A Nairobi Court has granted Sirisia Member of Parliament John Walukhe and his co-accused Grace Wakhungu Ksh.10m and Ksh 20m cash bail respectively.

The court ruled that there were no sufficient grounds to deny the two bail, arguing that they had both met the threshold.

Justice John Oyiengo  directed the two to deposit their travel documents with the court they will also be required to report to the deputy registrar on a monthly basis

During the hearing, the court dismissed Walukhe’s concerns that he stands to lose his parliamentary seat if he remains in custody.

 

The two were previously convicted of receiving Ksh.313m in fictitious claims for the storage of non-existent maize.

Waluke thereafter sentenced to a combined 67-year jail term, or pay up to 1.04 billion shillings in fines.

Wakhungu was required to pay 1.02 billion shillings in fines or serve 69 years in prison.
