Thursday, May 7, 2015

KIGALI, RWANDA – MTN Rwanda has partnered with Rwanda Revenue Authority (RRA) to offer taxpayers an easier way to pay their taxes using the MTN Mobile Money platform.

Speaking at the launch of the Mobile Money tax innovation at the MTN offices in Nyarutarama last week, Ebenezer Asante, the MTN Rwanda CEO, said that the move is aimed at further easing up the process and cost of doing business by the business segment of MTN subscribers in Rwanda.

“Once again, this innovation is arguably the first in Africa and a further boost for Rwanda as a leader in ICT for development. To our customers, the Mobile Money channel for paying taxes will provide unbeaten convenience and enhanced productivity in saving time, energy and money when paying their taxes. We closely take note of the digital world our customers’ lives revolve in and we don’t want factors like time or distance to be a disincentive for any of our customers to access a service.”
