Rugby players Alex Olaba and Frank Wanyama have been sentenced to 15 years in prison each after they were found guilty of raping a woman in 2018.
The former Kenyan international rugby players were been found guilty of gang rape charges following the verdict delivered on Thursday, August 8, 2019 at a Nairobi court.
Magistrate Martha Mutuku, while handing down the sentence said the victim, a local musician, was traumatised by the event which took place at Seefa apartments in Highrise, Nairobi on February 11, 2018.
“The complainant was traumatised hence a deterrent sentence is necessary,” she ruled.
In her statement to the police, the victim claimed that on the fateful day, which was her birthday, she attended a party in Kilimani where the two rugby players were present.
She noted that she only knew one of the two rugby players and after a night of merry-making, she went home with them
