University of Nairobi students’ leader Babu Owino has hinted that he intends to run for the Nairobi gubernatorial seat come the year 2022.
This, he says, will happen after he has served Westlands constituents as from 2017 because he intends to run the parliamentary seat.
“I will run for president in 2027. In 2022 I want to go for the Nairobi gubernatorial seat and in the forthcoming election (2017) I’ll run for the Westlands parliamentary seat. I have the finances to foot the expenses,” Owino told Citizen TV.
The flamboyant student leader also disclosed that he is an established businessman who obtains his money from his establishments.
Babu says that some of the money he uses for campaigns is obtained from international sponsors such as the late Libyan president Muhammar Gaddafi who was killed after his government was overthrown.
The latest revelation comes after reports went round social media that the fiery student leader is planning to throw himself a birthday bash that will see KSh 14.4 million spent.
Among the flashy things that will cost colossal sums of money will be drinks, guests and limousines that will ferry them to and from the venue of the bash which is yet to be disclosed.
Babu has won student elections in the University of Nairobi in two consecutive terms.
