Felix Orinda alias DJ Evolve, who had taken Embakasi East MP Babu Owino to court for shooting and wounding him in January, now wants to withdraw the case.


Orinda, through his lawyer Kenneth Mumbo, told the court that after intense talks with his family, they had agreed to concentrate on healing than the case.


DJ Evolve, through his lawyer, said the case against Owino had affected his healing process due to divided attention between the hospital and the court.


However, the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (ODPP) asked for more time to assess the DJ’s mental state before formally withdrawing the charges.


Prosecution told the court they needed more time to establish what was the motivation behind the move by the DJ’s family to withdraw the case against the ODM MP.


The application by the ODPP was accepted by the court and the matter will be mentioned on November 9.
