Irate residents of Sirisia Constituency, Bungoma County have taken to the streets to demonstrate over the imprisonment of their MP John Waluke of the Jubilee Party.

On Wednesday morning the angry residents accused the government on witch hunting Waluke because of his political affiliation.

“Our MP should not be harassed by the new government. Sirisia people gave 70% votes to this government. Our MP is not a thief, he was a business person, the case is a witch hunt.
