Huge Blow To Sirisia MP John Waluke After The Court's Latest Actions In His Appeal Case

The severity of the corruption case against Sirisia member of parliament John Waluke is likely to be upheld on appeal, notwithstanding his plea. A 67-year prison term for corruption was given to the Jubilee politician, who is appealing. 

Sirisia was convicted of theft after being charged with stealing Ksh 564 million from the National Cereals and Produce Board. He was given a choice between 67 years in prison or a Ksh 1 billion fine. Due to the possibility of losing his parliamentary position and receiving a sentence of nearly life in prison given his advanced age, Hon. Waluke has since appealed his sentence, as is his right under the Penal Code and the Constitution.

But recent developments in his effort to escape the penalty have only made things worse for the senator. Since then, additional evidence has been found in the case, and the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission has requested permission from the court of appeals to include it in the proceedings. 

The besieged MP's situation reportedly got worse when the Court of Appeal permitted the EACC to include further evidence.
