Attorney General Justin Muturi has said that Worldcoin has been operating in the country illegally.
The AG told the Ad hoc committee inquiring into its activities that Worldcoin is not registered as a business company for it to operate as required.
“Chair, from the information that we have, the name Worldcoin does not appear in the BRS database as a registered business company,” he said on Wednesday.
“This is contrary to the law which provides that all foreign companies must obtain registration.”
Similarly, he added, Tools for Humanity, a German-based company that is an affiliate of Worldcoin is also not registered as a business company locally.
