Nairobi Expressway to start accepting M-Pesa payments

Motorists who enjoy using the Nairobi Expressway can now rejoice that they will soon be able to pay for access to the coveted Nairobi Expressway, a first of its kind in the region, using M-Pesa.

M-Pesa was suspended following Nairobi Expressway’s opening in May 2022 to reduce traffic congestion at tolling points. One had to pay with cash or an electronic card to gain access to the road. Kenyans were limited in their payment options because most of the populace use M-Pesa to accomplish most daily transactions.

According to a local daily, Mr. Zhao, The Moja Expressway CEO, has expressed the need for motorists using the route to quit using cash by 2023, implying that an M-Pesa option will be considered.

The Moja Way CEO discussed the new development during the Moja Annual General Meeting on December 22, 2022.
