Brian’s task involved site visits to the law firms and organisations that had been shortlisted for the awards to evaluate them and verify the information that had been previously submitted by the applicants through a questionnaire.

Brian together with three other assessors participated in the assessment stage after which they presented their assessment reports to a jury panel for final determination of the awardees.

Brian Tororei who was able to assess four (4) of the seven (7) shortlisted organisations says that the Nairobi Legal Awards 2017-18 was a success. He says the Gala Night that went down on 26 April 2018 exceeded his expectations.

The collaboration between IBM Research and Twiga Foods has seen the launch of a business-to-business logistics platform for kiosks and food stalls in Africa.

The platform is a financial inclusion service targeting the Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises (SMEs) which often have difficulties accessing financing given that most SMEs are characterised by lack of collateral to be used as security.

The platform is mobile based and employs machine learning capabilities to assess the applicants’ credit worthiness thus boosting lender confidence, the absence of which has also contributed to the would-be-extinct financial exclusion of SMEs.

Given the success of the pilot, the platform is likely to see further and wider deployments across Africa in the coming months.
