Teachers have vowed to quit Mwalimu National Sacco in masses after the former giant Sacco reduced the dividends payable on the teachers’ savings to 9.3%.
Teachers became bitter and teamed up in social media to start the journey of quitting the Sacco citing mass corruption by the Sacco directors.
The delegates had pledged not to approve the budget until the dividends are paid at least 12%. They accused bribery of a section of some delegates by the Sacco directors to approve the budget.
Members have now resolved to leave and join other young but well-performing Saccos such as WINAS and STIMA Sacco.
