Telecommunications giant Safaricom has announced that the total number of unredeemed bonga points has risen up to Ksh 3 billion.
Unredeemed Bonga points are accounted for as liabilities in their accounts so as per now, the company owes its subscribers up to Ksh 3 billion shillings. In a bid to reduce this liability, Safaricom has been encouraging subscribers to redeem their points to get smartphones and other electronic gadgets at a cheaper price.
“We encourage use of the points so that the programme can achieve its objective and also clear our books of accrued liability,” Safaricom said in a statement to Business Daily.
The number has grown from 1.4 billion in 2009 to 3.2 billion in the past financial year.
