Embakasi East MP Paul Ongili popularly known as Babu Owino has reaffirmed that his relationship with the Mt Kenya region is beyond politics.
The vocal first-time legislator was reacting to a derogatory fake tweet that was circulating on social media for the better part of Friday evening.
Babu took to his social media on Saturday morning to distance himself from the tweet, calling upon his followers to treat it with the contempt it deserves.
“This is a fake account treat it with the contempt it deserves,” he wrote on his social media accounts.
In a separate post, Babu reaffirmed that his bond with the Mt Kenya region grew even deeper following the March 2018 handshake between President Uhuru Kenyatta and Opposition Chief Raila Odinga.
“My relationship with the people of Mt Kenya goes beyond politics. The handshake extends to very deep levels. Good morning from me and my gem Fridah Muthoni Ongili,” Babu wrote on his Facebook page.
The youthful legislator met his wife over a decade ago while both were students at the University of Nairobi where Babu served as the chairman of the then Student Organization of Nairobi University, SONU.
The couple is blessed with two beautiful daughters.
