Rundu introduces electronic payments

11 January 2019 | Ekonomie
The Rundu town council has introduced electronic payment systems (speed points) to aid the town’s residents in making payments for goods and services.

The council’s acting CEO Sikongo Haihambo told Nampa in an exclusive interview on Wednesday that although the gesture is small, residents will no longer need to carry cash with them when paying their bills.

“This will also avoid lost sale opportunities because when a customer leaves to get the cash, they may not return. Nobody walks around with a lot of cash in their pockets,” Haihambo said.

He explained that in the past residents came to the revenue office to obtain a copy of their statements which indicated the amounts payable, before going to draw cash at ATMs.

“There are no ATMs within the proximity of about 300 metres from the town council for people to withdraw money, forcing them to go back to town,” he added.

After standing in very long queues to use the ATM, the same residents would again have to travel back to the council offices to queue up for a second time to pay their bills, after risking walking around with large sums of money. -NAMPA
