Eliud Mwangi, ''He should go to prison and serve his jail term, why is his defence counsel chasing the suspension of the ruling. Waluke jail awaits you, where will u get 594M its even more than you net worth.''

Tony Gari, ''When they stole did they take note of there age,,7 years ni kidogo.people in US r jailed for even 200 years on several counts.''

Nzomo Timothy, ''Finally a conviction. We are making progress, though slow but its progress. Corruption is what bleeds this great nation. Paying the fine is better than going to jail. It won't benefit anybody if they rot in jail. You can make honest money Kenyans, stop the stealing from the poor!''

The presiding judge and the prosecutor should be applaud for setting a milestone case in Kenya's history The judge should be listed as the top candidate for the forthcoming vacancy of the Chief Justice of Kenya while the court prosecutor be lined up for higher responsibilities. Congratulations for a job well done. It will be the talk of town for a long time and a legacy to the President in the fight against mega corruptions.
