    Raila Issues Demands to Over Waluke Sentence

    Published on

    Odinga contended that Waluke was being persecuted as a result of his political associations, and that the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP), Noordin Haji, should drop the chatges against the Member of Parliament of any wrongdoing.

    Raila made these statements while speaking at the burial service for Mama Philomena Barasa in Kakamega County. He argued that the alternative sentence of imprisonment or a fine that was given to MP was unjust.

    “How is it possible to sentence someone who is 55 years old to 67 years in prison? Is it just to put Raila in jail for the next fifty years as a result of this? We strongly urge that Waluke be granted bond without delay!” he stated,

    “It was improper that he was held responsible for billing and accepting payment for services that he did not actually provide; he should have been required to repay the money instead. This particular situation ought to be finished away with completely, “Raila demanded.

    On the other hand, the DPP Haji defended his choice to reconsider some of the cases he had previously filed against a group of Kenya Kwanza associates.

    In reference to the case of graft presented against the Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua, he stated that his officers discovered that part of the material that was handed to his desk had been tampered with.

    In the lead-up to the August elections, he accused George Kinoto, who had previously served in the role of Director of Criminal Investigations (DCI), of using the media in an attempt to pressure him into prosecuting certain figures.
