Why Kenya and not Nigeria for Barclays mobile international payment first?

Downtime was interested to see that Barclays bank‘s mobile to mobile payment service, Pingit, is now enabling overseas payments.Maasai-jump.jpg

What we can’t understand is why Kenya was chosen as the first country to be able to receive payments from the UK. While buying a safari, a crate of White Label or even a Massai Robe using you mobile is a great idea we can’t help thinking that Barclays is missing a trick.

I know lots of very rich people in Nigeria who want me to help them move millions of pounds. So why not Nigeria?
