A large population of Kenyans has been greatly inconvenienced as the most popular money transfer platform MPESA goes down.

The cause for the M-PESA unavailability has not yet been established.

Safaricom is yet to issue an official statement on the pertinent issue as many Kenyans who have embraced cashless payments are left in the dark. 

Most Kenyans on the Safaricom network have been unable to perform any transactions as they embraced MPESA as a mode of payment to support the government’s bid to control the spread of Covid-19.

Affected Kenyans have taken to social media to express their frustrations about the issue and the numerous hitches Safaricom service have faced recently.
