The Law society of Kenya President Nelson Havi came out guns blazing against the judgement that was made on John Waluke and Grace Wahungu concerning the maize saga.

Nelson Havi said that it was a fraudulent conviction and unfair to the second term member of parliament for Sirisia constituency.

"John Waluke and Grace Wakhungu contracted with NCPB. NCBP breached the contract. Arbitrator ordered payment. Award was enforced by High Court. NCPB lost before High Court and Court of Appeal and paid the decree. How can that be a crime? Do not celebrate fraudulent convictions," Lawyer Nelson Havi tweeted.
