Nairobi county automates 44 services including garbage collection to be paid for through ejiji pay

The number of services that have so far been digitized now stands at 58.

The county has automated 44 previously manual services  such as garbage collection and birth/death certificate fees which Nairobians will now pay for them through the eJiji Pay digital platform.

“This is to inform you that we have activated an additional 44 revenue streams on the eJijiPAY electronic payment platform...Citizens can securely make payments on mobile phones, over the web, at partner banks and over network of agents across the city,” said Danson Muchemi, the CEO of WebTribe.

City Hall's eJiji is powered by JamboPay, which is owned by Kenyan tech firm WebTribe Ltd.

The number of services that have so far been digitized now stands at 58 following the automation of 14 other revenue streams in August.

All that remains now is for Governor Mike Sonko's government to put up a pay bill number through which residents will be able to make their payments.

Service charges will range from between Sh50 and Sh150 ($1.5).

“All that is remaining is for the county to put up a pay bill number through which residents can make payments and get receipts,” Muchemi said, adding that one will be contacted on when to pick their documents thereafter.

Below is a list of some of the automated services.
