DPP: We will monitor contributions to Waluke and Wakhungu’s fines

The Directorate of Public Prosecutions has said that key state agencies, including the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission, will monitor contributions to Sririsia MP John Waluke and Grace Wakhungu’s fines.

In an interview with Citizen TV’s Yvonne Okwara, DPP Noordin Haji said they will look into the sources of the contributions to make sure they are legitimate sources and not proceeds of crime.

“The funds have to come from legitimate sources as the state cannot allow proceeds of crime to be used to free other criminals,” the DPP said.

Waluke was sentenced to 67 years imprisonment or a fine of Ksh 721 million after he was found guilty of steering a Sh 314 million maize scandal.

Grace Sarapay Wakhungu was fined Ksh 700 million, with failure to pay granting her 69 years in jail.

Earlier this week, Waluke’s wife Roseline Nakhanu Waluke decried the criticism she faced after asking for citizen’s support to raise her husband’s fine.

“I am stressed. I regret starting this fundraiser to bail out my husband. People have mocked and hurled abuses on me instead of helping me raise the amount.I wouldn’t have done it had I known things would turn out this way. I have left everything to God. Some are calling and telling me that they cannot contribute money to free a thief,” she said.

Unconfirmed reports have indicated that Waluke’s co-convict managed to raise Sh 500 million within two hours.
