1 month ago 20

  • Sirisia Member of Parliament, John Waluke, has surrendered himself to the police after the court upheld his 67-year jail term. 

    Waluke was found guilty of embezzling funds in the National Cereals and Produce Board (NCPB) scandal.

    The Anti Corruption court, on Thursday, October 6, ordered him to pay Ksh1 billion or spend 67 years in jail. 

    Justice Esther Maina dismissed his appeal contesting a lower court's ruling issued by Chief Magistrate Elizabeth Juma.

    The magistrate declared that the prosecution had offered sufficient evidence to convict Waluke. His co-accused, Grace Wakhungu's, sentence commenced on Thursday, October 6. 

    Waluke risks losing his seat if he fails to pay the fine. However, he may also seek legal redress at the Court of Appeal.
