Controversial Embakasi East MP Paul Ongili alias Babu Owino is set to try out a new subject in his online classes.
The lawmaker is this afternoon set to take the students who have now overstayed at home following schools’ closure due to covid-19, through Islamic Religious Education (IRE).
Born a Christian, Babu Owino on Saturday September 5, 2020 donned a Sheikh outfit and took to his official social media handles to announce his 1pm IRE class.
To prove that he was not limited to any subject, the first term MP announced his lesson in Arabic language, followed by various quotes from the holy book, the holy Quran.
He then finished his statement with a Takbir, an Arabic statement which is also similar to Allah hu Akbar, meaning God is great and magnificent.
Babu Owino has been recognised by the United Nations and the Voice of America (VOA) for teaching students online amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
The ODM legislator has been taking the 2020 KCPE candidates through revision lessons.
He started in May with mathematics and taught Chemistry in his second online lessons which are normally live on his Facebook page.
A story done by Voice of America about Babu’s online teaching was posted on the United Nation Swahili website.
The lawmaker is a First Class Honours degree holder in Actuarial Science from the University of Nairobi (UoN).
