If your car is clamped by Nairobi ‘kanjo’ you’ll now be able to pay the penalties via Mpesa @KenyanTraffic
City Hall has begun the roll-out of an electronic clamping charges payment system aimed at making the payment of the fee digital.
This comes after the county government in July started trialing a new system to help motorists pay clamping charges electronically ahead of equipping all the parking attendants with smart phones which they will use to effect the operation.
Nairobi County director of Parking Services Tom Tinega said they have already given out over 500 smart phones to parking attendants to help in the process.
“We have given out the gadgets and everything is now working according to plan. We are looking forward to making sure that every part of the city is fully digitized to make the payment system more compliant,” said Mr Tinega.
The smart phones have been configured to receive notifications that a clamped car has been paid for prompting the attendant to go and unclamp.
Mr Tinega said that a motorists whose car gets clamped for failing to pay daily parking fees will simply need to dial *235# and follow the options available in the new county revenue collection short code to make the payment.
