Noordin Haji is on spot once again Over the Ndichu brothers case..
The Federation of Women Lawyers Kenya has asked the Director of Prosecutions to carry out fresh investigations on assault cases involving the Murgor sisters and Ndichu brothers.
Anne Ireri FIDA-Kenya executive director wrote a letter dated 10/12/21 accusing the DPP of carrying skewed and shoddy investigations to favour the Ndichu brothers and their friend Munyra thus calling for new investigations. She expressed her dissatisfaction with the investigation outcomes.
The two sisters, Stephanie and Cheryl, in October accused Ndichu brothers, Paul and Edward, of assaulting them and maliciously damaging property at Sereni Hotel basement in Nairobi.
They provided compelling evidence to support their claims but despite that, the DPP Office have failed to give out positive outcomes from their investigations forcing Fida Kenya to ask the office to conduct new investigations. “The office has disregarded the rights of the victims as per the constitution”, Ireri said.
ODPP had issued a letter to the sisters ordering them to take a plea on the case and the FIDA director is not happy with it. DPP want the girls to be charged for two things; assault and publicly fighting.
Ireri insists that new investigations only will shed more light on the case and help in determining the right findings and clear charges for the perpetrators therefore according to the sister’s justice.
Philip Murgor lawyer representing the sisters has accused Noordin Haji of shielding Ndichus after committing gender-based violence and later on pinning the blame on the victims. He added that his clients were threatened that they will be charged alongside the brothers. The idea is to force them to withdraw the case.
From the evidence provided (CCTV footage), the Ndichu brothers attacked Stephanie and Cheryl and so they have a case to answer. Cheryl only defended herself after she was attacked by Munyra which is acceptable by law, said Philip.
According to Philip All victims of gender-based violence must be protected by the law irrespective of who they are.
