Murgor protests bid to charge nieces over Ndichu twins saga
Former Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Philip Murgor yesterday protested a bid by the state to allegedly blackmail his nieces over the sex allegations against the Ndichu brothers.
Murgor, a senior counsel, protested against the alleged move moments after he had escorted his nieces Cheryl and Stephanie Murgor to record charge and caution statements at the Langata police station.
The police intend to charge the two sisters and two friends alongside the Ndichu brothers with assault, damage to property and breach of peace.
Murgor claimed the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (ODPP) has decided to charge his two nieces alongside Paul and Eddie Ndichu to force them into withdrawing the case.
Cheryl and Stephanie had recorded statements with the police, accusing the Ndichu brothers of allegedly assaulting them at a city hotel.
But the ODPP through assistant DPP Joseph Riungu, has recommended that both the Ndichu brothers and Murgor sisters should be charged for taking part in the scuffle.
“This shows incompetence and abuse of prosecution powers on the part of DPP. It is a crude and primitive attempt to withdraw their criminal charges. It’s blackmail. We’ll fight it to the bitter end, we hope they show the CCTV recordings on the first court hearing,” Murgor told the People Daily by telephone.
