Safaricom celebrates its 20 years with free calls and data in Kenya

Safaricom subscribers will enjoy one free call of up to 20 minutes within the next 30 days as the telco giant marks 20 years since it was launched.

The CEO of Safaricom, Peter Ndegwa stated it will send its subscribers notification to inform them of their free calls.

Ndegwa said, “Each customer will receive a notification a day before to alert them of their free call. Customers who have been on the Safaricom network for 20 years, as well as customers turning 20 this year, will also receive a free 20GB data bundle valid for 7 days.”

For the next 30 days, a promotion dubbed 20@20 will allow subscribers to buy 20 minutes of call time and 20MBs at Sh20.

For the next 90 days, customers buying personalized Tunukiwa voice offers will obtain free 20 minutes to call across all networks.

Both offers are available on USSD *444# under the ‘Buy Minutes’ option.

Through a brand campaign dubbed ‘Twende Tukiuke’, a callout to go beyond what is thought possible, the service provider will also showcase the power of mobile technology in transforming lives.

Ndegwa concluded, “We are cognizant that technology and a data-driven economy can further support Kenya’s economic growth and these will be our launchpad for the next 20 years. We plan to go beyond to new frontiers, be more present, more world-class, and enable new platforms to launch our SMEs into greater possibilities.”
