The lockdown in South Africa has been in effect for about 3 weeks now and with the announced extension expected to take us up to the end of April, it appears the uncertainty that’s gripped our lives recently is going to be with us for some time. It is therefore normal that there’ll be even more need to gain clarity on some things as we adjust to this new “normal”, things like what services are still available for us to use. That sister, cousin, mother, father or grandparent that’s been relying on you to send them money all along needs your help even more now. The last thing you need is to find yourself (or family members) stranded, be it in simply stocking up on groceries or getting them the critical medical attention they need when called upon.

Mukuru is still open for business

Customers based in South Africa sending money to Zambia can pay for their orders at the following places during the lockdown:

  • Pick ‘n Pay, Boxer, Shoprite, Checkers, USave, Spar, Game, Rhino Cash & Carry, Cambridge & Makro.  

Zambian customers can send and receive money at the 29 booths and 2 branches (Lusaka and Copperbelt area) which are still open to customers during the COVID19 epidemic.
