Mukuru and Mkesh partnership Enables South Africa to Mozambique Remittances
Mukuru and Mcel have partnered to allow money to be sent from South Africa into any Mkesh mobile wallet in Mozambique. With the mobile phone being central to the process it is the most convenient way of sending money to Mozambique at 10% flat fee.
Mukuru users in South Africa place an order on their mobile phone by dialling *130*567# free. They can then pay directly from their MukuruCard or at any major retailer such as Pick n Pay, Shoprite, Checkers or Pep. Once payment is received, the money will go directly into their recipient’s Mkesh mobile wallet in Mozambique within 24 hours. Both sender and recipient receive SMS notifications along the way.
Recipients can then top up their Mcel airtime balances, send money locally, pay for goods and TV (StarTimes, Zap, DSTV, GOTV and TVCabo) or collect cash from Ponto24 ATMs or Mkesh Agents across Mozambique. In order to receive money from South Africa, Mcel subscribers first need to activate their Mkesh mobile wallet by dialling *500# from their Mcel SIM card or speak to their nearest Mcel shop or agent
