Why ekeza sacco members have vowed to seek the help of Raila

Baba help us

Raila Odinga

Ekeza Sacco members on Monday vowed to seek the help of ODM leader Raila Odinga after they were turned away at the Directorate of Criminal Investigations headquarters in Nairobi.

The angered members of the sacco owned by Gakuyo, who claimed to have been defrauded of their money by the savings and cooperative group, appealed to Odinga to intervene into the matter after they alleged that President Uhuru Kenyatta had neglected them.

The huge number of Kenyans who had turned up at the DCI were met with a twist of event after police lobbed teargas canisters to disperse them.

The Ekeza Sacco members had blocked the Kiambu road in protest after they indicated that the DCI had not put measures into place on how to handle the large number of people who showed up.

The DCI had informed the members of the Gakuyo Real Estate, Ekeza Sacco and Gakuyo Investment Club to carry documents that supported their claims of the dealings.

Proposal to fine Gakuyo's estate Sh1 billion

Last Thursday, Gakuyo had moved to court to disregarded a proposal that wants his real estate firm fined Sh1 billion.

The recommendation was made by the cooperatives regulator in a bid to recover the money lost through Gakuyo’s Ekeza Sacco.

The savings and cooperative authorities had been given the go ahead to use all necessary means to get back the defaulted loans by the organisation.
