Kenyans have reacted differently to the news of Embakasi Member of Parliament Babu Owino quitting alcohol as he plans to start life afresh.
Kenyans are not convinced, with some arguing it is a PR tactic because we are close to the 2022 elections.
Some were also wondering why he is making his decision to quit alcohol public yet he never told us when he started drinking.
In a recent video, Babu narrated that he started his journey into alcoholism when he was 8 years old.
“AT AROUND EIGHT YEARS, I TASTED CHANG’AA. I DID IT BECAUSE IT WAS WHAT EVERYONE WAS DOING AROUND, AND IT WAS THE NORMAL THING TO DO. OUT OF INFLUENCE, I HAD TO TAKE CHANG’AA. SINCE THEN I HAVE BEEN TAKING ALCOHOL,” BABU SAID.
Now, the controversial MP says he is ready to turn his life around.
“I HAVE HAD MY UPS AND DOWNS. I HAVE MY CHALLENGES AND PASTS SOME OF WHICH ARE DIRTY.
I HAVE REACHED A TURNING POINT AND I HAVE DECIDED TO MAKE A CHANGE. A CHANGE THAT I AM PROUD OF, A CHANGE THAT MY FAMILY IS PROUD OF.
BEING THE MP IS NOT THE MOST IMPORTANT THING. THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IS TO KNOW WHO I AM AS A PERSON,” HE SAID.
Below are some of the responses.
murugi.jane:😂😂God have mercy on us Kenyans is this a strategy to convince us he is a good leader after he shot dj evolve for no reason and was not sorry about it…. If he is elected in embakasi again I will be shocked.
omikihumba: Utavuna ulichopanda wacha kutuhadithia story za kaka bweha.
m.a.k.u.m.i_:Y e ni pombe aliwacha evolve kuongea ni tafash..✌️😉☹️
thecurejsoul: Sasa anataka tumchinjie mbuzi?
anastasia_yvette: It’s so touching, he is just a man, and men to apologize directly is so hard, he is indirectly apologizing to Dj’s family and Kenyans at large, but the most important is that he has said it to God💞 and you are forgiven.
fredz_crazy: 1st step to create peace is acceptance…… either you shout DJ Evolve or not. How do you know if he has reached out to him and his family. Let’s hope n pray for better community n leadership. We human and no perfection
