Famers challenged to join Cooperatives Union

The only way to eliminate poverty in our homes and our lives is by joining the cooperatives movement Uasin Gishu Deputy Governor H.E Hon Daniel Chemno has said.

Speaking during a mobilization meeting at Kabenes, the Deputy Governor said that when cooperatives come together riches will follow the societies and unions.

He said that woe unto any farmer who will at the end of this year be asking the government to come in their aid yet the administration has given them an opportunity to join Cooperatives unions.

“Let every household do soul searching on this matter of MoiSoy,” said the DG.

“You have our support as cooperatives sector,” The DG added.

The Deputy County boss said that the farmers have no choice but to join the movement for them to get profits, challenging members who have joined the union not to listen to any negative voice that may derail their quest to construct the first-ever cooperative owned milling plant in Uasin Gishu County.

On her part, Cooperatives County Executive Committee Member Ms. Esther Mutai disclosed that her department would continue empowering people through cooperatives.

“We have no other duty other than what we are doing now.” Said Ms. Mutai.

She said that the enterprise development fund has given the Cooperatives union a total of Ksh. 200 Million to support the project as a loan.

She thanked the members of MoiSoy Cooperatives Union for onward progression and commitment they have shown in implementing the vision.

She asked parents to whip their children to join the movement as this was the only way of immersing wealth together.

Finance and Economic Planning CECM CPA Julius Rutto, praised the constitution that brought devolution that has propelled development at the lowest level.

Cooperatives Chief Officer Pius Kigen said that the department is committed to supporting the sector.

Soy Sub-County Administrator Kipchumba Barno said that grass root mobilization would continue so as to have as many members as possible.

“Your Excellency our performance contracting is measured on the grass root mobilization and I want to assure you our commitment as local administrators,” Said the administrator.

Individual members can buy a share at Ksh. 5000 and to a maximum of 10 shares.

Civil works of the milling plant is expected to be completed by August 2019.
