Daily Nation (Kenya) - - COUNTY - BY MARY WAMBUI

Ki­ambu Gover­nor Fer­di­nand Waititu has dis­solved the man­age­ment of Gatundu South Dairy Farm­ers Co­op­er­a­tive So­ci­ety and or­dered fresh elec­tions fol­low­ing claims of em­bez­zle­ment of funds.

He gave the direc­tive dur­ing the launch of the re­vamped so­ci­ety's dairy plant in Ki­ganjo after farm­ers shared their dis­sat­is­fac­tion with the man­ner in which their com­mit­tee had been man­ag­ing their af­fairs.

The farm­ers de­cried mis­man­age­ment of the firm, say­ing they had been sell­ing milk through bro­kers due to de­layed pay­ments.

They ac­cused the man­age­ment of ob­tain­ing a Sh7.5 mil­lion loan with­out the ap­proval of mem­bers, adding that the money was mis­used.

Mr Waititu or­dered the cur­rent and for­mer so­ci­ety of­fi­cials to record state­ments with po­lice on how the loan was ac­quired and spent.
