How Safaricom Subscribers can Use “Okoa Stima” to avoid Power Disconnection by KPLC

“Okoa Stima”, basically is a service that allows Safaricom and KPLC customers to avoid power disconnections without necessarily having to pay immediately.  The service works by enabling customers to borrow any amount within their credit limits (limits are determined by customer’s relationship with KPLC) and use the same amount to settle power bills i.e. by purchasing power tokens for KPLC’s pre-paid meters and pay back within 7 days. This is actually a loan facility from Safaricom – serviced at 10 percent fee via Mpesa money transfer service. Users can register up to 3 meters which can then be eligible to for top-ups using “Oka Stima”, (Note: Un-registered meters cannot use this facility).

  6. I bought units worth 2000 with mpesa and have not recieved tokens todate. The transaction was yesterday on acc 01450660020. Send the tokens

  7. The emergency option is not found when i dial *885#. Have tried getting the okoa stima but in vain what other numbers do you have?

    Secondly, the wording on the web are too many to make a point straight & simple, shorten the notes to mean sense & solve an emergency.

    Third, some of the emergency staff waiting to receive customers requests are incompetent & arrogant. Perhaps its time you vetted the night duty staff. Their attitude doesn’t qualify professionalism as it’s supposed to. 0721569154
