John Waluke, a Sirisia Member of Parliament turned himself in to the police after the court affirmed his 67-year sentence.
In connection with the National Cereals and Produce Board (NCPB) affair Waluke was found guilty of embezzling money.
On Thursday, October 6, the Anti-Corruption court issued an order requiring him to pay Ksh1 billion or serve 67 years in prison.
His appeal against a decision made by Chief Magistrate Elizabeth Juma of a lower court was dismissed by Justice Esther Maina.
The magistrate ruled that there was enough evidence presented by the prosecution to condemn Waluke.
On Thursday, October 6, his co-accused Grace Wakhungu's sentence began.
If Waluke doesn't pay the fee he could lose his seat. He may however, also file a lawsuit in the Court of Appeal.
Waluke will lose his parliamentary seat if he doesn't file an appeal against the ruling since he will have served more than six months in prison.
Waluke completed his four-month sentence at Nairobi's Kamiti Maximum Prison before submitting an appeal.
