Former Kenyan international rugby players Frank Wanyama and Alex Olaba have been found guilty of rape charges following the verdict delivered on Thursday at a Nairobi court.

The two were accused of raping an upcoming female musician in Nairobi and were charged with the offence of gang rape.

They denied the claims.Wanyama and Olaba are said to have committed the act at Seefa apartments in Highrise, Nairobi on February 11, 2018.

In her statement to the police, the woman claimed that on the fateful day, which was her birthday, she attended a party in Kilimani where the two rugby players were present.

She notes that she only knew one of the two rugby players and after a night of merry-making, she went home with them.

It was then, she claims, that they took advantage of her inebriated state and raped her repeatedly, refusing to take no for an answer. In their statements, the players maintained that sexual contact was consensual.

Sentencing is scheduled for tomorrow.
