MY SUPPORT FOR COOPERATIVE

My names are Professor Henry M. Bwisa, a full professor of entrepreneurship
at the Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology. I was
chairman Kenya Investment Authority between 2003 (IPC) to 2010. I treasure
the cooperative movement and went around the country with the then minister
Nyaga in his last year in office promoting the movement. I have sold the
country's cooperative movement abroad.

I strongly think that we should not erase the word COOPERATIVE from the
vocabulary of our ministerial terms. Kindly find attached my original
article which was edited and published in the current Governor's diary.

Yours patriotic citizen

KENYA: COUNTIES NEED INDUSTRIAL CLUSTERS

 Some of Kenya’s counties have potential to start industrial clusters. Take the county of Bungoma

          Bungoma is 3,032.2 square kilometers. This area holds about 1375063 people of which 48% are male and 52% women with a very high age dependency ratio of 93.8.

          The county is agricultural with the mainstay being maize and sugar cane although potential for other crops including oil crops can be said to be largely virgin.  If maize is harvested only once a year (with relatively low returns especially for small scale farmers) then sugar cane takes 18 months to mature with payment hiccups. Zero grazing is slowly but steadily picking up.  Our casual research shows that to be profitable maize farming must be done on a minimum of 10 acres. Bungoma's population growth rate currently standing at 4.3% has led to land subdivisions with the average landholding being less than half of 10 acres. This may partially explain why 53 % of Bungoma’s population lives below poverty line.

KENYA: A GUIDE TO COUNTY STRATEGIC PLANNING

KENYA: A GUIDE TO COUNTY STRATEGIC PLANNING

What is Strategic Planning?

Everybody who was running for a position in Kenya’s just concluded elections had a plan i.e. a look into the future and the goal was to win. Every one of them planned regardless of the level of planning because consciously or unconsciously every one knew that if they failed to plan they would be planning to fail.  In order for them to succeed, each laid down a roadmap for success. The map helped to provide direction and focus for the entire campaign team. Specific results to be achieved e.g. number of votes to get in order to win were estimated and a course of action to achieve these winning votes was established. This roadmap helped the various campaign teams and sub teams to align themselves with common goals including:

·                   Building a competitive advantage

·                   Communicating the manifesto to the populace

·                   Prioritizing  campaign  financial needs

·                   Providing  focus and direction to move from plan to action

Those who ended up winning must have had a better roadmap than those who failed although in any given contest there eventually must be a winner and losers.

THOUGHT

Entrepreneurship is the practice of starting new organizations or revitalizing mature organizations, particularly new businesses generally in response to identified opportunities. Entrepreneurship is often a difficult undertaking, as a vast majority of new businesses fail.
