BREAKING NEWS: Sirisia MP John Waluke ordered to pay sh1bn fine or go back to jail
Sirisia Member of Parliament (MP) John Waluke has been ordered to pay Sh1 billion fine or serve 57 years in jail for fraud.
Waluke, who had appealed against a magistrate’s court ruling that slapped him with the heavy sentences, lost the appeal before the High Court on Thursday, October 6.
Waluke was, in June 2020, found guilty of defrauding the National Cereals and Produce Board (NCPB) Sh297 million.
Justice Esther Maina said in her ruling on Thursday that the prosecution proved beyond any reasonable doubt that Waluke took part in the NCPB fraud.
The MP, who was out on appeal, secured re-election in the August 9, 2022 Sirisia parliamentary polls.
