Rugby star to appear in court for attempted murder of a witness

Former rugby player Alex Olaba will today appear in court to face charges of attempted murder of a witness in a gang rape case he is facing.

He was supposed to appear on Friday but the session was postponed to today because Milimani law courts were being fumigated then.

He is also likely to face charges of conspiracy to defeat justice.

Olaba was on April 23 produced in court where police were allowed to detain him for seven days to enable them complete investigations into the charges.

The court allowed the police to detain Olaba when he was produced following his arrest.

Investigating officer George Otieno told the court that Olaba made several attempts, directly and indirectly, to contact a State witness in the gang-rape case with intention of interfering with his trial.

He said when Olaba failed to get a positive response, he resorted to unlawful and desperate means to silence the witness.

The court was also informed that the suspect wanted to eliminate the witness in the gang-rape case, which he is facing alongside former player Frank Wanyama.

The two are facing the charges before Principal Magistrate Zainab Abdul at a Milimani court and are out on cash bail of Sh300,000 each.
