Airtel Uganda and Kampala Capital City Authority have officially unveiled the e-City project, an electronic mode for collection of KCCA dues, that allows customers to pay their taxi monthly license, trading license & property rates, land dues and yellow fever vaccinations by using the Airtel Money platform.
Speaking at the launch event, the Airtel Uganda Managing Director Tom Gutjahr said that Airtel is proud to be associated with the development of Kampala and partnering with KCCA to ease the services provided to its residents. “As the smartphone network, we are extremely gratified that through Airtel Money, all Kampala residents can now pay for their services with ease, securely and instantly”, he said.
Since the launch of this product last year, Airtel money has been the major mode of payment that has been embraced by the public, according to the company, who have credited it for being simple, secure, time saving and instant. Customers do not have to wait in queues to make payments before they can get service from KCCA.

With innovations such as; sending and receiving money across networks, Airtel Money ATM withdrawals, Bank integration, bill payments with Airtel money, Airtime topping up using Airtel Money and now KCCA fee payment using Airtel money, Airtel has always had the interests of their customers at heart and has tried to cater to all of them despite their different locations and economic activities.
