In a fresh twist to the Ndichu twins’ saga, the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (ODPP) has declined to charge the two suspects over their incident at the Ole Sereni Hotel earlier this week.
According to a local media publication, sources close to the case say that a file forwarded to Noordin Haji Wednesday, 20 October 2021, was returned to the Akila Police Station’s crimes unit as the DPP demanded further forensic investigations in a case in which two brothers are alleged to have assaulted two women.
In what is seen as an escalation in differences between the office of the DPP and DCI, detectives have been directed to cover at least 10 key issues before charges can be preferred on Paul and Edward Ndichu.
Among the things police are required to do is to obtain a doctor’s report to prove the complainants sought treatment before a P3 form was issued by the police.
The police have also been directed to ascertain from the Firearms Licensing Board if the Ndichu brothers are indeed licensed firearm holders.
They have additionally been directed to obtain CCTV footage from the hotel on the events of the night of the attack.
Investigators are also expected to question the Ndichu brothers to get their side of the story as well as record statements of police officers who were called to the hotel.
A man accompanying the sisters who also complained to the police will also be required to hand over his mobile phone for forensic investigations.
