Kenya is a sovereign state that is guided by the new constitution that has fundamental human rights and freedoms protecting citizens.
This morning, Sirisia member of parliament Hon John Waluke, who was convicted and jailed by the Anti-Corruption Court for graft case, has been granted Sh10 million bail or Ksh20 million bond with surety pending the hearing of his appeal against the 67-year jail sentence.
On October 6 this year, the High Court upheld a 67-year prison term for Sirisia MP John Waluke and Grace Wakhungu for defrauding the national cereals and produce board (NCPB) huge amount of money totaling to ksh 297 million.
In conclusion, these are good news to the people of Sirisia constituency and a sigh of relief to the lawmaker as he's free now waiting for the hearing and determination of his case.
