From Kenya Power to another corporation, RUTO’s man thrown out of Stima Sacco’s board over this - You are as corrupt as your boss!


Tuesday March 26, 2019 - One of Deputy President William Ruto’s confidantes has been kicked out of the management of Stima Sacco.

According to Commissioner of Cooperatives, Mary Mungai, Ken Tarus, who is the former Kenya Power CEO was thrown out over corruption allegations facing him.

Tarus was sacked alongside former senior managers Beatrice Meso and Abubakar Swaleh Sharif.

“I suspended the three in accordance with the law, section 28:7 of the Cooperative Societies Act.”

“The annual General meeting of the Sacco can give directions in line with the Act on how to move forward when such cases arise,” Mungai said.

Tarus was charged alongside his predecessor, Ben Chumo, and 12 others with conspiracy to defraud the parastatal of over Ksh 409 million.

They reportedly purchased substandard transformers from Muwa Trading Company. 

The officials have also been accused of aiding the fraudulent acquisition of Ksh 202 million as payment for the supply of the transformers.

Tarus is a close confidante of Deputy President William Ruto who is regarded as the “high priest of corruption in Kenya”.
