DJ Evolve's family lawyer has told the court that they are in the last stages of negotiations with Embakasi East MP Babu Owino.


The prosecution confirmed that indeed talks have been ongoing between the two parties.


The court heard that the prosecution held two meetings between Babu and Evolve together with the lawyers.


"All we are waiting for is a document from the two parties which will enable us to hand to the DPP for directions," the prosecution said.


The prosecution asked for more time saying the prosecutor handling the matter Nyamosi was away on official duty and she is the one supposed to forward the letter to the DPP.


Ochoi ruled that the matter will be mentioned in three weeks to allow them more time to complete negotiations.


Babu's first attempt at an out-of-court settlement flopped after Ochoi declined to withdraw the matter without being informed what the MP was giving Evolve.


Ochoi said he would consider withdrawing if both parties disclosed the offer.


The MP was charged with attempting to kill Evolve whom he shot at a club in Kilimani last year.
