Babu was today arraigned at Milimani Law Courts where he pleaded not guilty to attempted murder charges.
Chief Magistrate Francis Andayi ordered Babu be remanded for seven days so that they can prepare a bail report.
The legislator’s lawyer Cliff Ombeta opposed the prosecution’s plea to have Babu detained on grounds that he will interfere with witnesses.
According to a CCTV footage released by a local TV station, a man believed to be Babu Owino is seen smoking Sheesha before a man believed to Oridna approaches him.
The man believed to be Babu then draws his pistol and fires at the DJ.
The man shot is seen being dragged out by two other revellers.
It was reported that the MP rushed Orinda to the Nairobi Hospital where he underwent a surgery to remove a bullet lodged in his neck.
According to his close friends, the DJ is recuperating well.
