Safaricom has announced that they have waived fees for MPESA transactions below Kshs 1000 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Starting tomorrow, all person to person transactions below Kshs 1000 will be free for the next 90 days.
This was possible thanks to a meeting between Safaricom, the Central Bank of Kenya and other industry players on the evolving situation that is the coronavirus pandemic.
Safaricom is also working with the government by providing a call centre and integrating a toll-free line 719 which has been set up by the National Emergency Response Committee to support Kenyans in understanding how to prevent and manage suspected coronavirus cases. all calls to 719 will be free.
