I will fill this so that you also give productive input. However, I must
ask on behalf of everyone else here, you chaired a taskforce on AI and
Blockchain here in Kenya several years ago, what were the findings of that

I feel this is where we go wrong. Why are we contributing on European
frameworks when we cannot give Kenyans insight on what taxpayer funded
initiatives  here have done? Shouldn't you be asking us to give our views
on what your taskforce came up with?
