MTN announced that it is bringing back Mahala Calls as part of its MTN Zone offering.
Mahala Calls is a promotion available to all MTN Zone prepaid and TopUp customers which offers free minutes on a daily recharge of R10 or more.
Customers can receive up to one hour of free MTN-to-MTN calls which can be used at a certain time of day.
“Customers can use the free minutes during the Mahala call hour in their current location,” MTN said.
MTN Zone offers customers up to 100% discounts on calls and SMSs and is a per-second billing plan available to MTN prepaid customers.

“We’ve listened to our customers, we know they love Mahala Calls and we are proud to bring them back this summer,” she added.
