@DonaldBKipkorir This Anti-Corruption Court has set a precedent for our Courts ... John Waluke & Grace Wakhungu have each been fined Kshs. 594,000,000/= ... Even the Hustler Nation aka TangaTanga aka Jubilee Asili aka TSP will abandon their Member to rot in jail ... #WalukeSentencing

@gabrieloguda Breaking News: Court tells John Waluke to look for 594 million, or meet the prison tailor for his measurements to be taken.

@lloydOnyango John Waluke has WON the case. He is going to pay 594M and be free. He will sell land and other properties to raise the amount. The balance will be paid by William Ruto and TangaTanga MPs!

@benson_muthomi And why are Mps and senators not commenting about John waluke fine and sentencing.. Ama wameshtuka..

@NtomuganiaA Sirisia MP John Waluke and former CS Judy Wakhungu's mother fined Sh594 million fine or 7 years in prison.... Tangatanga loss No 1.... No teneThumbs up... The corrupt wameingia baridi! Who will be next..

@_ericndemange John Waluke should be told to pay Kenya Chinese debt. 594 million through installment

@dukeofMusoli27 If a woman was jailed for 30yrs in possession of bhang worth ksh.2000/=,then the Mp John Waluke should wait for his sentence and its implementation.

@StreetNewsChan1 BREAKING: Sirisia MP John Waluke and co-accused each fined Sh594 million or serve 7 years imprisonment if they default in the Sh294 million NCPB case. This ruling is subject to appeal within 14 days

A country of double standards setting a dangerous precedent. All the Goldberg , Anglo leasing, NYS1 &2 suspects are walking freely and have high paying jobs.
