Janet Mbugua Responds To Clip Of Husband In Hotel Fight


She took to Twitter to express her sadness over the increasing incidences of Gender-Based Violence, particularly owing to the events at the hotel captured on camera that had involved the pair at the centre of the altercation as well as two women.

Media personality Janet Mbugua has addressed the altercation at Ole Sereni Hotel in Nairobi during the past weekend that allegedly involved her husband Eddie Ndichu and his twin brother Paul Ndichu.

She took to Twitter to express her sadness over the increasing incidences of Gender-Based Violence, particularly owing to the events at the hotel captured on camera that had involved the pair at the centre of the altercation as well as two women.

Mbugua has been championing the end to GBV and has seemingly condemned the latest incident that allegedly revealed that the twins attacked the two women for rejecting them with respect.

“I am saddened by increasing incidents of Gender-Based Violence. Over the last decade, I have joined my voice in efforts to #EndGBV.

“I condemn all forms of GBV irrespective of who is involved and will continue to speak out against it. We have laws in Kenya and justice must prevail,” she wrote.

The video which has since gone viral and seen by Viral Tea was shared by activist Boniface Mwangi as well as blogger Edgar Obare which showed the twins at the centre of the altercation as well as the women.

One of the assailants in a white shirt was seen vandalising the side mirror of a Volkswagen vehicle outside the hotel. He then walked majestically into the hotel to join the scuffle between the two ladies and the man donning a black shirt.

The man then tried to split the scuffle which saw the individuals interlocked to each other for the remainder of the clip.

“Yesterday my sister and I were attacked by the Ndichu twins for respectfully turning them down. They threatened to shoot us and ruin our lives.

“My sister was strangled by Paul Ndichu while her boyfriend who had come to her rescue was being strangled by Eddie,” read a DM sent to both Boniface and Edgar.

Inspector-General of Police Hilary Mutyambai announced action to be taken against the video. He was responding to a complainant through his weekly #EngageTheIG Twitter session and advised him to report the incident to the nearest police station.

“This incident should be reported to the nearest police station for action,” he replied.

On the matter of Gender-Based Violence (GBV), President Uhuru Kenyatta was urged to declare it a national disaster following the murder of 25-year-old world 5,000m record holder Agnes Tirop.

The International Federation of Women Lawyers (FIDA-Kenya) chairperson Nancy Ikinu, while expressing its sadness over the matter urged the DCI to inform the public of the steps it is taking to investigate the main causes of the increasing incidences of violence and femicide witnessed in various parts of Kenya.

It also urged media houses to avoid reporting news of the deaths from an overly sensational and patriarchial point of view with the intent of disrupting the reputations of victims.

It also urged members of the public to desist from insensitively discussing victims, especially on social media by laying blame on them and asked all Kenyans to adopt a culture of identifying, reporting and testifying against perpetrators.
