“As we use this platform in this ecosystem to drive financial inclusion we also have the protection and the stability of the financial system in mind so that whatever we do is geared towards protecting the consumer,” he added.

He explained that the launch of the mobile interoperability platform brings the country’s payment system under a new area which requires the needed legislation to protect consumers.
