Safaricom denies withholding slain lawyer's mobile data

08 July 2016, 14:39 Michael Odhiambo

Nairobi- Safaricom has denied reports that the company has refused to provide mobile data concerning the mysterious murder of human rights lawyer Willie Kimani, his client Joseph Mwenda and taxi driver Joseph Muiruri.

Stephen Chege, the Safaricom director of corporate affairs, said that the information doing rounds in media houses was misleading as the company is working hand in hand with detectives by providing requested data.

On June 28, Safaricom received a request from the National Police Service to provide call records and SMS data for the three parties listed above and the data was provided to the NPS the following day, June 29.

"The directorate of criminal investigations confirmed receipt of the data in court and it stated that Safaricom had fully complied with the court order and given them what they needed," said Chege in a statement sent to newsrooms.

Safaricom appeared in court on July 1 following a request by the Law Society of Kenya (LSK) on June 30.

During the court appearance, Safaricom once again fully cooperated with the court order to provide the information as requested and stated by the court.

According to Chege, the company was requested to provide IMEI history, subscribed data and M-PESA records. Chege added that they provided the information and the court itself confirmed that the company compiled with the orders.

He further added that some of the requests made by LSK involves information beyond their control.
