Babu Owino fires warning to old politicians

Embakasi East Member of Parliament Babu Owino slams a section of old guard politicians over disrespecting youthful politicians

Embakasi East Member of Parliament Babu Owino slams a section of old guard politicians over disrespecting youthful politicians.

Speaking on Sunday, Babu said young leaders should not be despised because of their age.

The ODM MP told old politicians not to expect respect if they do not reciprocate the same to youthful politicians.

“We respect the old guard who are above us politically. But the old guard must respect us because we were also elected by the people,” said Babu.

The Embakasi East lawmaker noted that youthful politicians are being harassed by the old guard politicians.

“Someone who has three kids and intends to have five is that a child. In Central, Ndindi Nyoro is harassed, here, it is Babu Owino. What do you want us to do,” Babu posed.

He further said they will only respect older politicians if they reciprocate the respect downwards.

“If you bring peace, we will bring peace. If you bring war, we will ask God to punish you,” Babu added.
