DJ Evolve through his lawyer Kenneth Mumbo, asked the case to be withdrawn. So that he can concentrate on his recovery. In the letter, the DJ indicated that the decision had been made by him and his family.
DJ Evolve also said that he just wants to continue receiving treatment. Since the case is giving him divided attention.
A couple of months back, Evolve’s mother speaking on NTV had said that all she wanted was justice for her son.
Babu Owino had already been charged with attempted murder. But denied shooting Evolve even though there was a CCTV footage.
The Embakasi East MP had later on expressed in other platforms that he and DJ Evolve are good friends.
However, the Director of Public Prosecutions told the court that they needed more time. So as to assess DJ Evolve’s mental status noting that he is not physically and mentally capable to give such instructions.
Since the decision was abrupt, the DPP needs to know what caused the decision to withdraw the matter. And the court allowed the request by the DPP to move forward with the case.
The DPP needs to engage the victim, the family of the victim and their lawyers to find out their motivation.
The magistrate declined the withdrawal and granted the DPP time to give directions on the matter once he is satisfied.
