JamboPay, according to their website, is an online payment gateway that allows users to securely make and receive payments through mobile phone over internet.

According to the Bunge La Wananchi chairman Henry Shitanda, Jambo Pay – Web tribe Ltd. has been conducting illegal transactions in relation to signed contracts with the county government.

”Despite numerous requests by the County Governments to have the servers located at Nairobi City Hall, the prayers have landed on deaf ears,” reads court papers.

They now want the court to restrain Jambo Pay from conducting operations in regard to Nairobi City County until the servers are located at Nairobi City County for supervisions.

They also want the respondents stopped from conducting business in the County until their audit report has been submitted to the county government and the Auditor General for scrutiny.

Further, the petitioners claim that Danson Muchemi and Robert Murithi have declined Nairobi County Government’s access to the servers for confirmation of the day to day activity in regard to payments made.

“The two have neglected the public procurement and disposal act 2005 and have gone forth to charge an excess amount (4.5%)against the said Act,” reads the papers.
