Alex Mahaga Olaba and Frank Wanyama who were sentenced to 15 years in prison each after they were found guilty of raping a woman in 2018 have been released from prison on a cash bail of Sh300,000 by a Milimani Law Court magistrate Zainab Abdul.
This is after the high court ordered a retrial of the rape case last week after the two appealed.
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.
They two were handed the 15 years in jail sentence by chief magistrate Martha Mutuku of Milimani law courts on August 16 last year. Ms Mutuku had found them guilty of the offense of gang rape against a musician on February 10, 2018 at a house party at Seefar apartments in Nyayo Highrise estate.
