Bad News to Hon Waluke as EACC Acquires New Evidence From S. Africa, Shows the Following

Sirisia member of parliament Hon John Waluke is still being faced with troubles despite being released last week on bail with co-director Judy Wakhungu pending the determination of their appeal. 

A report covered by the Tuesday 20th Standard publication now alleges that Ethics and Anti-Corruption Unit has acquired a new evidence from South Africa which is set to back the case against Waluke with judges Hannah Okwengu, John Mativo and Weldon Korir open to receive it.

The Court of Appeal has therefore granted the anti- graft agency an opportunity to present the new evidence which shows that John Waluke and co-director forged documents in landing a whopping ksh 564m deal from auctioning NCPB assets.

" Appellate judges Hannah Okwengu, John Mativo and Weldon Korir said the EACC I'd justified to produce the new evidence acquired from South Africa to back the case against Waluke and his company Erad Supplies Limited", the statement alleges.

EACC's bold move comes off just a week after Waluke pleaded with President William Ruto to help him out of ksh 564m case.

Apparently, this is a huge blow to Waluke and co-director who have been serving a combined 67 years in jail for fraudulently acquiring the money from NCPB.

Meanwhile, the two have been battling out over ksh 564m civil dispute with National Cereal and Produce Board since 2012 and therefore let's wait and see what happens next.
