MDC Members Can Initiate Payments/Donations Via WhatsApp Bot

Share

The Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) recently introduced a WhatsApp chatbot for members to pay party subscriptions and individuals looking to donate to the party can do so using the digital channels.

By simply texting Register to +263777101739, you initiate the membership payment and donation process which will ask users of the bot to provide the following information;

  • Full name
  • date of birth
  • ID number
  • Membership category
  • province
  • type of payment you would like to make

Whilst the bot is pretty helpful and it’s great to see the party taking advantage of technology like this to help members I was a bit uneasy about the amount of information you have to share.

Quick NetOne, Telecel, Africom, And Econet Airtime Recharge
