Mwalimu National SACCO Dividends 2023; How to Calculate your dividends at Mwalimu National SACCO 2022-2023
Teachers and shareholders at the Mwalimu National SACCO are a happy lot after their financial partner Mwalimu National SACCO announced the remittance of dividends for the 2022-2023 fiscal year.
In March 2022, the Mwalimu National management team declared a rate of 9.3% on teachers’ deposits made from January 2021 to December 2022 on a pro-rata basis.
The management also exempted capital shares of 20,000 during the calculation of dividends.
Instead, the management team raised capital shares from 20,000 to 30,000 claiming that SACCO has been struggling to stand on its feet recently.
Why Mwalimu National SACCO offered teachers low dividends in 2021
This is the third time the management has declared dividends calculation rate that is below par given that teachers have invested heavily in the SACCO.
The management on many occasions has shifted blame and pointed fingers at spire bank which has been counting huge losses since 2015 and Kisaju park houses that are yet to be sold.
However, from the conversation that was going on on WhatsApp between a delegate and a member supervisory team whom the name is withheld to avoid victimization, there is a likelihood that teachers’ money is being swindled by the Sacco management team.
“My brother, delegates didn’t want anything less than what was declared for the financial year 2019, but the directors ganged with the supervisory board and senior MNS staff and hid behind Sasra to con teachers,” Onyambu revealed.
