Kenyans are never left behind when it comes to making fun of literally everything. Even in matters that are required to be taken with some seriousness, Kenyans will end up making jokes out of it.
On Friday morning Kenyans woke up to a scramble for Safaricom’s ‘free’ platinum plan data after the telco suffered a system malfunction at its headquarters.
Only the early birds succeeded in riding on the ‘free’ data packages that was a result of a system glitch. It however did not take long before the telco noticed and took control of the situation.
One was able to purchase data bundles using Bonga points even if they had zero points. A number of users have confirmed that they repurchased the data packages severally. The data packages came with talk time packages and free whatsapp bundle packages as well.
Following Safaricom’s glitch Kenyans especially Twitter users have made a lot jokes. Check out some:
“#Safaricom Uki ni text .I will video call. Siwezi chat na mtu sioni 💃💃💃. When we come together great things happen.
Which is the best platform to dowload movies? Hizi bundles ni mob,Pamoja twaweza😂 #Safaricom
I am literally using google maps to locate my sufurias right now
Leo nagoogle hadi nijue great great great grandfather yangu😂😂 #Safaricom
Maze kuna club naweza lipa drinks na either minutes ama Mbs?😂😂😂 Is too much!!”
