As technology continues to advance, so do the ways individuals communicate. Preference for every day communication for many has shifted to social media apps as smartphones become more prevalent. However, the old-fashioned call refuses to go out of style.

Every so often you will need to pick up the phone and make a call. Ugandan telecoms know this, and have several voice bundle options for their customers, giving them more minutes affordably should they need to make a lengthy call.

That said, have you ever wondered how your service provider is charging you for voice bundles relative to the competition?

We have managed to come up with a comparative analysis of the current voice bundles on the market from the key players that is Africell, Airtel and MTN.

In this article, we will be looking at both normal voice and combo bundles.

NORMAL VOICE BUNDLES (ON-NET)

Africell and Airtel have daily, weekly and monthly packages whereas MTN has daily and monthly packages only. While all 3 mostly charge the same for the packages they have in common, the key difference is in how many minutes they offer. Generally, Africell tends to offer the most value for customers, giving the best customer rate over the other players.

For instance where Africell charges Ugx 1000/- daily for 75 minutes of On-Net calls, Airtel offers 30 minutes and MTN offers 20 minutes for the same price. For the monthly bundles which cost Ugx 10, 000/- across the 3 networks, Africell gives 850 minutes whereas both Airtel and MTN give 300 minutes which translates into 55 percent more value for Africell customers.

COMBOS

Africell reigns supreme here. It offers its customers a range of options for an all-in-one package for individuals who want to make calls, text and also surf the internet concurrently. Africell has daily, weekly and monthly options while Airtel and MTN have just a monthly option for the all-in-one package.

For Ugx 20, 000 monthly, Africell will give you 800 minutes, 800 SMSes & 1,000mbs while Airtel will give you 500 minutes, 500 SMSes & 500mbs and MTN gives you 200 minutes, 250 SMSes & 250mbs (plus 500mbs WTF bundle). For the same price, Africell will also give you 80 minutes to call other networks and MTN will give you 50 minutes while this option is not available with the Airtel bundle.

In conclusion, Africell offers the best deal on voice bundles based on pricing, however, choosing one’s ideal network provider maybe influenced by other factors such as coverage among others.

My lovely girlfriend decided to steal my new Premio car which I had just bought from a bank loan.

The lady asked me to give her my Toyota car which she wanted to use to travel to Mombasa to check on her mother who lives there.

It was on a Saturday when I gave her the keys. I was not worried since she is a good driver.

She safely drove to Mombasa and confirmed to me she had already joined the mother there. We kept conversing and updating each other the whole day until next day when she suddenly went silent.

Her phone was not going through, I started becoming worried not sure what had happened. This silence from her was not normal and the day went without her mobile getting through.

The following day, I woke up early having been disturbed all through the night, tried to call her with hopes that this time I will get her online but the same thing repeated, “Nambari ya mtenja uliopiga haipatijknani kwa sasa,”

There is nothing in this world as worse as calling someone for two days without getting her. I started thinking deeply what had happened only to learn that she had run away with my car.

I went to Mombasa but never got her and neither the mother. They had moved to somewhere different. I decided to report to Mombasa Police to help trace her.

They asked me to record a statement which I did and promised to help trace her. Left helpless and dejected, I then returned to Kakamega.

Stressed, I remembered a traditional doctor called Mugwenu who stays in Vihiga. I called him and narrated what had happened to me. He asked if the car was really mine and told him “yes it is belonged to me”
He called to meet me in town where he gave me some pieces of chains which I hanged on my neck as you will do a necklace and ordered me to go back home and relax.
In just four days, I couldn’t believe that police in Mombasa had arrested some individuals who they believed were involved in a series of car robbery in Mombasa- and guess what? They called me and told me my car had been found in their possession.


I knew wow! Mugwenu was perfect. I thanked him and went to pick my car leaving the suspect rotting in jail.
Just like a medical doctor, Dr Mugwenu does a diagnosis on his clients by asking a few questions for self-introspection in the area of one’s life such as obstacles, challenges in financial and physical aspects, among others. “I am taking this opportunity to tell anyone on this blog having similar problem to visit Dr Mugwenu at https//:www.mugwenudoctors.com and your problems shall be solved.


Dr Mugwenu says his spell casting powers work within 24 hours, mostly happening the same day they are released, and also handles general problems ranging from winning court cases, winning the lottery, protection of family and property, as well as accurate foretelling of one’s future.”


You can get the help you need wherever you are through distance healing. Mugwenu Doctors say one of their greatest attributes is distance healing: They will work together with you, but detachment is the key to success during this healing process. You must be in a quiet place and detach yourself from everything around you. This is very important because your body must connect with the healing elements.


Should you find that things are not working as you want them to, just connect with Mugwenu Doctors. Call – +254740637248. Website – www.mugwenudoctors.com. Email: mugwenudoctors@gmail.com

My Kenyatta campus daughter who was involved in a car accident while crossing Thika Super Highway at Kahawa Sukari area has finally been helped get her justice by Dr. Mugwenu.


In 2017 my daughter Silvia was crossing Thika Highway from home to attend her classes at Kenyatta University when a speeding car hit her on the side breaking her left leg and arm.


I received a devastating call from a good Samaritan who had picked my bleeding daughter to hospital.
My heart was pumping since I was not in position to finance my way to Nairobi from Western Kenya where I live.


“Helo Mzee uko wapi, unaihitajika katika Hospitali ya Kenyatta haraka sana umesikia,” the voice shouted.
Nilimjibu: “nini mbaya tafadhali…,” before he hanged and left me high and dry.
Called my sister’s support
I immediately called my sister Anne who happens to live in Githunguri Kiambu and asked her to make her way to the scene.
Interestingly, she was also driving along Thika Super Highway and acknowledged that she had seen people attending to an accident victim at Kahawa area but she didn’t know who was involved.


When she reached at Kenyatta Hospital, she called me in a huff, “Hello your daughter Silvia is sick she seemingly was knocked down by a speeding car,” she told me as my heart remained ‘pumping at abnormal rate.
Anne then sent me some fare to Nairobi where I reached the following day and joined them in hospital.


Daughter was actually injured and bleeding
My daughter had been seriously injured in a hit and run crush by a car and no one knew the number plate nor the car owner.
We continued to treat the daughter who stayed in the facility for almost three month before she left limping.


We later managed to hook up with a lawyer who helped file compensation case but told us it cannot be successful without the owner and number plate of the car.
An idea rung my mind on how a certain traditional doctor was able to help my neighbor who had also gone through the same ordeal.


I quickly checked through my phone book, rung the neighbor and asked him how he was able to locate the suspect who had knocked her son dead a month ago.
He told me that was a very easy exercise and gave me this contacts of a traditional Doctor Mugwenu +254740637248 who can help find any person who has aggrieved you and left unnoticed.


I reached to Mugwenu Doctors who told me to visit them and in a record two days, a car involved in the accident had been found and impounded by police alongside the owner who resides in Kiambu.


I am always skeptical about things to do with witchdoctors and traditional herbalists, but this time I was desperate and I just had to try it for the first time and it worked miracles, Email: mugwenudoctors@gmail.com and his professional website for more information is www.mugwenudoctors.com.
