Nairobi - Two Kenyan rugby sevens players, Frank Wanyama and Alex Olaba,
appeared in a Nairobi court on Monday charged with the February gang
rape of a female singer.
Wanyama, 23, who captained Kenya's second sevens team to win the
Victoria Sevens tournament in Zimbabwe in March, and Olaba, 22, are both
suspended from the national squad currently in Singapore for the eighth
leg of the IRB World Sevens series on April 28-29.
Both players denied the charges when they appeared before Nairobi
chief magistrate Francis Andayi. If found guilty they could face up to
15 years in prison.
Wanyama and Olaba were released on bail and ordered to appear in court for the next hearing on May 16.
