Sirisia Member of Parliament John Waluke on Thursday 1 October 2020 stated that he was innocent and was not involved in the Ksh. 297 million maize scandal that saw him being handed a 67-year sentence.

After months of being behind bars, the legislature on Thursday made his way into the National Assembly after being released on Monday 28 on a Ksh. 10 million pending the hearing of his sentence.

Waluke’s entrance brought the House to a standstill as his colleagues cheered him as he made his way into the chambers.

Waluke went on to thank everyone who stood by his side as he fought to clear his soiled name. he added that he did not steal anything.

“I have been away for months and I want to take this opportunity to thank those who stood by me. I want the nation to know that I did not steal anything,” he said.

After his release, Director of Public Prosecution Noordin Haji challenged the High Court’s decision to release the MP stating that his office intends to appeal the decision to the Court of Appeal.

“Take notice that the DPP, being dissatisfied with the decision of the High Court intends to appeal to the Court of Appeal against the decision in which the court released each of the appellants on bail pending their appeal,” the notice read.

In June, Waluke was sentenced together with his business partner Grace Wakhungu or pay a fine of Ksh. 707 million. Their company Erad General Suppliers was convicted and sentenced.

The two and the company were found guilty of various offenses, each carrying sentences of between one to seven years, with varied fines all totaling to Sh707,725,562 for Wakhungu and Sh727,725,562 for Waluke.

The sentence followed a conviction after the prosecution proved the two irregularly received Ksh. 300 million from the National Cereals and Produce Board in 2004.

Both are listed as directors of Erad General Suppliers, the firm that received the payment.

HILARIOUS VIDEO: Woman offers herself to be married by President Kenyatta at BBI Launch event

Published

on

A woman who spoke at the BBI Launch on Monday caused prolonged laughter when she said she was ready to be President Uhuru Kenyatta’s ‘mpango wa kando‘ (which loosely translates to second wife) and that Deputy President William Ruto should be the Best man in their wedding [watch the video below].

 Last week, Kenyatta tickled the audience in Kisumu when he joked that he would ask his wife if she would let him get a second wife from there.

On a more serious note though, there is indeed a  law that went into effect in Kenya in 2014 makes it legal for a man to marry as many women as he wants.

President Uhuru Kenyatta signed the polygamy measure into law formally recognizing what has long been a cultural practice in the nation.

The bill initially allowed the first wife the right to veto the husband’s choice of additional spouses. Male members of parliament successfully pushed to get that clause dropped.

 

“Marriage is the voluntary union of a man and a woman whether in a monogamous or polygamous union,” Kenyatta said in a statement. “The Marriage Act 2014 defines various types of marriages including monogamous, polygamous, customary, Christian, Islamic and Hindu marriages.”

‘I was jobless and about to be kicked out’ Tedd Josiah on how Kenyans came through for him after losing his wife

Published

on

Kenyan Music producer and JokaJok founder Tedd Josiah has thanked Kenyans for coming through when he lost his wife Reginah Katar.

Katar passed away just months after welcoming her daughter Jay.

Since then, Tedd says strangers became family and he is forever grateful.

‘To our beloved IG family, To say thank you doesn’t ever feel like it’s enough.

I was broken (am still in repair) and lost.

2017 Oct was all about cliffhanging in PAIN, learning how to raise a baby girl 3 months old ALONE! No nanny, no relatives, no one just baby and I walking the toughest walk I’ve ever had to.

Tedd Josiah

Guess who came through for us with baby clothes, with baby milk, with words of encouragement, with prayers and more prayers and more prayers…? Our IG FAMILY that was at the time only 20k at the time.

When JayJay’s 1st birthday 🎂 came along I was scared and very jobless about to be kicked out of our home.

People from as far as China sent JayJay gifts 🎁 and cakes 🎂 and so many other things. You made it bearable.’

Adding

‘When we launched mama’s idea of a bag company JOKAJOK you embraced us and have continued to build with us from day one.

Now we not only feed ourselves but we feed 11 other families through employment and we empower single mothers and fathers in our company.

Our head of leather studio is a lady feeding and fending for 3 children alone, all our other staff also have children to fend for and we’ve managed to come this far with you our IG family and build a legacy company.

Tedd Josiah

The road ahead is even longer and only God knows were it leads.

Sometimes strangers become closer than family and love you in a real way they will pray, fast, love and support you.
We don’t take that for granted at all and we want to thank you.

Let’s keep building the bear 🐻 family but also let’s build other people who maybe in need.

WE LOVE AND APPRECIATE YOU. LIVE 🦋 LOVE 💕 LAUGH 😂’
