It is at this juncture, to operationalize the National Cooperative Bill, that, we invite you as the Co-operative leaders to give your views and further input on developing regulations at the Amboseli National Park Oltukai Lodge on 30th March to 1St April, 2022. The occasion will be graced by the Cabinet Secretary for Agriculture, livestock, Fisheries and Co-operatives Hon. Peter Munya. During the stay we shall have an in-depth discussion on the Co-operative Societies’ regulations and other legislation reforms that have impact on the Co-operative business sector, in terms of bringing in good governance and providing regulatory framework that will help nurture the sector into the future.
