All payments for government services will be made through eCitizen, said Njuguna Ndung'u, Secretary to the Minister of Finance.
After introducing the government's digital payment program, payments for services will be made through the official payment number 222222.
"Government has launched a digital payment platform, eCitizen.go.ke, where citizens and others can pay for government services," Prof Ndung'u said in a newspaper release.
The payment platform is integrated with all electronic payment platforms in Kenya, including mobile money, he said.
The official short code of the address book is 222 and the USSD number is 2222. The National ID will be the unique identifier for citizens, while foreigners will use the foreign ID. The unique identifier for companies, institutions and organizations will be the official registration number.
"All payments for government services will gradually be made through the platform," said Prof Ndungu.
This comes weeks after President William Ruto promised to digitize all government services and make them available online. Providing public services online will improve and improve services, as promised to 5,000.
"To ensure Kenyans get better government services, we will provide 5,000 government services online in six months. This will help solve the problem of long queues for Kenyans to be served," he said.
The head of state said that there are currently only 300 online services.
"We can get every service online without going to the office," he said.
