TI-Kenya Concerned About the Enforcement of Chapter Six

Transparency International Kenya is concerned about the commitment of the President and Parliament to the enforcement of Chapter Six of the Constitution of Kenya.

In a statement released on 23rd July 2018, TI-Kenya faults the the President for nominating Dr. Ben Chumo as Chairperson of the Salaries and Remuneration Commission considering his integrity was put to question. It further questions parliament for going ahead to vet Dr. Chumo with full knowledge of criminal proceedings against him.

“The nomination of Dr. Chumo to Chair the Salaries and Remuneration Commission (SRC) raises serious questions on the due diligence carried out on individuals before being nominated for public office. The nominating authority, in this case, the President, failed to ensure that only persons without serious questions of integrity are nominated. Considering the means of assessment available to the President, it is surprising that omissions of this significance would still happen. Even after the nominee has been charged in court, the President should have rescinded the nomination.” reads part of the statement.
