Nairobi University students set to pay for meals via government’s e-citizen

Students and staff at the University of Nairobi eating at the school’s kitchen will henceforth be paying for meals through the Kenyan government’s e-citizen platform.

This follows a directive by the current regime to the university, ordering that all payments made to the institution be done through the government’s online portal.

A memo was circulated to both students and staff outlining the payment procedure; pay bill number 222222. To complete the transaction, users must enter an Outlet/Live identifier in capital letters, followed by a hyphen and their name (e.g., NUK1-name) as the account number.

“The Kenyan Government has mandated that all payments to the University of Nairobi be made via the e-citizen platform. Complying with this directive, the University has established the required systems to enable clients to make payments through e-citizen,” read the notice from the VC, issued through Corporate Affairs.

Further payment details were issued for different university kitchens. This directive applies to the University of Nairobi Main Campus and other satellite institutions.

This is the latest landmark in the government’s shift to digitizing all rendered service payments on their e-citizen platform. Anyone seeking to get any service from the government will have to part with some money to be paid on the platform.

Treasury CS Njuguna Ndung’u previously stated that those seeking to access government services will be required to pay a nominal fee per transaction.

The charges are:

  • Below Sh.199 will be charged at Sh.5
  • Between Sh.200 – Sh.299 at Sh.10
  • Between Sh.300 – Sh.499 at Sh.15
  • Between Sh.500 – Sh.699 at Sh.20
  • Between Sh.700 – Sh.999 at Sh.25
  • Over Sh.1000 – Sh.50
