KCCA Launches MTN Mobile Money Payments


For the first time since the launch of MTN Mobile Money in 2009, individuals and companies can now easily effect payment for licenses, fines, taxes and other fees to Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) using a secure and trusted platform.

This follows the signing of a partnership between KCCA and MTN Uganda that will enable members of the public and businesses pay for various City Authority taxes and levies. This service guarantees convenience to the customer and a more effective revenue collection mechanism for KCCA.

Commenting on the partnership, MTN’s General Manager Financial Services Phrase Lubega said,“Prior to the launch the KCCA solution, overall figures indicated that more than 85 percent of mobile bill payment collections in Uganda are made through the MTN Mobile Money platform.”

“Continuing to integrate mobile money into mainstream financial services will therefore further expand the digital financial ecosystem which in turn will facilitate further delivery of financial inclusion for all persons across Uganda,” he added.

Commenting on this partnership, KCCA’s Executive Director Jennifer Musisi said; “Today’s event presents a historic moment for both KCCA and MTN as it seeks to broaden the existing Revenue collection channels by bringing on board mobile money services to facilitate KCCA fees collection.”

This development means MTN Mobile Money subscribers can now simply utilize the Mobile Money menu, via *165#, to effect their payments to KCCA.

How the Service Works

  1. Dial *165#
  2. Select Option 9 (Fees and Taxes) on the second screen
  3. Select Option 2 (KCCA)
  4. You will be asked to enter the Payment Reference Number which you will have obtained from KCCA based on the nature of your payment.
  5. Enter Amount (that you wish to pay)
  6. Enter Mobile Money PIN

The customer will receive a confirmation message after the transaction has been completed.
