Kenyans React After MPESA Technical Hitch Gets Them Unaware

Kenyans on social media have reacted to the technical hitch experienced on Safaricom's MPESA services on Wednesday night.

The technical hitch caught many Kenyans unaware and some couldn't get their services done or paying for goods.

Since the pandemic hit the country, the government has been urging Kenyans to go cashless so as to minimize the spread of the virus due to touching of cash.

But when unprepared with cash for emergencies, inconveniences may rock you if monetary platforms stop working.

Kenyans on twitter on Wednesday shared their disbelief after realizing Mpesa was not working.

"Yet another reminder to always walk around with cash because Mpesa will embarrass you," KTN news anchor Akisa Wandera shared.

"Niko apa Total na full tank na sina cash y kulipa.I look lost," Sam tweeted.

Another user opined that one day the service might crash the economy," one day Mpesa will crash and bring the whole economy to a standstill and the guys at CBK will not be liable coz they don't regulate it as a financial institution.

Safaricom, however, has cleared the air saying they are working to resolve the issue.

"Hello, our apologies on the Mpesa notification delays however, our team is working to resolve. Please bear with us," Safaricom tweeted.

Have you ever been stranded because of the same?
