Kenya’s Ajua Acquires AI and ML Company WayaWaya

Kenyan consumer experience platform for businesses in Africa, Ajua today announced that it has acquired WayaWaya, a Kenya-based AI and ML messaging and payments company, to consolidate consumer experience in African SMEs. The two companies, however, did not disclose the financial details of the acquisition.

The acquisition, according to Ajua, is primarily based on WayaWaya’s Janja payment bots system. The platform, which has customers like Airtel and Ezee Money, allows for borderless banking and payments through apps and social media channels.

WayaWaya’s CEO and Founder, Teddy Ogallo, joins Ajua as VP of Product APIs and Integrations.
