If you are searching to know how to buy KPLC with Bonga points, this is the article to read. It happens from time to time that you are confronted with an unexpected power outage.
But, you shouldn’t be worried because Safaricom and KPLC have partnered up to enable you Safaricom subscribers to buy tokens using Bonga points.
Bonga is a loyalty program introduced by Safaricom in 2007 that allows consumers to earn points for using its network’s services.
Safaricom witnessed over 1 billion Bonga Points redeemed for food and home supplies through a recent project called ‘Bonga for Good.’
Kenya Power and Safaricom announced a partnership on July 24, 2020, allowing users to pay for electricity using Bonga Points.
Kenya Power’s domestic customers can now use their Bonga Points to buy tokens or pay their bills at the cost of 20 cents per Bonga Point, thanks to the partnership.
Customers will be able to pay for power using an alternate wallet, providing relief to households suffering from lower incomes.
At the same time, it gives customers yet another cash-free option for paying for power, bolstering the Company’s efforts to promote Coronavirus prevention measures.
Kenya Power users can now pay for power using mobile money platforms and bank transfers as an alternative to cash payments.
