Speaking during the Blockchain for Business Event at Strathmore University, Onyango mentioned the taskforce was looking at taking along everybody in the process hence the reason to engage with the various regulators and stakeholders.

“We engaged with CBK, KRA, and CMA […] we wanted to carry everybody onboard throughout our discussion. One of the things we strongly pushed for was the creation of sandboxes.” Said Onyango.
