During the court session in Nairobi the prosecution requested the court to deny him bail.

Prosecutor Nicholas Mutuku said the legislator has four previous charges of similar nature.

Mr Mutuku added that the gravity of the offence Mr Owino faces is a compelling reason. His colleague, Catherine Mwaniki, told the Chief Magistrate Francis Andayi that Babu is an influential person and might interfere with witnesses.

Ms Mwaniki said the accused has no fixed home and tracing him might be difficult. She urged the court to balance Babu’s rights and public interest

Ms Mwaniki pointed out that there was public protest following Babu’s utterances and his release on bail might lead to more protests. She said the rights of an accused person does not supersede public interest.

In reply, Mr Orengo argued the court to look at the evidence before him and not what the prosecutions imagines.

Mr Orengo says the charges are defective. He said presidency is not a public officer and amorphous, and can run into scores of people.
