Ex-Kenya Sevens duo charged with gang raping a woman in 2018 have been released on a cash bail of Sh300,000 by magistrate Zainab Abdul at a Milimani Law Court.

Frank Wanyama (22) and Alex Olaba (23) were serving a 15-year prison sentence each for raping a woman in 2018, this before the High Court ordered their retrial on June 30.

Chief magistrate Martha Mutuku of Milimani law courts handed them the sentence on August 16 last year. Ms Mutuku had found them guilty of the offence of gang rape.

Both were convicted of gang raping a musician at a house party at Seefar apartments in Nyayo Highrise estate on February 10, 2018.
