Several Ruto allies on Sunday held prayers at MP John Waluke’s home ahead of the legislator’s appeal on Monday.

Photos shared across social media platforms showed politicians among them former Kakamega Senator Boni Khalwale knelt in supplication.

Khalwale on Sunday announced on social media that he was headed to Sirisia to attend the prayer service of the incarcerated legislator.

 

Through his lawyers, Waluke filed a 30-point document detailing what the lawyers term as inconsistencies and lack of independence in arriving at the guilty verdict.

This as the MP notified National Assembly Speaker ofm his intention to appeal his conviction, which could buy him time to remain the Sirisia MP.

Reports indicate that Waluke is still at the Industrial area prison, while Grace Wakhungu is spending her time at the Langata women’s prison.
