BY MERCY JAOKO,
Matatu operators in Bondo town and Savings and Credit Co-operative societies (Saccos) known as BODCO were at logger heads over the management of the public toilet at Bondo Bus Park.
The Matatu operators led by Paul Otieno Okelo locked the toilet due to alleged mismanagement of the facility and misappropriation of funds by the leadership of that Sacco called BODCO.
Speaking during their meeting at the Bondo CDF hall, the Matatu operators demanded that the management of that facility be removed from the hands of the Sacco that had been running it for the last five years.
Maurice Juma Chore lamented that they were the ones who had put the management of that public toilet in the hands of the Sacco after winning the tender but as members, they had never seen any proceeds from the running of that facility, arguing that the officials of that Sacco had turned the facility into their personal asset.
The matatu operators drown from 8 routes including Siaya, Usenge, Misori, Nairobi, Sirongo, Liunda, Guba, Caltex and Wii Thur stated that they had already dawn a duty roster that will see each route managing the public toilet in shifts after every one week so that the facility can benefit them.
