Both Kathleen and Rwakakakamba raised a critical point about cooperatives becoming political foot balls. But these issues and tendencies could always be ironed out with effective institutional design accompanied with checks and balances and term limits. the incentives to become political must be eroded within the institutional design, and rents must only be sought from improving the welfare of the farmers, thus incentive structures must be well thought out.
