The Banks as established will need to evaluate the business models add fit into the era of unprecedented ICT innovation use of technology. Look at a simple case of banking hours. I was caught up in a car breakdown at Mtito Andei near Kenya's great Tsavo East National Park at June 11, 2009 at 5.30 p.m. At the time no bank was open for business. The next option, ATMs, could not help because they are rare. Think of the Mobile Banking by Safaricom's M-Pesa agents and Zain's Zap agents, next to where you are at the point you got stuck and you are out of box! Voila!
