By David Indeje / July 14, 2017

Tangazoletu Ltd, a Kenyan ICT firm celebrates its ten years of existence in delivering sustainable innovations and business solutions.

It was founded ten years ago in a local university when Chris Gathingu, the founder, was still a student. The company grew to be a success story in the Financial Technology space having worked with Safaricom Limited as an innovation partner to innovate and grow M-Pesa.

The company is credited for services such as Lipa Na M-Pesa, Sure Pay, and M-PESA online among others.

It also developed SpotCash, a solution used by most of the leading Saccos in Kenya, among other financial technology solutions.

“These moments are the continuous reminders of our purpose as an organisation, moments that are filled with the promise of a great tomorrow, great years to come, a confirmation of our worthwhile investment today for the future,” said Chris Gathingu in February.

Tangazo Letu is also the technology partner for the USAID funded TIBU system; a data collection, reporting, finance and payment solution used in monitoring and evaluation of TB care within the Ministry of Health Services in Kenya.
