Never joke with RAILA! See how many people have migrated from Safaricom to Airtel in just a few days

...example, Mayabe confirmed that Airtel was registering an average of 900 new subscribers per day after area Governor James Ongwae paid for the services.

“We are targeting 1,500 clients per day for three days to register in Kisii.”


“We have a backup of 800 more SIM cards in case of shortage and later move to Nyamira and Migori Counties,” the Airtel Manager said.

On the other hand, more than 11, 000 new subscribers have switched from Safaricom to Airtel in Homa Bay County since the boycott begun.

  1. No wonder we are now enjoying smooth calls and internet without interruptions . NASA is the real mess in Kenya .

  2. To be honest, truth be told in that the level of service Airtel can offer the migrants falls far shorter relative to Safaricom's. One of the advantage the migrant entering the boycott is that for a short term gain, the Airtel network will serve them well for the reason that the subscribers are fewer (7% of those in the local market share). Most of low end subscribers main use of the network service is the the ease with which trading has been made possible without physical travel being in the equation which has reduced costs. The M-Pesa flagship is the most attractive service Safaricom has in the market that has revolutionalized retail banking in Kenya. The wolrd over sends reseach teams to visit Kenya and study the way M-Pesa money transfer on mobile phone devices works and how this has improved financial inclusivity across the Kenyan society. Many counties from the developed world are only now trying to play catch up. Airtel has had difficulties to come anywhere close. With it's limited infrastructure, the net work will very soon suffer from the stress the migrants bring to Airtel and they shortly be a very frustrated lot. The few wise NASA symperthisers in business will think twice and more before they agree to be played up by the political class in NASA. In addition the NASA leaders who engage in frequent travelbto Europe, Africa and Asia know very well they will need to maintain and keep their communication with their clients and financiers or donors open. They would therefore not give up their Safaricom ties any time soon. Finally, Airtel is very weak as a network and it's not available in most rural Kenya as is the Safaricom. This is the reality for a fact.

Airtel is also insufficiently capitalized which will make less attractive for investors shy to beef up investmemt implying it's ability to increase capitalization iw very weak.

  4. Lets wait and see.

  5. Am sure baba has his safcom line intact, the same applies to his cronies. only and only people who dont think for themselves will close their lines. Niko na Mpesa shop hapa Pipeline na sifungi biashara yangu. HII UJINGA YA UMASKINI SITAKI..PAND PIER. Most Kambas have not heeded to Railas instructions only Wajal** wachache maskini hapa wamefuata hio upuzi. Most enlightened Jango's frequent my shop every hour for Mpesa services. Recommendations- dont let anyone think on your behalf. conclusion- RAILA is the lord of poverty since the correlation coefficient between poverty in Luo land and Raila is alarming.
