MP Waluke out on bond; which way for the Bungoma senatorial election

Veteran Sirisia MP John Waluke’s release from incasseration on bond today, further complicates Kenya Kwanza’s chances of winning the 8th December Bungoma Senatorial race.

This critical moves comes in the wake of former Prime Minister and Azimio Presidential Candidate Rt. Hon. Raila Odinga adding his powerful voice to the Waluke saga and demanding his release.

With the Senatorial race political octane heightening, and an anticipated visit to Nzoia Sugar by Agriculture CS Mithika Linturi later today, all chips are lined to fall on the doorstep of veteran legislator Hon. Wafula Wamunyinyi, who has recently been vocal in urging residents to vote for an experienced Senator as opposed to rewarding sychophancy.

It will be interesting to see how Hon. Waluke weighs in on the Senatorial race with reliable sources on the ground hinting at a massive political rally slated for the weekend in Sirisia.

Scheduled to attend the Waluke Homecoming Rally in Sirisia will be Baba himself, KANU Chairman Gideon Moi, Azimio Running mate Martha Karua, Wiper Leader Kalonzo Musyoka, ODM Secretary General Senator Edwin Sifuna, amoung other Azimio leading lights.

John Waluke, who was, in June 2020, found guilty of defrauding the National Cereals and Produce Board (NCPB) Sh297 million, was sentenced to a 67 year jail term.

Following his appeal of the sentence, a High Court upheld the same judgement, which led to him being locked up in Remand Prison, October 7, 2022.

The Sirisia Jubilee legislator, who has just been released on a Kshs 10M bond this morning, is expected to play an important role in the forthcoming Senator Elections.
