Safaricom has lined up a bundle of goodies for its over 35.6 million customers as it celebrates 20 years of transforming lives.
The telco was launched on 23rd October 2000 and in its third decade of growth, it has renewed Its commitment to Transform Lives and keep Kenyans connected.
“In the past two decades, Safaricom has grown from a telecommunication service provider to a technology company and our customers have been a key part of this journey. We are cognizant that technology and a data-driven economy can further support Kenya’s economic growth and these will be our launchpad for the next 20 years,” said Peter Ndegwa, CEO, Safaricom.
“We started out with 17,000 customers and now we have over 35million customers, with a market share of 64.5%.”
