On Thursday, the Murgor sisters accompanied by their mother Regina Chepkemboi and lawyer Phillip Murgor called a press briefing in which they claimed that they had turned down offers to reach an out-of-court settlement with the Ndichu Brothers.
The Murgors said three lawyers had approached them with offers of an amicable settlement.
“We have been approached by 3 different advocates, one of whom is also an MP. All seeking an amicable out-of-court settlement on behalf of the Ndichu brothers,” they said in a joint statement alongside fellow complainants Samuel Ramdas and Patrick Koech.
According to the statement, Amadi Associates Advocates through lawyer Njenga Kiarie wrote to Lawyer Phillip Murgor asking the sisters to settle out of court saying the incident at the Ole Sereni Hotel in mid-October was a misunderstanding.
The advocate indicated that the Ndichu brothers were willing to pay for the repairs for the damage to the car belonging to Samuel Ramdas.
“We politely rejected all the overtures, and indicated that it was in the public interest that the case proceeds to court,” the statement adds.
However, the Ndichu brothers have denied making such overtures.
“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,” lawyer Edwin Sifuna said in a statement on Thursday.
“As such our position remains that we want to meet these extortionists in court. We will not negotiate with criminals,” he added.
The brothers want the Murgor sisters arrested for assaulting and causing actual harm to one Munira.
The Ndichus further accused the sisters of trying to intimidate the Director of Public Prosecutions, Noordin Haji.
They claim the sisters are using their famous family name to try and influence the outcome of the case.
“The Murgor Sisters must be reminded that the ODPP is an independent office not subject to direction or control of anyone, including famous uncles,” Sifuna said.
Adding: “We demand the immediate arrest of the Murgor Sisters failing which a formal complaint shall be lodged against the DCIO Langata.”
