Kenyan Motor rally driver released on bail


A Kenyan court on Thursday released Motor rally driver Maxine Wahome on a two million bail after being held in police custody on murder charges.

Wahome, was accused of attacking her 50-year-old boyfriend and fellow rally driver Asad Khan at their apartment in the capital Nairobi in December last year, where he succumbed to injuries.

“I hereby grant the accused a bond of two million Kenyan shillings ($15,100) with a surety of a similar amount,” ruled high court judge Lilian Mutende, adding that the prosecution did not present convincing evidence to deny her bail.

Judge Mutende however ordered Wahome to deposit her passport with the court and keep away from any witnesses.

Wahome, who became the first Kenyan woman to win the third-tier WRC Safari Rally in June last year, pleaded not guilty to the charges.
