So over the weekend I bought 375MB Blaze data. I normally use Orange data nowadays since Airtel Kenya did this to me. But the Orange network wasn’t available where I was so I decided to Blaze up.
I laughed later on at how fast my data ended. And the messages arrived in a funny order. Here’s a screenshot.
Mine was just weird. Almost finished. Then 20MB. Then 75MB. Then actually finished. pic.twitter.com/SovxNNGR1V

Anyway, @SamGichuru started the conversation some one hour ago on Twitter. And there’s now the revelation that the problem of data disappearing is wide spread. There are many people experiencing the same issue:
There are lots of people complaining:
I thought this was only happening to me ?? https://t.co/CIeDewNTui

This line 0796864639 is a kabambe, i.e no internet. It had 350mb data but now it has ZERO data. @SafaricomLtd EXPLAIN 2 ME HOW THAT HAPPENED

@SafaricomLtd needs to talk about this. Maybe Bundles Mwitu was the better option:
Now you realize bundles Mwitu is a far game.
