Kenyatta National Hospital is the latest facility to comply with the government's directive on the digital payment system (e-citizen).
As of Wednesday this week, December 6, 2023, all payments were channeled to the pay bill number 222222 as announced by the Hospital's CEO Evanson Kamuri.
"Kenyatta National Hospital is now compliant with the Government’s directive on the digital payment system (e-citizen), " reads the notice dated December 5, 2023.
All other paybill numbers have subsequently been discontinued with effect.
In addition to that, payments from Mwai Kibaki Hospital in Nyeri and Mama Margaret Uhuru in Nairobi will also be channeled to paybill number 222222.
Mwai Kibaki Teaching and Referral Hospital formerly known as the new Othaya Level 6 Hospital is a Level 6 facility.
On the other hand, Mama Margaret Uhuru Hospital was built by the defunct Nairobi Metropolitan Services and commissioned by former President Uhuru Kenyatta on March 18, 2022.
The facility which its operation is run by the National Government has not been handed to the county government of Nairobi.
Chief of Staff and Head of Public Service Felix Koskei last month lauded the government's move to go digital.
Revealing milestones achieved, Koskei announced that since government services became available on e-citizen, the state has been generating Sh281 million daily in revenue.
"So far, 250 Ministries, Departments, and Agencies (MDAs) are fully onboard the e-Citizen, offering over 16,000 government services, up from 397 in June 2022, generating Sh281 million in daily revenue," he said in a statement.
e-Citizen is a platform that allows Kenyans to access government services such as the renewal of driving licenses, application of passports and business registration services.
The Chief of Staff noted that with full compliance, daily revenue will surpass the Sh1 billion daily target.
In addition, Koseki called on the government institutions still operating to pay bills and till numbers other than 222222 to close them down as per the Presidential Directive.
Last December, the government announced that all payments for government services shall be made through the e-citizen portal.
Treasury Cabinet Secretary Njuguna Ndung’u gazetted the portal to be the official government digital payment platform.
