The Office of the Director of Public Prosecution (ODPP) has directed that Ndichu brothers should be prosecuted after they were after they were seen in a video engaging in an altercation with two women at a Nairobi-based hotel.
The twin brother, Paul and Eddie, are facing charges for maliciously destruction of property after one of the brothers was captured on video breaking a side mirror of a car at the hotel’s entrance.
A CCTV footage from Ole Sereni Hotel earlier showed the two brothers engaged in a scuffle with two Murgor sisters, Stephanie and Cheryl, which started at the hotel's rooftop and descended into the lobby.
While speaking to the press on Wednesday, November 17, Edwin Sifuna, the lawyer representing the Ndichu brothers, decried the decision arguing that the ODPP should have preferred charges against Stephanie and Cheryl Murgor given their involvement in the altercation.
"I am disappointed by the decision of the DPP for not charging the Murgor sisters when it is clear that they were supposed to be charged on the following charges. The Murgor sisters should be charged with extortion and defamation with use of GBV (Gender Based Violence) and should also be charged with affray for public fighting and nuisance for their altercation with Munira Munira," Sifuna expressed.
Despite the decision, Sifuna maintained that he would still appear in court to represent his clients on Thursday, November 18.
"I am ready to face them in court tomorrow," Sifuna stated.
The recommendation by the ODPP comes weeks after the Murgor sisters, through their lawyer, Senior Counsel Philip Murgor, wrote a letter to the Inspector General of Police demanding the arrest of the Ndichu brothers.
