How to purchase Safaricom data
You can buy the data using USSD *544# and select a plan of your choice, or on my Safaricom app go to data and SMS plans.
All Safaricom platinum plans also now have the free WhatsApp which is valid till the end of the validity period of the bundle purchased, and is active even if data runs out.
