  • Cheryll and Stephanie Murgor, on Tuesday, December 6, notified the high court through the Office of the Director of Public Prosecution (ODPP) of the withdrawal of their case against Paul and Eddie Ndichu.

    Through their lawyer, Philip Murgor, the sisters indicated that the Ndichu brothers offered a public apology to them on November 24, 2022.

    "This is to inform the public at large that the Ndichu brothers have now offered a public and unequivocal apology dated 24/11/2022, to the Murgor sisters and their companions, in terms that have been duly accepted," the statement read.

    The twin brothers, in their apology, intimated that they had taken time to introspect and self-reflect and assured Kenyans that will not engage in such incidents in future.   

    "We Edward Wanyoike Ndichu and Paul Mwaura Ndichu hereby issue our unequivocal apology to you, our sisters and brothers, for the unfortunate events that occurred on the night of October 17, 2021, at Mara Ole Sereni Hotel..., we have since taken time to introspect and acknowledge that the unfortunate experience has taught us invaluable lessons.." the apology read in part.

    "We do wish to assure you all and Kenyans at large that we shall not engage in or contribute in any way to such incidents in future as we endeavour to do better as sons, brothers and parents," they added.

    Following the public apology, the Chief Magistrate ordered the withdrawal of all criminal cases relating to the incident.

    Paul and his twin brother Eddie were jointly accused of damaging the side mirrors of a vehicle that belonged to Samuel Dennis Ramdas at the Emara Ole Sereni Hotel in Nairobi valued at Ksh87,000.

    "On the night of 16 and October 17, 2021… jointly wilfully and unlawfully damaged the right-hand and left-hand side mirrors of the motor Volkswagen blue in colour valued at Ksh87,000 the property of one Samuel Dennis Ramdas," read court documents. 

    On March 2022, the High Court suspended the prosecution of the two sisters in a case involving an altercation with the twin brothers to take a plea for assault charges.

    Through their lawyer Murgor, the sisters claimed that the move by the Director of Public Prosecution Noordin Haji to charge them was maliciously intended to blackmail and coerce them into withdrawing their complaints against the Ndichu brothers.

    However, the withdrawal of the case marks the end of the unpleasant saga that saw the Ndichu brothers step down from their roles as Chief Executive Officer and Executive Director of Wapi Pay company.
