Kenya Power and Safaricom have partnered to allow customers to pay for electricity using Bonga points.

Households struggling from the economic effects brought about the Coronavirus pandemic can now use Safaricom Bonga Points to settle their electricity bills.

“We have entered into a partnership with Safaricom through which our customers will be able to pay for power through Bonga Points. In addition, we plan to amplify campaigns to educate our customers on efficient power use in order to manage their bills during these tough economic times,” Kenya Power managing director Bernard Ngugi said.

The deal will help cushion many Kenyans after more than 600,000 people, which is about 10 percent of all Kenya Power customers, defaulted in paying their bills in the last three months.
