Welcome to today’s article where you will learn how to okoa jahazi using the Safaricom line in 2022.

How to avoid taking okoa jahazi debt

If you want to avoid taking okoa, or maybe Safaricom does not yet allow you to take an okoa, you can do the following to still communicate with your loved ones;

Reverse call The Person Using your Safaricom line

You could reverse-call the person you intend to communicate with. Safaricom introduced reverse call some years back and it has really been a game changer. In this service, you basically put a hashtag (#) before the number of the person you want to call and make the call, for example, #0712345678. Note that this method only works if the person you are communicating with has an airtime balance on the phone. The recipient will be charged for the call instead of you.

While this is really a cool way in terms of emergency, it has its pecks, read more on my article on How to reverse call using your Safaricom Line

When are you required to pay your okoa jahazi balance?

How to increase my jahazi limit

Increasing your okoa jahazi limit or the amount of okoa jahazi you can be given is pretty easy. The following are some of the things you can do;

  1. Make your Safaricom line active by always recharging your Safaricom line. The more active you recharge your Safaricom line and use it, the more the amount of okoa you can be given.
  2. Pay your already given okoa debt within the given time period. Extending the period in which you are supposed to give back your okoa debt makes Safaricom lose trust in you. Therefore they might not give you okoa in future or might reduce the amount you can receive.
  3. Your line must have been active for about 6 months and you must have recharged your line in the past month.

How to opt-out of Safaricom’s Okoa service

Just like you, I also wish Safaricom could introduce an opt-out option for okoa jahazi, just like Safaricom’s other product, Fuliza. Sadly this is not yet available, so you have to resist the temptation of taking okoa from your Safaricom line.

Can I sambaza okoa balance to another number?

No, you cannot sambaza your okoa balance to any other number, even if it is a Safaricom number.
