Press Release: Econet and Land Administration Authority (LAA) partner to offer convenience in payments through EcoCash

Econet and LAA entered into a partnership that allows customers to pay for LAA’s Ground rent from the comfort of their homes through EcoCash, also known as, Spache-fono.

Through this partnership, active EcoCash subscribers can pay their Ground rent through Econet’s *100# platform.

Econet’s General Manager; Econet Services, Mr Motebang Moeketsi, stated that as a telecommunications company, their mandate is to come up with solutions that best serve their customers. “If we cannot provide the service ourselves, we build partnerships with those who can” said Moeketsi

“LAA has a well-established track record across the country, providing land owners with lease documents to ensure the eradication of multi ownership to single land and fraudulent activities” added Moeketsi

“Giving customers’ access to the system that enables them to pay Ground rent from the tips of their fingers will minimize the accrual of annual penalty charges” said Moeketsi

On the other hand, LAA’s Director Corporate Services; Mr. Tankiso Sephoso, reiterated that, “in partnering with Econet, LAA remains committed to improving the lives of individuals and companies by registering their rights to land” said Sephoso

Sephoso added that LAA’s partnership with like-minded giants such as Econet, who share their philosophy of being customer centric, will help them achieve their mission.

“We expect this collaboration to improve service delivery to LAA clients and enhance our standing as the only land administrators in the country” he said

“By paying through EcoCash, our customers’ time and transportation costs will significantly be saved” added Sephoso
