    Parliamentarian John Waluke of Sirisia Freed from Jail

    Published on

    MP John Waluke of Sirisia Freed From Jail, a member of parliament in Sirisia, has been released on bail while his appeal of a 67-year prison sentence proceeds.

    The lawmaker paid Ksh10 million in cash bail and was freed on Friday, November 18.

    The lawmaker was also given the option to deposit a surety bond in the amount of Ksh20 million while his appeal is processed.

    In 2020, after being found guilty of embezzling money, Waluke was given a 67-year prison term.

    The lawmaker was offered a way out of paying the Ksh1 billion fine.
    Waluke said he was appealing the High Court’s decision and going to the Court of Appeals to overturn his conviction.

    The legislator filed signed documents pleading with the court to release him, saying he was in danger of losing his position because of his absences.

    As a result, he requested that his appeal be given first priority.

    According to the National Cereals and Produce Board (NCPB), Waluke and his accomplice Grace Wakhungu stole sh297 million from them in 2004.
    As of the year 2020, a special anti-corruption court had declared the duo guilty.
