Under the new payment mode, Kenyans who are making savings will be required to enter the 222222 pay bill number while the account number will be the name BOMA followed by an individual ID number.

“For direct-to-pay bill savings, the applicable account number will be BOMA followed by the member’s ID Number (e.g. Paybill No. 222222, Account No: BOMΑ12345678),” the Ministry noted.

The Affordable Housing Programme is the latest government service to comply with the government’s directive on the digital payment system.

President William Ruto in June announced that all government agencies would use one payment channel to ensure efficiency.

The president also noted that a single-pay bill would reduce corruption in government offices as it would limit physical interactions.
