Moreover, our objective is to drive benefit for the Kenyan ecosystem by merging our solution stack, with the signature services to offer a ready, usable, and value generating solution for our clients in Kenya”, says Arvind Srinivasan, the Senior VP for Global Markets and Strategy at eMudhra.
Being a licensed E-CSP in Kenya, eMudhra has complied with all the relevant local laws and now all businesses, citizens and government agencies in the country have a fully TRUSTED source to procure Digital Signature Certificates for their specific use-cases.
