This is why Kenyans are leaving Safaricom

Safaricom PLC

Safaricom is still the biggest telco in Kenya compared to other telecommunication companies including Airtel and Telkom.

However, according to a recent report by the Communication Authority of Kenya (CAK) the telcos regulator,  Safaricom voice market share dropped 2 points from 67.1 percent to 65.7 percent.

This drop was as a result of some customers opting to use Airtel network to make calls and for longer duration at an average of 4.0 minutes on-net. For this reason Airtel voice market share increased by 1.7 percent to 30.9 percent.

It is clear that Airtel and Telkom are changing much less when it comes to voice calls  and its exactly what is making Kenyans migrate from Safaricom.

Safaricom however is still the better option when we try to consider other services including Mpesa and stable internet network.

Insurance company, AAR has announced helping needy girls within Nairobi with sanitary pads this COVID-19 pandemic.

Here is the message;

As we watch the coronavirus pandemic play out on a global scale, it’s easy to feel helpless. But no matter who you are or what your situation, you can make a difference.

At AAR Healthcare, we chose to support needy girls by providing sanitary towels through our CSR arm. Our paper recycling project has enabled us to reach 1500 girls in Nairobi. Last week we partnered with the Syokimau Resident Association and donated sanitary towels to 20 girls from the Kicheko slum. By giving back to the community during COVID-19, we hope to lower anxiety and stress, boost mood, and give a sense of purpose during this difficult time to the needy.
