Most of the commenters have never really used wechat and therefore do not understand how far ahead it is comparing to whatsapp , Facebook or PayPal.
Kenyans are very sentimental about Mpesa, but if tencent spends even 1% of what it’s spends to prop wechat in China, Safaricom will seriously bleed.
I corrected that. Wechat is bank agnostic, Stanbic will only serve as a point of entry and later it can allow more banks to link to the wallet . It did this in China when it launched with only a few banks and later expanded to cover more banks.
