Embakasi East MP Babu Owino was on Monday charged with three counts of assault, use of abusive language and creating disturbance.

The MP was released on a sh20, 000 bond and the matter set for hearing on March 22, 2016.

The legislator was arrested on Friday afternoon outside Parliament Buildings after an alleged CCTV footage of him assaulting a parking attendant at an entertainment joint in Westlands, Nairobi, emerged on social media.

He spent Friday and Saturday night in police cells after efforts by opposition leaders and University of Nairobi students to secure his freedom were unsuccessful.
