Edward Ndichu and his brother Paul Ndichu are counting losses after one of the investors in their company Wapi Pay withdrew their funding.
The investors Kepple Africa Venture, on Monday, revealed that they will withdraw their funding from the tech firm after its co-founders, the Ndichu brothers, were accused of assaulting women.
Paul and Eddie were captured on camera assaulting two women at Ole Sereni Hotel, Nairobi. According to one of the victims who spoke on social media, the two brothers allegedly assaulted her sister at the hotel after they (the women) declined sexual advances.
In the video that has since gone viral on social media, one of the brothers is seen breaking a side mirror of a vehicle parked outside the hotel before going back to the hotel to join his brother in ‘assaulting a woman.
Following the alleged incident, the Chinese investor revealed that they will cut ties with the company owned by the two brothers.
“In light of the alleged assault on women by the founders of our portfolio company Wapi Pay, we Kepple Africa Ventures hereby announce that we have zero tolerance on such conduct and announce that we will relinquish all the rights of our investment stake in Wapi Pay,“ the Chinese investor said in a tweet.
The action of the investor to disengage with the Wapi Pay is a big blow to the Ndichu brothers. This is because they are set to lose millions of shillings as the investor was part of a team that pulled US$2.2 million in pre-seed funding to help Wapi Pay to scale up its global market.
On their part, Paul and Eddie have distanced themselves from the assault allegations saying the viral video does not correctly show what transpired.
In a press statement released by their, Wapi Pay firm, the twin brothers noted that they do not support violence against women and that on the night of the incident, they did not assault any woman as widely claimed. According to them, they were only trying to neutralize a confrontation between two women who were fighting in the hotel.
“We are aware of a video and news story circulating on social media regarding an altercation with Eddie and Paul Ndichu, the company’s (Wapi Pay) co-founders on Saturday night.
“We found the story distasteful and troubling and want to firmly state that any type of behavior involving violence against women does not reflect our values nor does it reflect those of Eddie and Paul.
“Our understanding is that the allegations and video currently being shared on social media, albeit horrific and regrettable, do not depict the true events that transpired that night. To be clear, Paul and Eddie got involved in an attempt to neutralize a confrontation between two women and defend themselves from certain aggressors, ” they said in a statement.
They further noted that they have taken the matter to the police and that it is currently being investigated by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations.
