Tanzania: M-Pesa Partners With Veta Kipawa

VODACOM'S M-Pesa service continues to spread its wings across various sectors in the country, with the latest development being education.

"From today, students, parents and guardians in Kipawa Vocational Education and Training Authority (VETA) in Dar es Salaam will be able to pay school fees through the service, after Vodacom entered into an M-Pesa agreement with the college, said Vodacom Head of M-Commerce, Mr Jackson Kiswaga.

He said that VETA Kipawa is among several schools and universities that will be able to use M-Pesa to pay school fees in the country, adding that the institution is the first to start using the service.

"We are proud of this partnership. We believe that this is yet another technological development and will go a long way in changing our lives. We also aim to reach all VETA institutions across the country," he said.
