  • Popular ODM supporter 'Baba Chungwa' has been discharged from hospital after a month since he was run over by a car during anti-IEBC protests.
  • Nicholas was taken back to his humble home which has caught the attention of Kenyans, with many asking NASA leaders to move him to a better place.

Famous Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) supporter Nicholas Owino has been discharged from hospital after being there for a month.

Nicholas, popularly known as Baba Chungwa is a famous for attending political rallies in his ODM attire and a head ornament made of oranges.

He was first taken to Kenyatta hospital by Nairobi Women Representative Esther Passaris after being run over by a Prado on October 9 during anti-IEB demos among three other supporters.

He needed multiple surgeries from the multiple fractures he suffered when the vehicle ran over him.

Baba Chungwa was later moved to a hospital in Kisumu by Daughters of Raila and NASA volunteers after calling on Kenyans to help him.

He claimed that Kenyatta hospital had abandoned him.

Passaris today posted a live video of Baba Chungwa going back to his house.

The video, in which Baba Chungwa is sporting a National Resistance Movement (NRM) t-shirt shows the interior of his scanty house.

Here are Passaris' tweets;

FINALLY BABA CHUNGWA HAS ARRIVED AT HIS HOME https://t.co/RDci9kbZth— Esther M Passaris (@EstherPassaris) November 13, 2017

BABA CHUNGWA AFIKA NYUMBANI KUTOKA KISUMU https://t.co/EKs3wptXWS— Esther M Passaris (@EstherPassaris) November 13, 2017

The scantiness of the house caught the attention of Kenyans on twitter who thanked Passaris for following up and requested her to move Nicholas to a better residence.

Here are their responses;
