Felix Orinda, alias DJ Evolve’s dad, John Orinda, has given an update on the welfare of his son’s health following the shooting incident pitting Embakasi East MP Babu Owino.

In an interview with a local publication on Thursday, September 1, Orinda also spoke on the family’s well-being since the death of Mama Mary Hongo.

Orinda said DJ Evolve is fairing on well and he is currently undergoing physiotherapy having undergone three surgeries since the shooting incident.

He said his son can now ear solid foods and at least, he is feeling his legs although he cannot walk.

“He is doing well but is still living an assisted life. He is also starting to feel his legs but he cannot walk yet

“Right now, he is being taught how to sit but continues to be assisted in feeding. It is good that he can now eat solid foods,” said Orinda.

Orinda also mentioned that Babu Owino is still taking care of his son’s treatment plans.

“He is still helping; he has been arranging for my son’s treatment. Anything I ask of him, he does without raising questions

“However, I don’t go to him all the time for everything because I also have to take care of my son as his father and provider,” added Orinda.

Orinda also noted that the family is planning for the memorial service of Mama Mary and it has been scheduled for October 2022.
