On the 18th April 2013, I was hosted at Radio Ramogi at 8am and at Radio Mayienga as from 9.20pm to Midnight. I was being interviewed on the way forward for Kenyans after the inauguration of Hon Uhuru Kenyatta as our 4th President.
Remember, when Uhuru Kenyatta was pronounced the winner, he called on Kenyans to go back to work and this was a message we at The Clean Kenya Campaign-TCKC took to heart. We have since looked at what role each one of us can play in building our economy and working for our Economic Empowerment and Poverty Eradication.

Many Kenyans heard my message on the two Radio Channels and the response was overwhelming. In the first week, we received calls and sms messages from almost 6,000 Kenyans. We took not of all the calles and all the messages and we are building on this.
I was invited again to the Two Radio Stations once more on the 25th April 2013 to help put our thoughts and discussions in to proper perspective and the second Talk Show gave birth to Kimisho Community Development Network- KCDN.
We called a meeting of all those who were interested in joining hands with us on the 4th May 2013 and KCDN was duly Registered on the 6th May 2013.On the same date, Members decided to form Kimisho Sacco Society Ltd and we invited an Officer from the Ministry of Cooperatives who came and talked with us.

We have since formed a Board of Directors and we have met all requirements that are by law established for the establishment of a Sacco. We are a team that believes in;
1 Environmental Management,
2 Economic Empowerment, and
3 Poverty Eradication.
And all Kenyans who believe in the same are invited to join with us. The Board will serve for a period of 3 years and they will be eligible for re-election.
We at The Clean Kenya Campaign-TCKC and now at KCDN do firmly believe that time has come for us not to ask Serikali itu saidie. We want to work hand in hand with the various arms of Government and any Friend who is willing to walk with us in this Journey of Hope across Kenya.
As has been our practice in the past, we will never respond to any calls for proposals, but we will work with partners who feel that we are doing the right thing.
We will fight for the right of all our Members to access affordable credit to empower their various businesses and we will join hands and pool our own resources to harness our own developments. We will engage in lots of sensitization and educational programmes across Kenya for the benefit of our Members and we will be inviting all of us to join our various Governors in working for a Clean Kenya by joining hands every 3rd Saturday of the Month in Massive Monthly Nationwide Clean up Campaigns.
We at KCDN are known to keep all the promises we make and this, we promise all our Members, we shall keep.
May the good Lord grant us his wisdom to navigate our national terrains in pursuit of Environmental Success, Economic Empowerment and Poverty Eradication amongst our midst. And may He inspire as many Kenyans to join with us in this Journey of Hope across our Land.
Peace and blessings to all God’s Bits of Wood.

Team Leader and Executive Director,
