What you need to know:

  • The two former Kenya Sevens rugby players were charged in July last year afresh with gang raping the woman three years ago, after their case was declared a mistrial by the High Court.
  • They pleaded not guilty to two counts each, and the court released them on cash bail of Sh300,000 each, despite protestations from the prosecution.
  • The court will make the ruling on May 10. 

A Milimani magistrate has directed former rugby player Alex Olaba to wait until next Monday to know whether he will be released on bond.
