Kenya's former national assembly speaker kicked out of national electricity distributor board

The once respected National Assembly speaker has hit a new low after losing the job.

Mr Marende, the immediate former KP board chairman, was ejected during elections held at the company's annual general meeting.

Mr Marende polled a paltry 2,323,366 votes, behind Mrs Zipporah Jesang Kering finished third with 978,692,508.

The top two candidates were Mr Mahboub Maalim Mohamed who garnered 979,253,302 votes to finish top ahead of Mr Adil Khawaja who garnered 978,978,742 votes.

A statement from the Kenya Power company secretary Beatrice Meso said Mr Mohamed, Mr Khawaja and Mrs Kering will take up the three vacant positions on the board.

Mr Marende earned a salary of Sh255,000 per month or an annual take-home of Sh3.07 million.

The results mark a new low for the once respected National Assembly speaker who while at KP, earned a salary of Sh255,000 per month or an annual take-home of Sh3.07 million. This is in stark contrast to what he earned while in parliament (up to Sh1.32 million a month) when he served as Speaker between 2008 and 2013.
