Speaking to the press on Wednesday, Babu Owino said he has resorted to camping inside Parliament as he fears police officers are waiting to apprehend him outside the buildings.

Owino decried the arbitrary arrest of leaders saying that he is still innocent until proved guilty by a court of law.

An arrest warrant issued earlier on Monday against the MP was lifted after he presented himself to court alongside his bodyguard.

Senior principal magistrate Martha Mutugi had issued the warrant in the case where the two are charged with assaulting a guard.

They told the court they could not appear in the morning as they were attending to another court case in Kibera.

The legislator was arrested on January 20 for allegedly assaulting the parking attendant at Fortis Plaza in Westlands, Nairobi. The duo was also charged for using abusive language and creating a disturbance.
