The three top politicians who had a major role in John Waluke's freedom.

Sirisia On Saturday, November 18, member of Congress John Waluke was freed from the Industrial Area Prison. After being linked to a corruption scandal involving the National Cereals and Produce Board, the legislator found himself in hot water. Together with a co-conspirator known as Grace Wakhungu, they had been given the option of serving lengthy prison terms or paying a fine of 2 billion shillings. The appeals court granted him release on a 10 million bail while his appeal was being heard.

"Mp John Waluke has been released on a Sh10 million bail by the Court of Appeal pending the hearing of his appeal of 67 years jail term or a Sh2 billion fine handed out by the Anti-Corruption over the National Cereals and Produce Board (NCPB) scandal," reported The Standard.

Ayub Savula, the deputy governor of Kakamega, has named three well-known politicians as having helped secure the legislator's release from the Industrial Area prison. He expressed gratitude to former CS Eugene Wamalwa, NARC Kenya party leader Marrha Karua, and Azimio leader Raila Odinga for securing Waluke's freedom.
