Big news on the digital frontier! The government has declared that it’s time to bring all payments for government services into the 21st century. Say goodbye to those long queues and hello to the eCitizen digital payment platform!
Picture this: you need to pay for a government service, be it your shiny new passport or that pesky parking fine. Instead of fumbling around with cash or standing in line forever, you can now make your payments through the official paybill number 222222. Easy peasy, right? Treasury Cabinet Secretary Njuguna Ndung’u is all about making our lives simpler and more convenient, and this Digital Payments Programme is his brainchild.
So, how does it work? Well, according to the wise words of Prof Ndung’u in a Gazette notice (that’s a fancy way of saying official announcement), the government has come up with the eCitizen.go.ke Digital Payments Platform. This nifty platform allows us citizens and everyone else to pay for government services hassle-free. No more running around with pockets full of cash or searching for the right office to make your payment. It’s all digital, my friends!
Now, you’re probably wondering how you can get in on this digital payment action. Fear not! The government’s got you covered. The eCitizen digital payment platform will have an official paybill short code number 222 and a USSD number 2222. To use this fancy platform, you’ll need your unique identification number handy. Citizens, whip out that national identity card, and foreigners, don’t forget your alien identity card. Companies, institutions, and organizations will need to use their official registration number as their special identifier. It’s like having your own secret code to unlock the wonders of digital payments!
But wait, there’s more! To make your life even easier, you can access the eCitizen digital payment platform using the Kenya Government Pay Bill number 222222, short code number 222, or USSD number 2222. It’s like having a secret backdoor to the world of government payments. Sneaky, right?
Our president, William Ruto, has been talking the talk about digitizing government services, and now he’s walking the walk. The eCitizen digital payment platform is a big step towards fulfilling his promise. We’re talking about making government services available online, folks! No more waiting in never-ending lines or rushing to beat the closing time. With a few taps on your phone, you’ll have access to a whopping 5,000 services through this digital wonderland. It’s like having a virtual government office in your pocket!
