Cheryl Murgor and Stephanie Murgor on Monday, November 22, failed to show up at DCIO-Lang'ata offices where they had been summoned in the case where they had accused twin brothers; Paul Ndichu and Eddie Ndichu of assaulting them on October 17.

According to the DCIO office, the sisters were summoned to appear before them at 11:00 am but called in to excuse themselves citing sickness.

"Yes they were summoned to be here today but they called and said one of them is sick. So we told them to come on Wednesday morning at 10:00 am," reported the Lang'ata DCIO office.

However, the sisters’ lawyer who is also their uncle and Senior Counsel Philip Murgor has insisted that it was not a major event and that they have no issues with recording statements.

“We understand that a lady who was with the Ndichu brothers had come out and recorded statements with the relevant officers in charge of the case, and we also put a request to record further statements. Our request was granted by the police and we shall be doing so in a few days,” he told K24 Digital.

Last week, when the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) recommended charges for the brothers, their lawyer Edwin Sifuna, in a statement sent to newsrooms, accused the sisters of attempting to extort the twins.

“The incident at Emara Ole Sereni was a well planned and orchestrated attempt to provoke the Ndichus into a public altercation to set them up for extortion,” Sifuna said.

He said that the sisters through their lawyer, Philip Murgor, have continuously threatened and intimidated the twins.

“The 'extortionists' through their lawyers have at every turn, threatened and intimidated the twins and even their lawyers with a view of forcing them to pay huge sums of money to 'settle' the matter in which they are innocent.,” Sifuna added.
