Murgor Sisters Reject Out Of Court Settlement In Assault Case With Ndichus
The family of the two Murgor sisters who were allegedly assaulted by the Ndichu brothers at Emara Ole Sereni Hotel has revealed that they will not accept an out of court settlement in the case.
Speaking at a media briefing, Philip Murgor who is the lawyer to Stephanie and Cheryll Murgor says that they had been approached by three different advocates one of whom is a sitting MP all seeking for amicable out of court settlement on behalf of the Ndichu brothers.
Murgor says he declined the request saying that it was in in public interest that the case proceeds to court.
“We reject these distracting sideshows, and call upon the DPP to call for the files and give appropriate direction on how the offence of affray should be investigated in the light of explanation of self-defense offered by Cheryll and Patrick in the statement recorded,” Murgor stated.
Murgor further expressed frustrations over the slow speed with which the case was being prosecuted further calling for the speedy prosecution of the law.
“It is now over five weeks since the incident happened, and no charges have been preferred against the perpetrators, with no explanation offered to our clients or the public at large,” said Philip Murgor.
The seasoned Lawyer also claimed that Langata Deputy DCIO also thwarted his efforts to present his client, Cheryll and Patrick to record a statement and provide fingerprints and subsequently charge the Munira for the offence of affray.
Regina Chepkemoi the mother to the victims, also said that there is need for the DPP to chip in and ensure smooth flow of justice for her daughters.
The matter is becoming a matter of public inquest as the county join the world in the protracted fight against Gender Based Violence with vulnerability index placing women and children at the peak.
