The Murgor sisters have flatly rejected an out of court settlement as proposed by the Ndichu brothers in assault case.
Cheryll and Stephanie Murgor they now want the Director of Public Prosecutions Noordin Haji to give directions on how the offence of affray should be investigated.
They also want the DPP to bring the ‘unfolding shenanigans’ to an end, and the Ndichu twins charged appropriately.
“We reject this distracting sideshow, and call upon the DPP to call for the file and give appropriate directions on how the offence of affray should be investigated in the light of the explanation of self defence offered by Cheryll and Patrick in the statements already recorded,” read the statement.
The sisters, Samuel Ramdas and Patrick Koech said they had turned down offers from three lawyers and a Kenyan MP to settle the case outside of the courtroom stating that it was in the public interest that the case proceeds to court.
According to the statement, one advocate, Njenga Kiarie, from the firm of Amadi and Associates followed the offer up with a letter dated October 26 2021 in which he offered to pay for the repairs for the damage to the car belonging to Ramdas which they politely rejected.
At the same time, the sisters have denounced what they call a law enforcement attempt to sway the outcome of the ongoing investigation.
They claim that for instance, when they appeared before the Kibera Law courts where the Ndichu brothers were to be charged, they were informed that the twins would not be charged after all, because there were “new directives”.
Further, the sisters allege a violent and well-coordinated social media campaign of wrongly portraying them as extortionists and influence peddlers who were out to profit from the incident.
They also highlighted the recent developments in the case during the briefing on Thursday, stating there appears to be a concerted drive to have them withdraw the case.
“We take the new developments as a crude attempt by sections of the police toforce our clients to withdraw or compromise their complaints against theNdichu brothers,” the statement reads.
Last week, Eddie and his twin brother Paul Ndichu through Amadi Associates Advocates requested to solve the matter amicably saying the incident was a misunderstanding and they are ready to repair the damaged car.
The brothers have also distanced themselves from the social media trends on the two sisters saying that it continued to hamper goodwill in resolving the matter between them.
“Our clients have not in any way instigated the euphoria being perpetrated on social media and media in general, that continues to antagonize any goodwill in resolving this matter amicably,” the letter reads.
