One SIM-card for Uganda & Kenya?

I wonder if any of the African based companies issue a SIM-card that can be used in both countries at regular (cash credit) costs? Would convenient to keep the same number during my 8 weeks in Kenya and Uganda.

Thanks a lot

MTN usually sorts it out, although you may pay slightly more for your SMS in the 2nd country. Be aware actual calls, even in-country, suck up credit like mad - most ppl just text one another. Then you have to follow-up with a call, when you haven't had a reply.

Sending texts overseas from here isn't too bad, it's 220 /- for a text with MTN, which is about 5.5 pence, or 8 cents, approx.
