The Bank of Kigali has appointed a former Paystack executive as its Chief Digital Officer. Obinna Ukwuani, a Nigerian tech veteran, will lead the bank’s Digital Factory Division for product innovation and development in Digital Banking, a role he has been working on since June.

Mr Ukwuani grew up in Washington DC, graduating with honours in High School and going on to earn a degree in Economics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
