KUSCCO director David Ogega has said that high leadership turnover was killing Saccos in the Nyanza region.
Ogega who was speaking during Taraji Sacco’s 40th AGM held in Siaya recently, advised various Sacco members to consider maintaining leadership so as to guarantee steady growth.
“Nyanza region Saccos faces a high rate of leadership turnover, we replace leaders in every election cycle and begin afresh. If we give leaders ample time to implement their strategic plans we are assured of improvements and this is happening in many Saccos in other regions that perform excellently,” said Ogega.
