He is still in hospital with Sh11 million bill, Babu only paid Sh5 million – Dad of DJ evolve

Dj Evolve was unknown by most Kenyans until he was allegedly shot by Babu Owino at the B-Club premises where he worked as the resident deejay.

Since that tragic January day, he has been at Nairobi Hospital recuperating from his wounds. While there, contradictory reports have emerged, like; the cost of his treatment, how much of it had been offset by Babu Owino and whether he was still at the hospital?

This past weekend, The-Star spoke to the entertainer’s father to get a clearer picture of what was really going on? John Orinda, dismissed reports that his son had been released from Nairobi hospital.

Not only that, Mr. Orinda also contradicted the earlier claim made by Babu Owino that he had settled his son’s hospital bill.

“He is still in hospital and as we speak, I’m in the ward with him. The bill is still too high. Babu paid only Sh5 million of the Sh16 million bill.”

Babu had also claimed that Dj Evolve hadn’t been released because of the Covid-19 pandemcic, something Mr. Orinda was having none off stating that his son’s lower body is still unresponsive.

“He has been moved to the general ward, but he can’t sit. His upper body is okay, his hands can move, he can talk, but he has a pipe in the oesophagus to pass out mucus. So he can’t talk when it’s inside. His legs are still unresponsive.”

‘Pay Dj Evolves bill’ KOT remind Babu Owino after pay cut offer

 

Dj Evolves medical bill keeps rising and last we heard, it was almost sh13million.

His parents have continued expressing frustration and fear at the outstanding bill. And here is where Babu Owino comes in.

Babu Owino is catching quite the flak on social media.

He tweeted how he will donate half his paycheck to help fight the spread of coronavirus. He is following in the footsteps of President Uhuru and DP Ruto who will take an 80 percent pay cut amid the pandemic.

DJ Evolve’s hospital bill skyrockets to Ksh 13 million

DJ Evolve, real name Felix Orinda, is recovering well after his third surgery. DJ Shock, who has been keeping in touch with the family, said Evolve is doing well.

Shock said,

“He is still recovering but only his mother is allowed to be close to him, other visitors wave from the outside of the glass,This was after his third surgery so the wound can heal as quickly as possible”

His mother has to wear a mask and apron when she enters his ward.

“It’s not to do with Covid-19. This was the protocol even before it was in the country,” Shock said.

“Yes, the nurses clean the wound every five days, as he now has movement in his arms. Eventually his legs will respond as well. I believe, too, he will make a full recovery.”

However, despite this good news, the family is wary of the growing hospital bill.

Early this month, a High Court judge Luka Kimaru ruled the order to pay the bill could only be issued by a civil court and not a criminal court.

“The accused person should continue paying the hospital bill as a moral duty to him, not as a court order. If he fails to pay, it is up to him and his God,” Kimaru ruled.

The family has reservations if Embakasi MP Babu Owino will help them settle the hospital bill that keeps skyrocketing. Already, it is almost hitting the Sh13 million mark.

Dj Evolve’s mother cries out over rising medical bill 

 

Felix Orinda aka DJ Evolve is still in a critical condition. The disc jockey who was shot in the neck by Embakasi East MP Babu Owino on 17 January at B Club, is fighting for his life at Nairobi Hospital’s ICU.

The family is worried about their son’s health and are struggling to pay the bill despite the court having ordered the controversial politician to pay Ksh10m million to cater for DJ Evolve’s treatment.

Chief Magistrate Francis Andayi ordered Babu Owino to pay the cash in installments of Ksh2.5 million per month until the disc jockey recovers fully.

According to the family, the only bill the lawmaker paid was Sh600,000 he paid before he was arrested but since his release, he has failed to clear any bills.

His medical bill has shot to Ksh7.5 and his family is having sleepless nights and can’t raise it.

 

He’s unable to talk and doctors are relying on pipes to feed him. His health isbn’t okay and Nairobi hospital keeps calling the mother to start paying the bill..’ a family member told NTV.

Chief Magistrate Francis Andayi has already withdrwan from the case.

I had altercation with Babu bodyguards before shooting drama at B Club

 

Mark Okweri was at B-Club before the shooting at around 1:00 a.m and joined Embakasi East Babu Owino in his table.

The witness said that he has been a friend of the MP for a long time and that everyone was having a good time at the club before the incident.”

“At some time there was a confrontation between Babu’s bouncers and I… they got really physical and at that point, I left and went to Kilimani police station,” he said.

On Friday morning, Okweri arrived at the club to get the CCTV video but apparently he was told the cameras were off.
