Former Kenya Power Managing Director Ben Chumo’s nomination as chairman for Salaries and Remuneration Commission has been rejected by the Parliamentary Finance Committee over integrity issues.

Chumo appeared before the committee on Monday where he told legislators that corruption charges against him should not stand in the way of his getting the SRC job.

The former MD who is being charged alongside 18 other Kenya Power officials including the now suspended MD Dr Ken Tarus is being accused for being responsible for the loss of Sh4.5 billion in the procurement of faulty transformers.

But Chumo told the committee that “there was no single case that arose during my stay at KPLC and I look back with a lot of pride to that particular service.”
