DStv 1

Ni mwisho wa wiki. Nyumba imejaa wageni. Umewaalika marafiki zako kushuhudia mechi kali ya kukata na shoka. Nyuma ya nyumba moshi unafuka. Nyama (nchi za magharibi hupenda kuita barbeque au “BBQ”) inaandaliwa na mapochopocho mengine kibao. Kila mpita njia anajiuliza kunani pale leo. Majirani zako hawashangai sana. Umekuwa mstaarabu kwa kuwaambia kinachojiri na wengine umewaalika. Mke na watoto wamekwenda kuwasalimia wazazi wako. Wanajua kabisa panapokuwa na mechi kubwa kama hii, unakuwa upo lakini haupo. Wamekupisha.

 

Rafiki zako wanazidi kumiminika. Bahati nzuri una nyumba yenye nafasi ya kutosha.Kila mmoja akiwa ametilia jezi ya timu aipendayo. Mara ya mwisho ulipokutanisha marafiki zako namna hii, mambo hayakwenda vizuri kwa upande wako. Mlichapwa 3-0. Ulinuna kiasi kwamba marafiki zako ilibidi waondoke kimya kimya wakiwemo wale mnaoshabikia timu moja.

 

Leo ni siku tofauti.Una uhakika zaidi wa ushindi. Umekuwa msimu mzuri kwenu tangu kocha Mreno alipochukua mikoba. Kila anayeingia amekuja na vinywaji. Ungedhani kuna “Bottle Party”. Kama ilivyo kawaida kunako mechi kubwa za namna hii,utani wa jadi umepamba moto. Leo lazima tuwanyamazishe. Hamtoki wala kuchomoa. Umejawa na shauku kiasi kwamba umehakikisha rafiki yako Tanesco leo hakati umeme!

 

Hatimaye rafiki yako mtangazaji wa kipindi cha michezo katika radio maarufu anaingia. Kila mtu anafurahia kama vile magoli ndio yameshaanza kumiminika. “Mbona bado hamjawasha TV? Hamjui raha ya mechi ni uchambuzi wa awali pia?”, anang’aka rafiki yako kwa sauti yake inayomfanya awe mtangazaji mahiri na anayesikilizwa na watu wengi zaidi.

 

“Kweli aisee”, unakubaliana naye na kujongea kwenye TV. Unaitunza na kuipenda sana TV yako ambayo ni zawadi kutoka kwa mkeo mlipokuwa mnatimiza miaka 10 ya ndoa. Leo siku nzima hujaigusa. Ulikuwa “bize” na maandalizi na pia ulitaka ipumzike nayo iwe tayari kwa mpambano. Unaiwasha na mara moja unagundua kwamba umefanya kosa la mwaka! Ulisahau kulipia akaunti yako na hivyo umekatiwa. Kijasho chembamba kinaanza kutiririka kwenye paji la uso. Aibu.

 

“Naona umekatiwa huduma Amazing”, anakupa ukweli rafiki yako kwa kutumia jina la utani walilokupachika. “Usiwe na wasiwasi, ngoja nikwambie cha kufanya”, anadakia rafiki yako mwingine mtaalamu wa masuala ya tekinolojia na mawasiliano.

 

“Siku hizi ni rahisi sana kwenda sambamba na akaunti yako ya DStv kupitia huduma binafsi za DStv. Unaweza kujua taarifa muhimu kama vile mara ya mwisho ulipolipia huduma yako na lini unapaswa kulipia tena na wapi kwa kulipia”, anaanza kukupa darasa rafiki yako huku wengine wakisikiliza kwa shauku huku wakiangalia saa zao kuona muda unavyokwenda.

DStv2

 

“Ili kuepuka usumbufu na karaha siku hizi unaweza kutambua kiasi cha kulipia na tarehe ya kulipia kifurushi chako kirahisi sana kwa aidha kutembelea http://eazy.dstv.com au kupiga simu *150* 46#”, anakwambia rafiki yako huku akiashiria umpe simu yako. Unafanya hivyo.

 

“Halafu haya mambo yamerahisishwa sana siku hizi. Unaweza kulipia kifurushi chako kupitia Vodacom M-Pesa, Tigo Pesa, Airtel Money, Zantel Ezy Pesa, FNB, NMB Mobile, PayPoint, Max Malipo, DStv Customer Centre, SMA Mobile, Mobistock na Ezee Money”, anakutajia majina ya huduma zote hizo na kuwaacha wote wakishangaa anawezaje kuzikumbuka zote kirahisi hivyo.

 

Huku tabasamu likiwa linaanza kukurudia, unamwambia huduma unayopenda kutumia kila mara kulipia. Kirahisi unalipia na kupata uthibitisho wa malipo yako.

 

“Kuna njia mbili za kurudisha huduma yako. Kwanza tunaweza kupiga *150*46# na kufuata maelekezo au kutembelea http://eazy.dstv.com ambapo pia tunaweza kuondoa hiyo “Code E-16 error” hapo”, jamaa anaelezea na kufanya vitu kirahisi kiasi kwamba wote mnajiona watoto wa chekechea. Kumbe mambo ni rahisi hivi.

 

“Kuondoa hii “Code E-16 error, ukishaingia hapa http://eazy.dstv.com unashuka hapa kwenye hii menu unachagua clear error messages. Kama mnavyoona, ni rahisi kabisa na huduma zote za DStv unaweza kuzifanya bila kwenda popote”, anamalizia na mara huduma zimerejeshwa.

 

Kwa bahati au ngekewa ya aina yake, timu ndio kwanza zinaingia uwanjani. Ilikuwa iwe wikiendi karaha lakini kutokana na DStv na huduma binafsi, mambo ni murua tena #HappyPeople
