MultiChoice purchases Namola, an emergency response app.

The on-demand emergency response app Namola was purchased by MultiChoice.

According to MultiChoice South Africa CEO Nyiko Shiburi, “Namola is a part of our strategy to grow our ecosystem beyond entertainment and to provide a set of consumer services that fulfill the needs of our clients.”

Namola connects folks in misery with its community of responders for varied emergencies

These responders are sent whenever there is a misery sign across the country.

Customers can use the app to request the arrival of the nearest vetted personal or public safety and medical response unit.

Additionally, Namola provides SOS capability, allowing users to select the emergency type and have the best medical or security services sent to their location.

Users get access to sensitive emergency services as well as fire, accident, medical, security, and police services.

From October 26, 2022, subscribers will be able to add the Namola app to their DStv bill, according to MultiChoice.

Individual plans start at R29 per month, couple’s plans cost R59, and family packages cost R99 per month.

Customers with DStv Awards can register for three months of free family access or one month of free access for couples or individuals through the MyDstv app, where they can claim Namola rewards. They will then pay a lower premium after that.
