Gone are the days of buying scratchcards – the physical ones – in shops to top up your lines. There’s ease: Mpesa Paybill numbers to buy airtime online and instantly replaced them because, as of now, it is possible to buy Safaricom airtime and that of the other networks, Airtel’s and Telkom just straight from your phone, from any line.

During those days, when physical scratch cards were dominant, you couldn’t even recharge your SIM card at night or during rainy days like these because the shops were closed or the distance. Or even insecurity issues. But thanks to the technology of electronic airtime. It has brought more good than harm.
