The court also found that there was no evidence to show that the MP was behaving disorderly while carrying the fire arm.

Honorable Ochoi noted that the victim also denied quarrelling with the accused during the night of the incident.

In addition, the ballistic experts  could not match the collected spent catridge with the legislator’s firearm.

The MP had been charged with misuse of a firearm and conducting himself in a disorderly manner.

In March, the court had put him on his defence after ruling that he had a case to answer.

However, DJ Evolve told the court that he did not see the firearm that was used to shoot adding that he was a having a conversation with Babu at a popular club in Kilimani where he worked moments before he was shot.

“I was injured by a bullet but I don’t know from which gun. I just found myself in a vehicle to hospital,” he said.
