SONU president, Babu Owino might be in hot soup after the court ruled that he be detained in Kilimani Police Station as investigations are going on.

Babu Owino was arrested over alleged hate speech after issuing a stern warning to Gatundu South MP, Moses Kuria and Bahati MP KImani Ngunjiri for allegedly calling for assasination of CORD leader, Raila Odinga.

Babu was arrested on Tuesday at the University. This incident followed peaceful demonstrations by comrades hoping they will be listened to.

Based on an affidavit filed in court, the prosecution says that being an elected student leader Babu wields immense influence on the ground among his colleagues and if released on bail, he will interfere with investigation. The state lawyer Kamau Karori says they are not ready to charge him.
