Politician and lawyer Edwin Sifuna who is representing twins; Paul and Eddie Ndichu has put out a statement about the court case.
Sifuna said, "We confirm having been contacted by the DCIO to present Paul and Eddy Ndichu in court this morning."
Adding, "We have maintained from the onset that the incident at Emara Ole Sereni was a well planned and orchestrated attempt to provoke the Ndichus into a public altercation in order to set them up for extortion."
In the statement, he continued, "This position is informed by both eye witness accounts and evidence collected by the DCIO Langata from the scene including CCTV video. The alleged victims have also incessantly demanded ridiculous amounts of money further reinforcing this belief."
Read the rest of the statement below.
"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 clearly innocent.
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.
Evidence of the alleged victims' lawyers threats can be found in efforts by the said lawyer to intimidate coerce and blackmail both the investigating officer and the ODPP into levelling far serious charges including illegal possession of firearms and strangely attempted murder both of which are unsupported by any evidence.
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".

What is most unsettling is the decision by the DPP to recommend charges against the Ndichus even with glaring gaps in the evidence including failing to record statements from key participants in the incident at Emara.
Infact the police have never recorded a statement from Munira, the lady seen being viciously attacked by the alleged victims, and who sustained serious injuries from the attack. She has presented herself severally including spending the entire day yesterday at Langata Police but the police seem disinterested. We believe that dispassionate, independent analysis of the evidence by an objective Prosecutor would result in at worst, a charge of affray against all participants in the incident at Ole Sereni, including the alleged victims.
Meanwhile, it appears Munira deserves no justice at all from the ODPPs perspective for the serious injuries she sustained at the hands of the Murgor Sisters because she doesn't have a famous name.
She is ready and willing to give her statement if the DCI and the ODPP care to listen."
Responding to these claims, lawyer Philip Murgor said, "We have never asked for or accepted to sit down to discuss the resolution at all. We have always insisted on criminal investigation. The letter from the real, not political lawyer of the Ndichu’s sent was totally ignored."
