Babu Owino's first tweet after his election was upheld

Big win for Babu

Minutes after the ruling, Owino thanked God and dedicated the win to his constituents.

“TO GOD BE THE GLORY... THE PEOPLE OF EMBAKASI EAST HAVE WON”

In March, High Court’s Justice Joseph Sergon nullified his election citing massive electoral malpractices.Addressing his supporters, Owino said it is time to serve his electorates as he reaffirmed his trust in the Judicial processes of the country

“I would like to tell my opponents to wake up and move on. I also invite them to come and help me serve the people of Embakasi. There is a time to lead and a time to be led. My opponents should respect those in power now so that when their time comes they can be respected too,” he said.

“Nyinyi wenyewe mtaamua itakapofika 2022. Mlichagua kiongozi bora. Nitawafanyia kazi. Hata ile pesa shilingi milioni nne nimepewa na mahakama leo itaenda kwa bursary ya Embakasi East,” he told a crowd outside the Supreme Court buildings which houses the Appellate Court
