Babu Owino: I was to win ODM ticket by ‘ballot or bullet’ – AUDIO

Embakasi East aspirant Paul Ongili alias Babu Owino on Monday made inciting comments after his win stating that he would have won either by “ballot or bullet”.

The student leader clinched the Orange Democratic Movemet (ODM) ticket for the constituency with 6,093 votes.

Asked how he felt after the win, Babu made comments insinuating that he would have resorted to violence had he not won the party primaries.

“I stated in my Facebook I must win the MP for Embakasi East by bullet or ballot, that is how it is. And you know me. I’m not scared of anything and that is Babu Owino. Had we not got it by ballot we would have got it by bullet,” he said.


The University of Nairobi student leader protested the opponent’s results saying, “I regret very much that my opponents tried to rig me out by garnering over 1,000 yet his true figures was 392 votes. We have more spoilt votes.”

Babu watered down the importance of having the provisional nomination certificate saying it was “not his problem as he is the Embakasi East MP.”

The Students Organisation of Nairobi University (Sonu) chairman said his constituency had heavy police presence.

“We were not afraid of the GSU who came to intimidate voters. To us they are like Blue Band tins we don’t fear them,” said Babu.

He stated that he is ready to serve the people of Embakasi East adding that he was the right candidate.
