Lawyer Edwin Sifuna who is representing Paul Ndichu and Eddie Ndichu in the case involving them and the Murgor sisters - Cheryl and Stephanie - claims that the sisters are extorting the twins.

Ndichu brothers are battling an assault case following an altercation they were involved in with the sisters at the Ole Sereni Hotel on October 17.

In a press statement sent to the newsrooms, Sifuna claimed that the two sisters planned the whole incident at the hotel to set up the Ndichu twins for extortion.

"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," he said.

Sifuna said that his claims can be confirmed by the eyewitnesses and evidence obtained from the scene's CCTV video that was obtained by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCIO).

He said that the sisters through their lawyer, Philip Murgor, have continuously threatened and intimidated the twins forcing them to pay huge settlement money.

"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" a matter in which they are innocent.," Sifuna said.

Adding: "The alleged victims' lawyer has repeatedly thrown around his "old networks" in the ODPP vowing to "teach a lesson" to both the Ndichus and their lawyers."

Sifuna further claimed that he has evidence to prove that his clients were being threatened by the Murgors and that the sisters have been working with the investigative bodies to level "far serious charges including illegal possession of firearms and, strangely, attempted murder."

"The Ndichus have resisted these attempts to extort them and have chosen to throw their faith in the Kenyan Judicial system. They have willfully chosen to face these extortionists in court rather than sit with them in board rooms for a 'settlement'," he added.
