Former ODM Executive Director Magerer Lagat has withdrawn the assault case he had filed against five Nairobi Members of County Assembly.
Lagat told a Kibera court that he had withdrawn the case against MCAs Elias Otieno, George Ochola, Catherine Apiyo Okoth, Alvin Olando and Daniel Oria Okumu after being paid Sh300,000 compensation fee.
Lagat said he has out of his volition decided to forgive them.
“I received a total of Sh300,000 from the accused but there was no threats of coercion. We had successful discussions and I agreed we settle the case out of court, ” he said.
The compensation, he said, had taken care of his medical expenses.
