Zambia Information and Communication Technology Authority (ZICTA) has advised citizens to embrace digital financial services in order to better their lives
Authority Corporate Communications Officer Hanford Chaaba told Money FM News in an interview that digital financial services are at the centre of digital transformation, therefore people must make use of the technology which has been changing over time.
“Technology is changing, and when technology is changing we need to keep on also abrasing ourselves with what is happening in the technological world.”
“When you look at Digital financial services now, they are actually at the centre of digital transformation, we want to encourage people to ensure that they make use of this technology and take advantage of such technology to ensure that they better their lives,” Mr. Chaaba said.
Mr. Chaaba added that government is driving towards achieving the digital financial inclusion agenda, where even people in rural areas should have access to digital financial services either through mobile money or traditional banks.
“What government is actually driving towards is achieving what we call the digital financial inclusion agenda, where even our mother or grandmother in the village should at least have some kind of financial inclusion either through mobile money or the traditional bank, at least where they can be keeping money,” he added.
