Why you will not access M-Pesa on Sunday

Safaricom has announced that M-PESA services will not be available for four hours on Sunday.

In a statement released on Friday August 25, Safaricom stated that the M-PESA system would be going through a planned upgrade.

“We expect all services to be restored and M-PESA to be fully functional following the process,” read the statement.

This is not the first time that M-PESA has disrupted operations as just last month they disrupted operations for similar reasons.

Safaricom had previously initiated a three-week system upgrade on June 30 which saw M-Pesa services disrupted ocassionally.

According to the telecommunication company, the upgrade is geared towards adding new features and automating some functions to reduce the need for customers to make a request at its call centres.

Mr Collymore mentioned: "This upgrade paves the way for the next phase of M-Pesa and will enable the service delivers, even more, value for our customers and partners".
