Embakasi East MP Paul Ongili almost shed tears as he pleaded with the magistrate to Discharge him on bond saying which he had been tortured at Pangani polices station cells.
Mr Ongili, who can be better known as Babu Owino, also said police jammed the cells with street children who harassed him.
His defence team, led by Rarieda MP Otiende Amollo, said the litany of cases he can be facing are linked to an election petition against him.

“Hon Babu Owino can be being persecuted by the prosecution with instructions via the state,” Amollo said.
The court heard which the complainant can be petitioner inside case challenging the 1st time MP’s election victory.
There was a heavy presence of anti-riot police officers arrive at Kibera Law courts where Babu Owino was arraigned on Thursday even as his supporters accused the police of confiscating the legislator’s phone.
