Safari rally driver Maxine Wahome released on KES 100,000 bail for assaulting boyfriend
After two nights behind bars, top female safari rally driver Maxine Wahome has been released from police custody on KES 100,000 cash bail for allegedly assaulting her boyfriend Asad Khan.
Twenty-six-year-old Wahome, who made history in June this year by becoming the first female to win the WRC3 was arrested on Thursday at their apartment in Kilimani after the boyfriend’s brother made a report of an assault to the police.
The police had applied to have Wahome detained for 14 days pending being charged with grievous harm to Asad Khan, but Magistrate Benard Ochoi declined.
The court heard that by the time police responded to the incident call, Asad had been rushed to Nairobi hospital in critical condition. He allegedly had deep cuts on the right ankle.
Officers who arrived at the scene said there was a pool of blood stains on the floor and staircase. One of the window pane glass was broken as well as two door window panes.
On Tuesday, Wahome’s lawyers had sought to gag the media from covering the case claiming to be the victim and not the aggressor.
In his ruling, justice Ochoi released Wahome on cash bail and ordered her to appear before the investigating officer at Kilimani Police station every Thursday until the investigations are over.
