Babu Owino’s New Year Resolution Is To Leave Alcohol And Drink Chang’aa Only



Just how important are new years resolution to you or any other person in this era? Well, to some, perhaps all or not, just like Hon Paul Ongili alias Babu Owino is to set a step for change.

The Embakasi East legislator has said that from 2020 he’s only indulging in Chang’aa— Kenyan local brew that the State has since banned its production and distribution.

For those who can remember in 2016 at the funeral service of the late minister and Malava legislator Soita Shitanda, DP Ruto and Kakamega Senator Boni Khalwale told mourners that they grew up in homes where chang’aa was an everyday affair.

Before he received salvation, my father’s home was brewing alcohol, but we don’t want to return to that path of brewing chang’aa and busaa for our children to get money for education. That’s why we came up with programmes in dairy and sugarcane farming to ensure our children don’t rely on chang’aa and busaa brewing for their education.” DP Ruto said then

The DP’s revelations came after his now wingman Khalwale eulogised the late Soita as a friend with whom they shared much besides coming from a relatively humble background.

“Soita’s mother, Nasumbu in Butali village, brewed chang’aa whose proceeds educated Soita to become a minister. My mother Shinangoi used proceeds from chang’aa to educate me to the level of a medical doctor,” said Khalwale amid cheers from the crowd.
