Koinange Street to test CCN E-Payment

03 September 2012, 11:58 Rogers Momata

Coming just a week after its inception, the City Council of Nairobi (CCN) automation service systems aimed at improving revenue collection in the city, has now welcomed mobile network company Orange on board.

Orange now becomes the third player to team up with Yu mobile alongside Airtel, in a move aimed at enhancing convenience via an electronic payment system so as to mitigate the issues of corruption which have for long proved to be a thorn in the flesh in the management of City Council of Nairobi.

A pilot phase expected to last for an approximated period of three months, is set to commence on Koinange Street. Implementation of the system would see motorists parking along the street be the first to experience the newly introduced electronic mode of payment for their parking tickets by use of their phones.

On patrol would be Council inspectors who would be out and about to ensure full compliance of the stipulated new rules.

While addressing the media during the launch early today, Ms. Ogot, an official in the Council said, “We look forward to make the services friendlier and enhance on efficiency for all Nairobi motorists.”

To register for this electronic service, motorists are urged to send a short message to the number 3032 with an inclusion of their ID number, Surname and last name. Instructions and easy to follow steps would be availed in form of text messages to enable one to register.

The City Council of Nairobi also intends to educate the general public on how the system functions and how they can make use of the new service.
