Babu Owino arrested, taken to CID headquarters for calling Uhuru ‘mtoto wa mbwa’


Embakasi East MP Babu Owino has been arrested and taken to CID headquarters on Kiambu Road for remarks said to have been about the President.

During a rally in Kawangware’s Congo area on Sunday, the first-time MP tore into someone he referred to as mtoto wa mbwa.

He likened this person to long-term African leaders who were eventually removed from power.

Babu later said he would not apoologise and dared police to arrest him as referring to someone as a puppy doesn’t amount to abuse.

Earlier, Nairobi woman representative Esther passaris condemned the remarks as unfortunate and apologised to the first family.

She urged politicians to responsibly exercise their right to freedom of speech.
