@dkmaraga courts are unbelievable. You steal 46 million; you released for 4 million….less than 10% of the whole loot! Should be 50 million to deter future theft. Dissappointed. Selesio Karanja

This Selesio Karanja loots 46M,
He's penanced 4M, balance left after penance is 42M. This simply means steal more and you safe but steal less and you rot in custody

The Option of Fine should be removed in all corruption related cases.
Selesio Karanja should serve his term AND pay the Fine.

Selesio Karanja rides home with 47.3 million stolen and told to pay a fine of 4million. meanwhile, a lawmaker in Ghana put the image of a corruption operative on TV because of exposing rot in football. He was later assassinated. So sad.

Selesio Karanja has just got away with the loot he took from the public coffers! Obviously after stealing 47.3M he cant fail to pay 4M fine! When you steal, go for huge/large sums of money. You will pay a "small" fine,be free and then join politics to protect your loot!

If I will only serve 4 years in prison to steal anything more than 100 million, I will do it then wait four years to enjoy my loot. I won't be able to amass that much in 4 years even with a salary of 1 million bob. who wants to work hard? Selesio Karanja
