“The Board of Directors of the Kenya Fintech Association (here is the Board of Directors”) is considering the alleged accidental allegations against our board member Eddie Ndichu following a dispute in the city hall on Saturday, October 17, 2021.
The allegations are now a topic of public debate, particularly on social media platforms.
On October 19, the board convened a special meeting in which Mr Ndichu resigned as a member of the board pending a formal investigation into the case.
The Council takes this opportunity to declare that it regrets the current situation and does not condone sexual violence or violence of any kind.
The association is still fully committed to its goal of ensuring greater integrity and advocating for the welfare of the fintech community and the technology industry as a whole. “
The announcement comes on the day Wapi Pay issued a statement, denying the allegations of two women that co-founders Eddie and Paul Ndichup attacked them at the Ole Sereni Hotel.
