Remove me from the furnace.

Addressing fellow MPs in parliament, Owino Pleaded with Kenyatta to intervene after his election was annulled by Justice Joseph Sergon.The legislator reminded the Head of State that they were now on the same page after the deal with NASA leader Raila Odinga on Friday last week.

"As Babu Owino, just like stories in the Bible about Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, who were put in a furnace to burn to death for failing to obey the king, but came out of the furnace stronger."I would like to tell the president, Uhuru Kenyatta, that he has put Babu Owino in fire, and he has burned and he is strong. I do not want to be stronger than this, let him remove me from the fire," he stated.Babu Owino's win nullified by the High court Despite Owino winning the vote recount, Justice Sergon ruled that the election was marred by errors and malpractices hence the reason for cancellation.

He went ahead and directed the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) to conduct a by-election in accordance with the law.However, the former SONU leader has appealed the court's decision.Uhuru and Raila strike deal to work together Meanhwile, Kenyatta and Odinga agreed to work together for the sake of uniting the country.
