The Murgor sisters have withdrawn assault charges against Ndichu brothers, Edward and Paul.

A video of the Ndichu brothers involved in an altercation with Cheryll and Stephanie Murgor circulated following the October 17, 2021 incident at the Ole Sereni Hotel in Nairobi.

Through their lawyer Phillip Murgor, the sisters said they made the decision to withdraw the case after the brothers issued a public apology.

“This is to inform the public that the Ndichu brothers have now offered the public and unequivocal apology dated November 24, 2022 to the Murgor sisters and their companions, in terms that have been duly accepted,” Philip Murgor said in a Tuesday statement.

"As a consequence, the Murgor sisters have, effective today (Tuesday, December 6, 2022), withdrawn all their complaints against the Ndichu brothers.”

In their attached apology, the Ndichu brothers said: “We Edward Wanyoike Ndichu and Paul Mwaura Ndichu, hereby issue our unequivocal apology to you, our sisters and brothers Cheryll Murgor, Stephanie Murgor, Samuel Ramdas and Patrick Koech for the unfortunate events that occurred on the night of 17th October 2021 at Mara Ole Sereni Hotel, which resulted in both injury to yourselves and damage to your property.

“We have since then taken time to introspect and self-reflect on the same and acknowledge that given our standing in society, much more was expected of us on how we handled the incident. The unfortunate experience has taught us invaluable lessons which will certainly guide us going forward. 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 endeavor to do better, as sons, brothers and parents.

“Once again, kindly do accept our sincere apologies.”
