MTN Uganda over the weekend introduced unlimited voice call bundles dubbed “Kafyu Calls” that cost UGX100 to enable its customers stay in touch, with friends and families in this crisis of coronavirus that was declared a pandemic.

The calls can also be bought through using the MyMTN app as an alternative of using the USSD code. To recall, the code *160*19# is the same as to persons that want to buy the MTN work from bundles.
