Artur Margaryan one of the two Armenian brothers at the centre of
the mercenary claims now says he is ready to withdraw a defamation
case against Langata MP Raila Odinga if the legislator apologizes.

Margaryan Thursday filed a defamation suit against the legislator at
the Nairobi law courts.

Speaking to the press at his Runda home, Margaryan alleged the
defamation had greatly affected his businesses in the country.

He cited a case where a property development firm had suspended his
contract until the mercenary allegations against him are cleared.

Meanwhile, the Armenian said he is ready to kick start his low cost
housing project in Athi River and Mlolongo in the next one week.
