NCBA bank has closed 14 of its branches in a post-merger exercise to consolidate its operations following its birth in 2019.

The birth, arising out of a merger between the Commercial Bank of Africa (CBA) and NIC bank prompted the consolidation of brick and mortar operations as some of the new bank branches fell in close proximity.

“The proposed actions will enable NCBA to accelerate the realization of merger synergies, create operational efficiencies and enhance service delivery. NCBA has selected branches in locations where they are co-located or in close proximity to each other. The branches will be merged with the impacted branches ceasing operations with effect from the close of business on July 4,” read part of the NCBA statement issued Thursday.

Among the branches to be merged are located at the Village Market Mall, Settlers Store branch in Nanyuki and Mbolu Malo road in Machakos.
