View pictures in App save up to 80% data. The sentencing of Sirisia MP John Waluke has great political ramification with regard to Chapter 6 of the constitution of Kenya. According to Chapter six of Kenya’s constitution holders of public office should be people of high integrity.
Hon Waluke risks being denied clearance by EACC to vie again in 2022, owing to his corrupt dealings. Other than being denied clearance in future electoral contests, he also risk losing his parliamentary seat should he be jailed for seven years as per the court’s directive.
The major hurdle for the Sirisia legislator, who is also a great ally of Deputy President Dr William Samoei Ruto, is to raise the hefty fine that was granted for him to pay in order to free himself from the confines of the dungeon.
His arrest is a great milestone in the judicial quest to hunt political leaders and bring their case to conviction. It has set a good precedence in the justice system, as most people with purported immense influence will fear to engage in corrupt and dubious deals.
