Interswitch, the Africa-focused integrated electronic payments and commerce company, has partnered with Telkom Kenya to develop and deploy App solutions to enable their push towards integrated digital services in the revamped Telkom Kenya strategy.

Kenya is acknowledged as a leader in mobile payments solutions and high uptake of Digital Financial Services.

Paul Mwaura Ndichu, the CEO of Interswitch East Africa (K) says, “The world is moving more towards mobile and Digital solutions and Kenya is no exception. It is estimated that by 2025, more people worldwide will have their first banking experience on the phone and in Kenya, we are working closely with our partners in the Technology and Financial Services sectors to enable development and roll-out of solutions to meet this growing demand’.
