Kenya: Yu Supports proposal seeking interoperability of mobile payment services


Essar Telecoms yuMobile has welcomed a proposals for a common system facilitating mobile money transfers across networks. The proposal is part of the recommendation by a task force set up by the PMs office to look into mobile telephony improvement in Kenya.

A common transfer system will mean that a subscriber of any mobile network will be able to send and receive money via their mobiles to and from any other network.

"It is our desire to give our subscribers the very best in services and one way of doing that is to ensure that we eliminate any blockages that hinder consumers from making choices that suit their needs" says Madhur Taneja, yuMobile Country Manager. A shared money transfer system will offer convenience and flexibility to users.
