Felix Orinda famously known as DJ Evolve who was shot and wounded by Embakasi East Member of Parliament Babu Owino in January, 17 now wants the case against the Lawmaker withdrawn.
Through his lawyer Kenneth Mumbo, DJ Evolve told the court that after intense deliberations with his family, they had agreed that he concentrates on his health situation and drop the pending case.
DJ Evolve says the case has affected his healing process due to divided attention.
Not so fast
However, the DPP says they need more time to assess DJ Evolve’s mental state before they can withdraw the charges.
The Prosecution says they need to unearth the motive behind the position taken by the Evolve’s family.
The court granted the DPP’s request.

“It is my considered view that the application by the prosecution is merited and once the DPP satisfies himself of the issues raised a comprehensive response will be given that will be able to guide the status of this case going forward,” read part of the court ruling.
The case will be mentioned on November, 9.
