Jogoo Sacco society was formed in 1972 by the department of Immigration and given the name of Uhamiaji. It was registered under CS No. 1990 and came into existence along with other Sacco’s that had been formed. The directors were mainly drawn from Immigration department and conserved the membership only in the ministry that hosted the department. In March 1980 eight years later Jogoo Sacco opened its membership to other ministries after the directors realized that the government had created more ministries and Immigration department could not sustain the Sacco.
Members were drawn from Ministry of Home Affairs, Police, Constitutional Affairs etc and was renamed Jogoo Sacco.
