Kenyans have however expressed disappointment in the sentencing calling it too lenient with many wishing graft criminals would be jailed forever.
Very lenient sentence. These guys are millionaires. They pay the ridiculous fine and get away with having stolen millions in other cases.
Have they been dismissed from the county?

That sentence is ridiculous. Any corruption should be decades in jail. They will easily pay that tiny fine…
