Sirisia MP John Walukes salary has been suspended by the National Assembly after trial Magistrate Elizabeth Juma directed so.
Further, properties belonging to both MP John Waluke and Grace Wakhungu will be repossessed for auction in the event the two fail to pay their fines to court.
MP John Waluke is facing 67 years jail term while his co-accused Grace Wakhungu is facing a jail term of 69 years should they fail to pay their total fines amounting to sh 2.4 billion.
The anti-corruption court convicted the two directors of Erad Supplies and General Contractors for having swindled public monies through dubious contracts.
Reports have also reached out desk showing how already the Director of Public prosecution DPP is now putting up measures to auction their properties for recovrey of the fines if they will not have paid.
“Going forward, we will not only ensure that individuals are jailed.”
“We will also recover money lost from public coffers,” the Prosecutor stated.
Anti-corruption Chief Magistrate Juma’s ruling to suspend Waluke’s salary was based on Section 63 of the Anti-Corruption and Economic Crimes Act which states that a public officer who is convicted of corruption or economic crime shall be suspended without pay with effect from the date of the conviction pending the outcome of any appeals.
The public officer ceases to be suspended if the conviction is overturned on appeal.
