Friday June 26, 2020 – Law Society of Kenya President, Nelson Havi, has poured cold water on the imprisonment of Sirisia MP, John Walukhe, and businesswoman Grace Wakhungu over the Sh 313 million heist at the National Cereals and Produce Board (NCPB).
Waluke and Wakhungu were fined over Sh700 million or face seven years in prison after they were found guilty of fraud of over Sh313 million maize scandal.
After the ruling by Magistrate Elizabeth Juma on Thursday, Havi took to social media claiming that the ruling was ‘criminal’.
“John Waluke and Grace Wakhungu contracted with NCPB.”
“NCBP breached the contract.”
“Arbitrator ordered payment.”
“Award was enforced by the High Court,” Havi said.
“NCPB lost before the High Court and Court of Appeal and paid the decree.”
“How can that be a crime?”
“Do not celebrate fraudulent convictions.”
The LSK boss went on to say that they will take action on the Magistrate.
“…we have had a Judge removed from office for similar misbehavior.”
“We know what to do and will do it with military precision,” he said.
