John Waluke, a Sirisia Member of Parliament, turned himself in to the police after the court affirmed his 67-year sentence.
In connection with the National Cereals and Produce Board (NCPB) scandal, Waluke was found guilty of stealing millions.
On Thursday, October 6, the Anti-Corruption court issued a ruling requiring him to pay Ksh1 billion or serve 67 years in prison.
His appeal was denied by Justice Esther Maina, who determined that the prosecution had presented enough evidence to convict Waluke. On Thursday, October 6, his co-accused Grace Wakhungu’s sentence began.
If Waluke doesn’t pay the fee, he might lose his seat. He may, however, also file a lawsuit in the Court of Appeal.
