TNM Central Regional Finance Manager Sumaice Musamaleke says TNM Mpamba wallet which was launched early May this year has helped to ease hassles to the poor.
The TNM Mobile money in connection with Central Region Water Board (CRWB) on Tuesday launched a link between the two at a function held in Lilongwe.
Musamaleke said the Mpamba mobile wallet will provide TNM customers to pay water bills electronically without spending much on transport.
“Our aim is to ease the problem of spending more money when going to pay water bills and more time standing on the queue,” he said.
On his part, TNM Business Development Manager Louis Chipofya said the launch of Mpamba Central Region Water Board will assist customers in sending money and paying bills by phone.
”A customer will be asked to register by completing a form to enable him or her to transact mpamba accounts,” said Chipofya.
He said instead of driving to pay bills, a customer will just factor a pin code on the mobile saying the charge fee is as small as K50.
He pointed out that the facility is flexible and targeting the poor in all regions.
In his remarks, CRWB Public Relations and Administration Officer Zephelino Mitumba echoed the same, saying the mobile money will help to ease the way of paying water bills.
“Sometimes cash offices are not open, … you are disconnected, then the TNM mobile money will honour your payment any time,” he said.
He said several companies have so far registered with TNM on Mobile money like Debonairs, PTC, Kulima Gold, Insurance companies and Multchoice, GOtv, among others.
Since the launch of this facility by TNM in May this year, over 18,000 people have been registered.–Malawi News AgencyFollow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
