busy teaching our children in YouTube. HUMANS DISGUST ME”
OTC @timothyodera “Babu shot dj evolve but the dj did not die. The likes of msando, kenei and many others were murdered and nobody remembers that. Fuck you all. I stand with babu owino #justicefordjevolve”
