I wonder if it is wise to associate the Safaricom consortium in Ethiopia with Kenya Govt[Uhuru going for the license award]. small small tiffs between Kenya & Ethiopia could see a ODM resist kind of loss of subscribers. Orascom offices in Algeria get stoned when Algeria lose to Egypt in a football match.

Was the issue of the 5% ownership ever resolved/revealed? Therein could lie your answer.

This information is extremely vital, I wonder why they have been so cagey about it.

Safaricom to Create Highest Quality Network in Ethiopia

Safaricom is betting on creating the highest quality network in Ethiopia to beat the competition in its new market. The company which recently won the bid for a telecommunications license in Ethiopia said it plans to use part of the $8.5 billion investment to establish the best quality network in the fast-developing nation.

Safaricom’s expansion into Ethiopia will partly be funded by the US sovereign wealth fund International Development Finance Corporation (IDFC) which signed a $500 million loan deal with the telecommunications company in December 2020. The rest of the funding will come from internal equity and other debt sources, the company said during a management call on Wednesday night.

The telecommunication giant revealed that it will maintain its dividend policy of distributing 80% of net profit to investors.

It seems hii mambo ya kulipa fare na MPESA will not be easy, matatu guys are simply stuck to their ways.


The matatu industry is special. Mpesa is now a universal payment system in Kenya. Si ata Ndege tunalipa na mpesa?
It's one thing paying 4k+ by M-Pesa and another paying 20-100 using M-Pesa.


No difference! I use Mpesa at the kiosk, shoe shine, barbershop, mama mboga and many other micro businesses.


You have CBK enforced waivers to thank for that. Before Covid, every single one of those micro businesses insisted I send them "pesa za kutoa", if i wanted to pay by M-pesa. From Jan2021, they'll revert back. Effectively, only the middle class, (about 30% of the population?) pays M-pesa fees. I would like to see the low income guys buy goods from you via "Pay Bill" with a fee, when they have the option to pay by cash.


As expected....
