Media personality Janet Mbugua has issued a statement after her estranged husband was videotaped assaulting women at a Nairobi hotel.
A video of Eddie Ndichu and his twin brother Paul Ndichu attacking two ladies and a man was shared on social media by blogger Edgar Obare on Monday.
The incident reportedly happed at Ole Sereni Hotel along Mombasa Road over the weekend.
In the clip, one of the twins is seen vandalizing the side mirror of a car belonging to the victims before joining in the fight.
It is alleged that the twin brothers started the fight and threatened to shoot the women after turning down their advances. A boyfriend to one of the ladies tried to intervene but was equally assaulted.
In a statement on Monday, Janet condemned the behavior, affirming that justice must prevail. Janet, who is the founder of Inua Dada Foundation, further expressed her dismay with the rising incidents of gender-based violence in the country.
“I am saddened by increasing incidents of Gender-Based Violence(GBV). 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,” the former Citizen TV news anchor tweeted.
Inspector-General of Police Hilary Mutyambai urged the victims to report the incident to nearest police station.
