Popular Kenyan singer turned Member of Parliament (MP) Charles Njagua alias Jaguar has apologized to Embakasi MP Babu Owino after their altercation that turned ugly on Tuesday.
Jaguar appeared remorseful for the incident which saw him in a fist fight with Babu on Tuesday, October 10.
“What happened yesterday is unfortunate, I ask Babu Owino to forgive me but if he continues to disrespect Uhuru I’ll deal with him,” he said on Wednesday,October 11.
On the contrary, Babu Owino says he does not regret fighting him because he(Jaguar) wanted to kill him. He said, however, that he has forgiven Jaguar and Benjamin Gathiru of Embakasi Central who attacked him.
“I cannot regret because I was defending myself. It was an act of self-defence in the face of a malicious attack. If I did not defend myself, right now, it would be a different story. Embakasi East residents would be missing their MP and Kenyan citizens would now be mourning,” he said.
The two engaged in the fight after Jaguar stormed into the media centre demanding to know why Babu had disrespected President Uhuru Kenyatta by referring to him as “mtoto wa mbwa”.
Jaguar also got irritated after Babu Owino referred to President Uhuru Kenyatta as the ‘caretaker president’.
“We have no president in Kenya, Uhuru is a caretaker president,” said Babu Owino.
“If I did not defend myself I would be dead by now because the way those people came to me was so strange and weird. Seemingly, they also had a group of people that had planned earlier to come and attack me,” added Owino.
“I will forgive them as the Bible says and I will follow the Bible. It is my choice not to report them. As Babu Owino, I am so innocent and I will not follow the law but just forgive them.”
He also condemned their action saying they were setting a bad example to the nation.
“I would like to condemn the act done by Jaguar and his colleague Benjamin Gathiru of Embakasi Central with the contempt it deserves because that is unbecoming conduct from a Member of Parliament,” he said.
