Hours after the Murgor sisters turned down an alleged out-of-court settlement offer by the Ndichu brothers following an assault incident at the Ole Sereni Hotel last month- Ndichus’ lawyer has hit back
Through their lawyer, Philip Murgor, they claimed that they turned down offers from three lawyers and a Kenyan MP to settle the matter.
According to their statement, the offer was followed up with a letter that agreed to pay for the repairs for the damage to the car belonging to one Ramdas.
But Murgor says they have rejected the offer and are ready to pursue the matter in court.
Murgor claims there has been an attempt to interfere with the investigations by unnamed people, citing when they were told at the Kibera Law Courts that the brothers will not be charged following new directives.
The twins through their lawyer Edwin Sifuna, noted that the letter by the sisters purportedly addressed to the Director of Public Prosecutions undermines the ODPP as an independent office not subject to direction or control of anyone, including “famous uncles.”
The Statement went on,
We have in the past raised the alarm on attempts by these lawyers to use “old networks” in the ODPP to intimidate the ODPP and DCIO Langata into leveling unsupported charges against the Ndichus in order to use those charges to blackmail them into settling a matter in which they are innocent.
The public now has evidence of this in the long rumbling letter by the said lawyers.
Further, the Murgor Sisters have failed to honor police summons to answer to their own Charges of assaulting and causing actual harm to one Munira. The Police have clearly been intimidated into extending preferential treatment to them because they carry a famous last name. We demand the immediate arrest of the Murgor Sisters failing which a formal complaint shall be lodged against the DCIO Langata.
Lastly and contrary to what the Murgor Sisters are claiming, our clients have made no offers at all to settle this matter because they firmly believe in due process. As such our position remains that we want to meet these extortionists in court. We will not negotiate with criminals.
Be advised that all communication on this matter will originate from the undersigned and all inquiries or clarifications should be addressed to him.
