The court has also ordered the two to surrender their passports and avoid traveling outside the country. They are also to present themselves in court once every month.

The court also directed the court’s deputy registrar to consult the Judiciary’s accounts office to determine whether the bonds the convicts had deposited at the lower court during trial had been released back after their imprisonment.

Should the registrar find the bonds are still being retained by the Judiciary, the same will be factored in when processing the fresh bails. During the criminal trial the two were out on a cash bail of Sh. 2 million each.

The trial court also imposed a combined fine of Sh. 2 billion. In default, Wakhungu was handed a 39-year sentence while the Sirisia MP was slapped with a 34-year sentence. John Waluke Appeal Case.
