MTN to waive mobile money fees in Rwanda

MTN Rwanda has waived the costs of Mobile Money (MoMo) transactions to allow customers to use cashless modes of payment as part of measures to prevent the transmission of the coronavirus (COVID-19). All transactions will be free for 90 days to avoid cash handling in stores, supermarkets and pharmacies. 

“MTN stands in solidarity with the nation during this trying time while supporting the Government’s efforts to communicate and raise awareness on precautionary measures to prevent and contain the spread of the virus,” announced Mitwa Ng’ambi, MTN Rwanda Chief Executive Officer.

MTN has announced that it will also waive fees on sending money on all transactions from Banks to MoMo wallets and vice versa.

“We understand that customers will be constrained, therefore we are exploring ways to keep them connected,” Ng’ambi said.
