Embakasi East MP Hon Babu Owino who is being charged with attempted murder of a DJ narrates how an Officer in charge of the Remand Prison called him into his office and repeatedly touched him in an inappropriate manner. Before things could go any further he ran out.
“Authorities and fellow inmates are baying for sexual favours from me and I have nowhere to run to. Many men in prisons choose to keep their experiences of sexual harassment or abuse secret for fear of facing it rough from authorities. I reported this severally with the help of my family on the day the abuse happened but nobody seems to care” an emotional Babu told the press.
Babu now demands to be provided with a safe environment to recall his traumatic experiences.
Before chief magistrate Francis Andayi, Babu had denied all the charges preferred against him.
He is represented by lawyers Dunstan Omari, Cliff Ombeta and five others.
The prosecution opposed his release on bail or bond as he is likely to interfere with witnesses.
