Bicycle taxi riders in Rubavu district in cooperatives have expressed dismay over their fund of Rwf 12 million they suspect to have been misappropriated. Cyclist members of ‘Kora Ujya Mbere’ cooperative suspect their leaders to have diverted contributions prompting them to call for reforms.

“We don’t know where our contributions and fines were diverted to. We estimate Rwf 12 million to have been misappropriated,” said one cyclist.

Nuwimana Valens, the leader of cyclists’ cooperatives in Rubavu district denies the accusations of misallocating the fund saying cooperative members are just bent on tarnishing his image.

The deputy vice mayor for economic affairs in Rubavu district, Murenzi Janvier, says they were not aware of the matter but warned that they can’t tolerate whoever misallocates people’s funds.

“This matter is serious even though we were not aware of it. We were, too, wondering why bicycle riders were not making progress. We are going to approach them, help them and advise them. It is our responsibility. These cyclists have families to feed. If they are robbed, it affects their families and the economy. We will help them,” he promised.

This is shameful for the leaders of the cooperative ,being trusted by locals na d you go on embezzle their hard earned money, a foreinsic audit in their account books to determine who with drew all their money,Theo can only be achieved with the help of RNP which has no sides when it’s an issue of breaking the law

These cooperatives should set serious governing rules in their statutes in order to curb few individuals who use cooperative funds for individual use.Auditing tools should be regularly used where necessary seek public auditors to regularly control their revenues.Otherwise the culture of cooperatives has more advantages than disadvantages.
