In a move that will make revenue collection awesome, DTB has unveilled a service with the Kisii County Government that will see motorists, buses and bodaboda’s in the county pay their parking and monthly license fees electronically.
The new service will enable the residents make their payments through M-Pesa and Airtel Money, Visa or MasterCard branded card in the town’s CBD. The DTB branded county revenue collection points will be manned by inspectors in counties to verify payments against vehicle or bodaboda registration numbers.
Speaking about the development, Nasim Devji, CEO of DTB, said, “We are excited to be the first bank to go live with an electronic solution for all parking fees collection in the counties. This partnership with the Kisii County Government is a demonstration of our commitment to enhancing business and making life convenient for our customers. In this digital era, customers are already making most of their transactions through their mobile phones and parking fees should be no exception.”
The residents will also be able to pay for their bus park fee as they leave the bus terminal. Bodaboda monthly payments can be made at any of the various county revenue collection points located in strategic areas around Kisii town.
Devji said the DTB will extend the service to all other areas of revenue collection including advertising, rates and licenses within the County and to more counties in Kenya.
James Ongwae, Governor, Kisii County said he was delighted to have DTB as its partner in parking fee collection as it will not only streamline their revenue collection and seal any revenue leakages but will also go a long way in increasing their accountability and easing payment methods for Kisii residents.
“Our great vision for Kisii County will only be achieved if we make the right progressive partnerships, embrace technology and efficiently manage our revenue collection. Today the people of Kisii are the winners as they will not only experience easier and faster parking payment methods but they can now rest assured that the money will all reach the county government for investment back into the community.” Commented Ongwae.
