“As a Christian, I felt in my heart that I should forgive them. I can assure you that I will not be bringing the matter back to court in future,” he told the court on Thursday as quoted by Citizen TV.

The incident that occurred at Fortis Towers in Westlands on January 11, 2018, saw the two accused assault Mr. Gichagu and cause him “actual bodily harm”.

They however pleaded not guilty before chief magistrate Francis Andayi and were released on a Ksh. 20,000 cash bail.

Separately, the Embakasi MP had also been charged with two counts of using insulting language “in a manner likely to cause a breach of peace”.
