Chato co-operative society under investigation

TANZANIA Co-operative Development Commission (TCDC) has set up a special team to investigate the assets of Chato Agricultural Marketing Cooperative Society (AMCOS) to identify the actual value of lost co-operative’s assets.

This was stated earlier this week by TCDC Registrar, Dr Benson Ndiege during an exclusive interview with the Sunday News in Geita region after attending a regional women forum aimed at forming a regional women co-operative.

Dr Ndiege said so far TCDC has taken action in response to media reports and complaints about the loss of some of the assets, including tractors.

"In areas where there are complaints we will form a special team to investigate. Once we sense something is not right, we will go deeper by inspecting and taking legal action,” he said.

In early April this year, Chato Amcos Chairman, Mr Deogratius Didi acknowledged the loss of tractors belonging to the society, and cited the reason for the loss as lack of certificate of ownership.

Speaking during the forum, Chato District Commissioner, Ms Martha Mkumpasi urged women to run their co-operatives professionally to avoid embezzlement of the co-operative assets.
