You can now Okoa jahazi more than once as long as within the your limit

Okoa jahazi
Okoa Jahazi is a Safaricom prepay service that allows it's subscribers borrow airtime to be paid during the next top up within a 96 hour period.
Launched in April 2009, the service advances airtime of Ksh.10, Ksh.20, Ksh.50, Ksh.100, Ksh.250, Ksh.500 or Ksh.1,000.
To be eligible for Okoa you should have an active Safaricom.line which should have spend at least Ksh.10 in the previous week.
The higher the airtime spent the higher the Okoa limit.
To borrow okoa jahazi dial *131# on your Safaricom prepay and select the amount you want to borrow from the list.
The advance airtime can be used to make calls, both onnet and offnet, send SMS, buy data and SMS bundles, make international calls or buy Tunukiwa offers. However, you cannot Sambaza the borrowed airtime or use it to pay an existing jahazi in order to borrow another.
For this,Safaricom charges an advance fee of 10% which is directly deducted from the borrowed amount.
Initially, a subscriber was allowed to borrow only once until the advance is offset so as to borrow the next one, but now Safaricom has given it's prepay subscribers an opportunity to Okoa jahazi more than once as long as they are within their advance limit.

For example, if your Okoa limit is Ksh.500, then you can borrow Ksh.250, and after sometime also borrow up to another Ksh.250 even before offsetting the first advance as long as you're within a 96 hour period.
To track the usage of your advance airtime, dial *144*4# or send a blank SMS to 144.
This new move by Safaricom got many by surprise and thought that there was an Okoa clith. 
Social media was a buzz with activity, customers calling upon their fellow customers to quickly take advantage of the situation.
By the time Safaricom confirmed that this was in fact a new move that could allow their subscribers borrow airtime more than once, many had already borrowed uoto thousands of airtime.
In June 2019, a technical glitch allowed Safaricom customers access to huge amounts of data due to a fault with Platinum purchase using Bonga Points.
This explains why many thought this was another 'lucky escape' but now that you know borrow with discipline so that you don't end up with a huge Okoa jahazi debt
