“In order to enhance our service delivery and overall customer experience, we shall be upgrading our banking system from Friday 20 to Sunday 22 October 2017,” reads part of the statement.


The statement added: “Normal services will resume on Monday 23 October, 2017.

The bank has, however, told its thousands of subscribers that crucial services will be available to the public.

“You shall still have access to your bank account through ATMs countrywide, Equity agents, merchants and mobile banking channels,” the lender said.

Since the introduction of mobile banking in Kenya almost a decade ago, banking halls of most banks have remained empty, owing to the thousands of transaction done through the phone.
