Two rugby players Frank Wanyama and Alex Olaba have on monday morning been arraigned in Court and charged with Rape.
The two are accused of raping Kenyan female singer Wendy Kemunto at an apartment in Kilimani area, Nairobi.
Wendy Kemunto claimed that she was incoherent when the two Kenya Harlequin FC players took her to their domicile and repeatedly raped her.
She made the claim on her Instagram page, explaining that she did not report the assault immediately it occurred as she was disoriented but sought medical treatment.
She also explained that as a result of the rape, she conceived .
“On February 10 (my birthday) I was raped by two men. I was slipping in and out of consciousness maybe due to shock but I was helpless. I couldn’t fight two men who play rugby professionally, obviously they were stronger hence I let them do whatever they wanted to do the whole night,” reads a section of her post on Instagram.
Screenshots of her ordeal were shared online as users called for the arrest and prosecution of the rugby players.
Social media users launched a campaign to exert pressure on authorities to act swiftly.
