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.
