Nairobi residents will now have to use a new payment platform to pay for various services offered by the County.

This comes after Nairobi Metropolitan Services (NMS) announced a new unified payment short code. The new unstructured supplementary service data (USSD) short code is *647# and will enable residents  to  dial and access a one stop platform for all service delivery needs ranging from property management, land rates payments, market fees payments and parking fees payments.

This marks the last bit of migration of revenue collection from City Hall to NMS through Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA). Early July, KRA announced that it is rolling out, in phases, a new revenue collection system for all key revenue streams in Nairobi. KRA said the new system will incorporate features such as integrated customer touch points including USSD, mobile app and web portal.
