Waluke In More Trouble Even After Pleading With Ruto Over His Case As New Evidence Is Introduced.

Sirisia member of Parliament honourable John Waluke's troubles have increased following the introduction of new evidence against him and his co-accused Grace Wakhungu.

Court of appeal judges Hanna Okwengu, John mativo and Weldon Korir have allowed the ethics and anti-corruption commission to present fresh evidence against a company owned by the two.

However, in their ruling, the judges said Waluke and Wakhungu will be given fair hearing adding that the new evidence still can be opposed.

"We are satisfied that the prayers sought to introduce new evidence have satisfied all the requirements for presenting new evidence before the court of appeal", said the judges.

National cereals and produce board had filed a case accusing the two of obtaining money even when their company Erad didn't supply the maize as agreed in the tender documents.

The high court found them guilty of corruption and sentenced them for 67 years with an alternative of KSH 1 billion fine.

However, they appealed the decision seeking to overture the rulling and the case is at the court of appeal.

Early this month, honorable Waluke in a meeting in kakamega pleaded with the president to intervene in his case noting that there are key leaders in government whose cases have already been dropped.
