“I decided to develop the app after I realized that I was using Mpesa for a lot of my business and daily transactions, and I needed good records that were readily available.” – Zebumob app developer

You can now track all your Mpesa transactions, thanks to an innovative mobile application developed by Muthuu Kagio.
The recently launched app, Zebumob for Android phones easily identifies Mpesa messages (messages on money received, sent, loaded, withdrawn, bills paid, and airtime purchased) on user’s phone and categorizes them to find out how much one spends per month, week or day.  
Mr. Kagio has already signed a trademark agreement with Mpesa, and the app is also accessible to Vodacom users in Tanzania and South Africa.  
The app is free; however, small businesses users who want to obtain a detailed report and analysis of their transactions will have to pay a fee of Sh100 per month for the service.  

According to its official website, the app has the following features:
J        Automatic saving of all Mpesa transactions in the app as well as the official website.
J        Categorizing of all Mpesa transactions
J        Option to find out how much one sends, receives, withdraws, loads per day, week, month or year.
J        Printing out ones Mpesa statement
J        And a robust password protection

To download the app go to Google Play on your android phone > Search for Zebumob > Install the free app > Login to to print out your statement (into an excel spreadsheet).    

Mpesa was launched 5 years ago and has over 15 million users in Kenya; with more than half of the entire world’s mobile-money transactions going through the Safaricom’s product, Safaricom is arguably the world’s market leader in mobile money transfer.

Happy 14th Birthday, Google!
