Former Presidential candidate Abduba Dida has said that Embakasi East Babu Owino is ready to become a governor in Luo Nyanza.
In a tweet on Friday, Dida said that the lawmaker's remark that Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leader Raila Amolo Odinga must become the next President by ballot or bullet has made him win the heart of the opposition leader.
He noted that the loyalty of the legislator has made him better positioned to be endorsed for the governorship in Luo land.
“Babu Owino is finally ready to become a governor in Luo Nyanza,” he tweeted.
The lawmaker had said that time for Raila to rise to power had come. He said that the allies of the African Union Special Envoy are ready to do anything to ensure he ascends to power.
“This time Raila will be the President by ballot or bullet,” he tweeted.
Owino was arrested this morning over the shooting incident at a night club in Nairobi. The lawmaker has since said he is ready to be probed over the matter. He has asked his supporters to remain calm as he fights to clear his name.
"I invite the relevant authorities to conduct their investigations without fear or favour and I remain confident that the truth will come out. I urge my supporters to remain calm. I will continue to serve wananchi fearlessly. This will not deter me from supporting H. E Uhuru Kenyatta and H. E Raila Odinga in the journey to transform our country," he said moments after he was arrested.
