By Malachi Motano

Saccos in the country are owed nearly 4 billion shillings in non-remittance of deductions from members. According to the Kenya union of cooperatives (Kuscco) managing director George Ototo, the 3.8 billion is largely owed by government linked institutions

The convention also noted that the sector has also been affected by loan restructuring carried out last year due to the covid-19 pandemic, leading to low liquidity
