The duo was accused by a musician Wendy Kemunto of assault and forceful affair in February 2018 at Highrise Estate in Nairobi county.

The judgement was initially set for Thursday, July 11, but the former Kenyan international player failed to show up in court forcing the court to postpone the ruling to Friday, July 12.

On Friday, Wanyama showed up but his co-accused Olaba failed to appear compelling Justice Martha Mutuku to issue a warrant of arrest against the player.

The two players play for Kenya Harlequens and since the matter was taken to court, they have not been able to play for the national team after Kenya Rugby Union decided to exclude them in the squad until the case is resolved.
