Days of spending too much money on rent and parking are set to end for Nairobi residents. This come as the Nairobi County Government switched to e-payments for its services such as Matatu seasonal ticketing and rent collection for its estates and market stalls.

Speaking when the e-payment module went live, Dr. Evans Kidero, the Nairobi City County Governor said e-payment for land rates and Single Business Permit were already operational and had helped ease long queues at City Hall.

“We have activated this system today and it is accessible to Nairobi residents intending to pay for seasonal parking or rent through their mobile phone handsets, authorized banks and agents, Huduma Centers at Teleposta Towers, City Square Post Office and Makadara County Offices (formerly DC’s office) and from a link on the county’s web portal,” said Dr Kidero.

Matatus and tenants can use the service through the web portal: or through a USSD option *217# for basic level phones or mobile application for those with smartphones.

The e-payment solution came in partnership with JamboPay.
