A video of Sirisia MP John Waluke confessing to journalists that he takes bribes in Parliament has resurfaced online.
In the video, Waluke says that receiving bribes in parliament is a usual ‘thing’ as MPs are occasionally bribed to approve or disapprove Bills.
He further said that MPs receive bribes ranging between KSh 100,000 to KSh 200,000 depending on the task ahead with MPs in committees being the most bribed.
“All of us have received something, I think we need to be honest…Sometimes we receive KSh 100,000 0r KSh 200, 000, it depends…Even you can you refuse money? It is only God who cannot,” he said.
At the time when he made the confession, a report indicating the presence of contraband sugar in the country was rejected by MPs who were allegedly bribed.
The lawmaker who was found guilty of defrauding the National Cereals and Produce Board (NCPB) 313 million was on Thursday, June 25 sentenced to 10 years in prison or pay a fine of KSh 727 million.
