Babu Owino is the husband to Frida Muthoni and a father to two children, a son and a daughter. Owino has been a controversial figure in local politics.
He is perceived to live the bad boy lifestyle and was in January 2020 arrested for shooting an unarmed nightclub DJ in the neck at close range while at B-Club, a popular nightclub in the Kilimani area in Nairobi. Owino was charged with attempted murder and jailed for 7 days then released on bail.
A video of the shooting was published by several media, leading the DCI to announce that his office will charge him with attempted murder because it was clear he intended to kill the man. According to Owino, though, he acted in self defence after he was provoked.
