Safaricom Investment Co-operative shareholders have approved a KES 142.4 million rebate payout during the 15th Annual General Meeting.

The payout comes after the Society reported a KES. 203.4 million in net profit for the year that ended 31st December 2023 against KES 266 million reported in the same period under review in 2022. The net profit represents an 8.1 percent return on the members’ capital of KES 2.5 billion.

The total revenue from land and housing for the society over the period stood at KES.1.5 billion, a decline from KES.1.8 billion recorded in 2022. Land business continues to be Safaricom Investment Co-operative’s biggest contributor to total revenue as it returned 90 percent of the total revenue delivering a gross revenue of KES 1.4 billion, with a net profit of KES 428.7 million in the same period. The housing unit on the other hand contributed KES 51.6 million to the total revenue.

“2023 was a year of great strides anchored on our 2023-2027 Strategic Plan with our success in automation, customer experience, and expansion of diaspora markets from the USA to Burundi, Uganda, Rwanda, South Sudan, Oman, and the United Kingdom as well as set up of new business lines through our e-commerce and value-added services while driving internal efficiencies,” said Safaricom Investment Co-operative Chairperson Judy Runo.

The Society’s core theme for 2024 will be building a sustainable operating model which will include rebranding the organization to position it for growth.

“Looking ahead, we remain cautiously optimistic about the future. We are committed to regaining our momentum and getting back on track with profitability through prudent financial management, operational efficiency, and strategic investments in areas with growth potential. By rebranding, we seek to align with emerging market trends in a move to ensure that the company’s image resonates with the values and expectations of the target audience, giving the brand a cutting edge. The rebranding exercise is a strategic move that will redefine our brand narrative, thus positioning us for future success. We have put together a roadmap with key focus areas lined up that will see the execution of a successful rebrand,” said Safaricom Investment Co-operative Chairperson Judy Runo.

The Chairperson also announced the exit of Safaricom Investment Co-operative CEO Sarah Wahogo who will be leaving to pursue her interests. During her tenure, Ms. Wahogo has been at the forefront in the automation of services, positioned the Society through strategic partnerships and brand-building efforts, re-energized member engagements and solidified Diaspora engagements as a key business focus, led the recruitment of a highly skilled management team and drove cost efficiencies across the business lines. The Finance Manager Stephen Mbugua will be the acting CEO as the Society undertakes the process of finding the next CEO to take up the Society’s mantle.
