Safaricom, Vodacom Complete M-PESA Acquisition

Safaricom and Vodacom

Safaricom and Vodacom announce that they have completed the acquisition of the M-PESA brand, product development and support services from Vodafone through a newly-created joint venture.
The transaction, which was first announced in 2019, will accelerate M-PESA’s growth in Africa by giving both Vodacom and Safaricom full control of the M-PESA brand, product development and support services as well as the opportunity to expand M-PESA into new African markets.
Shameel Joosub, Vodacom Group CEO, says “This is a significant milestone for Vodacom as it will accelerate our financial services aspirations in Africa. Our joint venture will allow Vodacom and Safaricom to drive the next generation of the M-PESA platform – an intelligent, cloud-based platform for the smartphone age. It will also help us to promote greater financial inclusion and help bridge the digital divide within the communities in which we operate.”
Michael Joseph, outgoing Safaricom CEO says: “For Safaricom, we’re excited that the management, support and development of the M-PESA platform has now been relocated to Kenya, where the journey to transform the world of mobile payments began 13 years ago. This new partnership with Vodacom will allow us to consolidate our platform development, synchronise more closely our product roadmaps, and improve our operational capabilities into a single, fully converged Centre of Excellence.”
Nick Read, Vodafone Group’s CEO, said: “M-PESA is hugely successful and enables millions of unbanked people in Africa to transfer money, pay bills and trade. It benefits communities and helps create a multitude of small and micro-business ventures. However, with the rapid increase in smartphone penetration, the evolution into financial services and the potential for geographical expansion, we believe the next step in M-PESA’s African growth will be more effectively overseen by Vodacom and Safaricom.”
M-PESA is the largest payments platform on the African continent, it has 40 million users and processes over a billion transactions every month. M-PESA is operational in Kenya, Tanzania, Lesotho, Democratic Republic of Congo, Ghana, Mozambique and Egypt. Currently around 25% of all M-PESA customers have access to a smartphone – a figure that is growing by 10% every year.
The disposal of the M-PESA brand, support and product development services to Vodacom and Safaricom is broadly financially neutral for Vodafone Group.

The number of Coronavirus cases in kenya is increasing by day which is not pleasing at all. Although few but there are some recoveries reported too which is encouraging.

NHIF Kenya

NHIF has extended the deadline for members to choose their health facilities from 31st March 2020 to 30th April 2020.

The insurer through a notice to the public has urged each member to update the information about their facility of choice afresh even if you'll choose the same facility again. 

The exercise which began in January 2020 will now end in April 2020, an extension as a result of  the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic and the government curfew. 

Beneficiaries will continue to be served from their previously chosen health facilities till the ongoing exercise is completed. 

Branch visits are highly discouraged, but all members are encouraged to use the digital platforms include USSD code *155# ,NHIF  mobile App and NHIF Website. 

Claim process is still on, and all approved health facilities should continue doing so without hesitation.
