Lawyer's argument

Babu's lawyer, Cliff Ombetta argued that the MP should be given bail since he had taken the victim to hospital.

The accused person is the one that took the victim to hospital. He has gone ahead and paid Ksh600,000 from his pocket to Nairobi Hospital for his treatment,” Ombeta said.

He is a family man, he cooperated with police in every step and is a Member of Parliament who has to go back to work,” he added.
