The Google employees involved in this Getting Kenyan Businesses Online project were probably just thinking about their precious bonuses when they chose to lie about Google's relationship with Mocality. The employees caught lying on tape will be fired and any employees who don't pretend to know nothing about this will be fired also. Google has a brand to nurture and so they'll be appropriately apologetic as they always are when they cross boundaries in their pursuit of corporate domination.
However, the Mocality blog moans about how Google manually scraped their database; this is legal as pointed out in an earlier comment.
The blog's claim that Google is offering competing services isn't even accurate because all Mocality does is list websites, not host them... so what does Mocality expect to win from Google?
