Nothing unites Kenyans like the Great Eliud Kipchoge and stealing free Safaricom Data. We always speak tough against corruption but given a chance, most of us can rob the whole world of oxygen.
Having said that, if you didn’t get a piece of the free data early this morning then consider reviewing your friend list. From as early as 3 AM, Kenyans were waking up their mothers in the village to tell them about the Safaricom Heist.
In less than one hour of a system glitch at the giant telco, a few people had joined the league of millionaires. A friend of mine has Ksh 80 million worth of free airtime. They are asking if this can be exchanged with a Mercedes. Is it possible?
Meanwhile, Safaricom has bowed to pressure and introduced data bundles without expiry after being sued by a lawyer.
Some of these things would make Bob Collymore turn in his grave. But this can’t happen because the guy was cremated.
