Talking during an interview with a local TV station, Wendy claimed that after her birthday she decided to spend the night at one of the two mens place but they ended up raping her the whole night. 

“It was my birthday, 10th of February (2018) and the plan was to go out with my friends, have a good time then go back home but unfortunately due to various reasons things didn’t go as I had planned. Unfortunately I was assaulted and abused that night. I didn’t realize what was happening at first because I was unconscious, I was slipping in and out of unconsciousness,” Wendy said during the interview. 

The High Court had ordered for their re trial after they discovered that the records did not show if one of the witnesses had been sworn.
