The furor among Kenyans with the controversial Worldcoin saw at least Sh2.5 billion injected into the economy and withdrawn through M-Pesa by Kenyans who had their eyes scanned by the crypto-currency project firm, Worldcoin.
It emerged during a parliamentary committee hearing that by the time the government suspended the company’s activities, neither the National Treasury nor security agencies had flagged the transactions as suspicious.
The government of Kenya denied licensing or clearing the proprietors of Worldcoin.
Central Bank of Kenya Governor Kamau Thugge appearing before a Parliament ad hoc committee disclosed that the CBK had no knowledge of Worldcoin’s activities in the country.
He said CBK did not flag the Sh2.5 billion because M-Pesa handles large volumes of cash daily.
