    The former student leader was released on January 27, on a cash bail of Ksh10 million.

    In October 2020, DJ Evolve stated that the family had agreed to drop the case through his lawyer and focus on getting better.

    The prosecution responded by saying that they need time to establish the motivation behind the DJ’s sudden change of tune before the charges could be withdrawn.

    The Magistrate also noted that the court had not been informed whether or not compensation had been made to DJ Evolve.

    At the time, DJ Evolve narrated how the case had affected his process of healing, and how he wanted to focus on recovery.

    DJ Evolve was admitted and placed in the ICU at Nairobi Hospital on January 17, after his shooting at Nairobi’s B-Club.
