Hakuna Matata bundles offer a buffet of communication solutions that come with unlimited SMS and calls for Africell to Africell customers, free social media or OTT tax worries and data bundles that are cost less than any other on the market.

Africell Uganda Chief Commercial Officer, Mr Neeraj Gala, said the Hakuna Matata bundles are timely because they are enabling cost-effective communication in the current times where people are financially strained.

β€œWe are keen on connecting communities and nothing speaks to this than the Hakuna Matata bundles we have launched. These are the most affordable combo bundles we have on the market now. For night calls we have a Hakuna Matata bundle priced at Shs250, which allows Africell users to call each other for free from the hours of 10 pm right through 6 pm,” Mr Gala said.
