Prepaid folks can donate airtime to top up friends and family

Thanks to Erik of for passing on this service from SafariCom. Sambaza (meaning to share in swahili) allows SafariCom prepaid customers to share airtime with their family and friends; any amount between Kshs. 50 and Kshs. 10,000.

How ?

1. Create a new SMS message and enter the airtime value you want to share, followed by #, followed by the mobile number you want to top-up.

2. Send to 140

3. Wait for confirmation by SMS

4. The person receiving the airtime gets a receipt message on successful top-up.

We just tested it and it works instantly.
