Many members of Kenya Qatar Diaspora Sacco Society have been complaining about mismanagement of their funds, a move that has since forced the government to gazette investigations.
A notice posted in last Friday’s Gazette by acting commissioner for Co-operative Development Geoffrey Njang’ombe said the investigation is expected to take two weeks and a report filed with his office.
The sacco management, who have offices in Nairobi and Qatar was founded by the con automotive engineer and churchman Habakuk Wamududa (chairman), pastor Emmanuel Mbadi (vice chairman), with engineer Boniface Mbugua serving as treasurer. It is expected to provide books for audit.
“I authorise assistant director of co-operative audit Nelson Nyaga and principal co-operative officer Fenn Nzovu, both from Nairobi to hold an inquiry into operations of the Kenya Qatar Diaspora Sacco Society within fifteen days,” read the notice.
In 2018, Kenyans living abroad sent home Sh2.7 billion with a further Sh1.44 billion coming in between January to June this year.
