The Bamba Na Bob promotion will see Safaricom PrePay subscribers make savings of up to 67%, for 12 hours every day over the next two months. All individual PrePay customers are eligible. To enrol, a subscriber will simply dial *555# for free.

"In this increasingly competitive environment, Safaricom will continue to ensure that all strategic action is aligned with customer needs and their quest for real value.

To kick off the promotion, Safaricom in partnership with Rift Valley Railways (RVR) will offer all train commuters riding on commuter-trains within Nairobi, a train ride for only Ksh1, all day today, May 20, 2011. Mr Collymore flagged off the Bamba Na Bob train at 7:30 a.m. at CBD Railway Station.

"The partnership supports RVR's continuous efforts to increasingly put the customer at the centre of the company's strategy. We intend to keep using innovative products to reward customers, including introducing loyalty programs for our Reli Card holders," RVR CEO Brown Ondego noted.

Safaricom donates Sh5 million towards The Mater Heart Run 2011

The 2011 edition of the Mater Heart Run takes place on May 14th targeting to raise Ksh30 million in aid of children with heart conditions.

The money will cater for heart surgeries on 230 children across the country. In aid of this, Safaricom, which has supported the event over the last four years, has sponsored the event by donating Ksh5 million.

Speaking during the cheque presentation ceremony, Safaricom CEO Bob Collymore said the company's support to the annual event is informed by the need to assist Kenyan families pay for the escalating cost of a heart operation, which is estimated at about Ksh600,000 locally.

"The cost of a heart operation is way beyond the reach of most households in Kenya and therefore the need for concerted efforts to help where we can. Safaricom is glad to play its part in this noble quest, in line with our long-running partnership with the Kenyan people," said Mr. Collymore. The cheque presentation was done at Safaricom headquarters.

Last year, the event raised Ksh25.7 million, catering for operations on 210 children. Over 25,000 participants took part in the walk.

Statistics indicate the one out of every 100 children in the world is born with a heart condition that needs urgent re-constructive surgery. The figures are grimmer in the Third World where another one percent of the children is likely to develop a heart complication due to rheumatic conditions mostly associated with throat ailments.

According to the organizers of the Mater Heart Run, poor households are most vulnerable to heart conditions among children due to lack of access to the comprehensive medical treatment of throat ailments among children.
This year's event will take place on May 14th and will be flagged off at the traditional Nyayo National Stadium venue.
