Orange Kenya airtime available on Safaricom's M-Pesa

Tuesday 6 August 2013 | 12:43 CET | News
Orange Kenya says its users can now buy airtime via rival Safaricom's M-Pesa system. This will help users who might have difficulty getting to Orange airtime dealers or to those that stock airtime amounts beyond KES 500 or KES 3,000, CIO reported. Unlimited Internet on Orange costs KES 1,000 a month or KES 3,000 a month, yet few outlets beyond Orange distributors stock such amounts of airtime.
