Pinky Ghelani: Here is what I have to say about Wilkings. I was introduced to him by Suzie Wokabi and he had said that he is the Kenyan rep for LinkedIn. I have since learnt that he was impersonating me on LinkedIn. I am seeking legal counsel so therefore am unable to say more #wilkinsfadhili
Lily Ndirangu: But how does a reputable corporate like @SafaricomPLC sign up mentors and influencers without vetting and verifying them? #wilkinsfadhili
Wangechi Kenya: Mimi the only story I have of Wilkins Fraudhili is wondering why a millionaire worth the same shoes throughout the Blaze 2016 summits.
