When we identified the cost of living and the cost of finance as the twin issues that affect many Kenyans, I was moved and I discussed this with the leadership of The Clean Kenya Campaign-TCKC. I was invited on Radio and I gave our presentation which captured the attention of many people.
Many people across Kenya called me and many decided to join hands with me. We at TCKC then decided to form Kimisho Community Development Network as a vehicle through which we would mobilize willing members towards our Economic Empowerment Programme as we work towards forming a Sacco Society.
I was impressed when the initial membership sent their Registration Fee through my phone. We had Kimisho Registered in May and duly opened an account for the same at KCB Kipande House Branch. I then instructed all our Members to stop sending their Registration Fee through my Phone and instead, to send the same through our Bank Accounts which I made public.
I am happy many did that, and as I write, we have placed a caveat on the same account because we want to now isolate the Sacco Shares and the Investment Savings and place them in the right accounts. Kimisho Sacco Society Ltd has duly also been Registered and a Management Committee elected to run her affairs. We have passed all the necessary documents to the District Co-operative Officer- Embakasi and we are now awaiting the opening of the Sacco Bank Account which we will duly inform all our Members. Kimisho Savings Society Ltd is open to all our Members who want to save, wait for six months and borrow three times what they have saved. We will be strict with this since we want to comply with the Sacco Regulations to the letter.

Secondly, we had promised to present Kshs 50,000.00 to the Gor Mahia Players if they win the 2013 KPL League. They have done so, and now, I am inviting willing Friends and Members to help us raise this ammount for onward transmission to the Gor Mahia Players. I want to sincerely thank the following Friends for indicating their support;
- Mr. Odhiambo T Oketch- Kshs 2,000.00
- Dr Korir Singoei- Kshs 2,000.00
- Ms Elizabeth Ouda- Kshs 1,000.00
- Rev Samuel Oketch,
- Hon John Omondi Ogutu,
- Ms Millicent Ogwel
- Mr. Ricky Omondi
At the same time, we have opened offices for The Clean Kenya Campaign- TCKC at Buru Buru Business Complex, and from the 1st of November 2013, we will be rolling out our Table Banking Initiative and the Investment Club.
We are happy with the many Members who have been calling me seeking directions and the way forward. I am also happy with the Members who have started Registering for our Table Banking Initiative and the Investment Club.
It will never be easy, and I want to confirm to all our Members that we at The Clean Kenya Campaign-TCKC are committed to our ideals. We talked about our Economic Empowerment, Revival and Transformation and this is exactly what we are delivering to our Members.
As a consequence, all Sacco matters will be handled by the Management Committee for Kimisho Sacco Society Ltd, and we at The Clean Kenya Campaign-TCKC will continue with our other programmes.
We will be circulating the account number for the Sacco as soon as we have it. We will then transfer all the moneys we have at KCB and Co-op Bank to either the Sacco Account or to The Clean Kenya Campaign accounts for the Investment Club.
Lastly, all those who want to join us in our Economic Empowerment, Revival and Transformation are free to do so by paying a non-refundable Registration Fee of Kshs 500.00 through our Barclays Bank Account. You can write to me or call me for details.
Remember, this is your chance to drive your own affairs. The Clean Kenya Campaign-TCKC only lends you a shoulder to lean on.
