Struggles every Kenyan can relate to when their data bundles deplete


You’re in a boring environment with no Wi-Fi. All you have is your phone. You know no one. So you decide to make good use of your phone and it’s bundle because you’re going to be there for a while. It’s not a problem coz at least there are lights so charging your phone is definitely a plus.

It’s been a couple of minutes into your favourite movie/series and then the text hits you out of nowhere. Your data bundles have run out. It feels like the end of the world for you. You don’t have any more money, you had already okoad jahazi, you spent all your bonga points, if anyone sends you money it will immediately be eaten coz uliamua kufuliza, WHAT IS LIFE?



I know all this sounds so familiar and that’s because we’ve all been through such a situation.

It’s at these times where we discover everything about our phones because we have nothing better to do. In fact, it’s almost a bother to you as you tend to feel as if your phone is actually useless. You may have an iPhone and but the kind of network you’re on will frustrate you if they keep showing your data. If you have a horrible network or your data keeps running out you will definitely relate to these struggles.
