On Friday, October 7, the local newspapers highlighted the cases in the corridors of justice, with graft suspects being dealt blows in their respective cases.

One of the newspapers highlighted a specific case in which a man's appeal was thrown away after; his wife disappeared from a Kakamega hospital with "their" newborn baby in the company of another man.
The newspaper spotlighted the plight of a man who was expecting a baby with his wife.
Identified by the court as SMW, the man had in 2018 escorted his wife to the St Mary's Hospital's maternity wing in Mumias, Kakamega county, where she safely delivered a baby boy.

However, when SMW showed up at the facility to pick up his wife and the newborn, he was informed that another man, named Echesa, had left with them.

SMW was also informed that the newborn had been registered in Echesa's name.
The heartbroken man faulted the hospital for releasing the mother and the baby without informing him.
He thus instituted a legal suit against the hospital seeking compensation; his case was, however, thrown out.
In 2020, he moved to the High Court with the same prayers, the fate of the case mirroring that of the Mumias Senior Magistrate Court, where he initially filed the suit.
Unsatisfied by the High Court verdict on the matter, the man moved to the appellate court, which also threw away the case.
Justices Patrick Kiage, Mumbi Ngugi and Francis Tuiyott, all of the appellate court, dismissed the case on grounds of being unmeritorious in law.
The daily also camped in the courtroom where the fate of Sirisia MP John Waluke was determined.
The lawmaker, who had been jailed for 67 years with an option of a KSh 2 billion fine for defrauding the National Cereals and Produce Board (NCPB), lost the appeal he had filed against the High Court ruling.

The penalty was imposed on him over the KSh 313 million NCPB scandal.
On Thursday, October 6, High Court Judge Esther Maina said the charges against Waluke and his co-accused, Grace Wakhungu, before trial by Magistrate Elizabeth Juma were proved beyond a reasonable doubt.
According to Maina, the sentence was not excessive and was within the law for the trial magistrate to impose the sentence.
"The sentences were not excessive. They are within the law. The conviction and sentences are affirmed, and the appellant will have to pay those fines or serve the default terms," the judge ruled.
While dismissing the appeal, the judge established that the invoices presented by Waluke, over which they received millions for the NCPB, were a forgery.

Waluke was out on a KSh 10 million bail granted by Justice John Oyiengo, who had ruled that there were no sufficient grounds to deny the lawmaker bail after the lawmaker spent three months in police custody.
The publication highlighted the new headache of firmer Kipipiri MP Amos Kimunya, whose determined land graft case was again brought to life by the court.
The High Court overturned the acquittal of Kimunya in the KSh 60 million graft case.
On Thursday, October 6, the court ruled that Kimunya was wrongly freed over insufficient evidence.
The ex-majority leader of the National Assembly was charged in a land graft case.
Justice Esther Maina of the High Court Anti-Corruption division ruled that the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Noordin Haji had established a strong case.
The judge said the accused persons should have been put in a defence.

The judge ordered Kimunya and his co-accused, former director of land adjudication Lillian Njenga to present themselves before Chief Magistrate Lawrence Mugambi on Tuesday, October 11, 2022, to defend themselves.
The judge said a warrant of arrest would be issued if they ignored the summon.
The Swahili newspaper highlighted the happenings in the National Assembly, where Kenya Kwanza was taking on Azimio La Umoja over the majority side in the August House.
Speaker Moses Wetang'ula, on Thursday, October 6, pronounced the majority coalition in the 13th parliament.
Wetang'ula declared President William Ruto led Kenya Kwanza Alliance as the majority party in the 13th parliament.
Citing some submissions tabled before the House by leaders from Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition party and Kenya Kwanza Alliance, the Speaker said the argument that Azimio had no basis in law and fact.
