“Philemon Kibiru has been mentioned by a number of scholars as one of the culprits in the Equity Bank/ Equity Group Foundation sexual harassment, abuse and assault,” says one of the members of the group, who seemingly was a victim.

Another one says, “If nothing else how some of us are thinking this Kibiru scandal is a reflection of how inadequately 8-4-4 prepares us for society (sic). Y’all are literally some of the smartest minds in the countries in careers spanning medicine, engineering, law, finance, policy (and) creative industry. I saw someone here ask whether it was really respectful toof us to be talking in this manner about someone who had helped us for all these years. Have you ever pondered on the weight of rape?”
