Nairobi - Safaricom subscribers have for the past few days been experiencing outages, causing a lot of inconvenience to the over 14 million subscribers who use the on the M-Pesa function service to transact over Sh2 billion daily.
Speaking on Tuesday to Daily Nation on Tuesday, Bob Collymore, Safaricom Ceo said that they too are fed up with the outages. The real solution can only occur when we bring this platform back to Kenya.
Collymore was referring to the limited leeway that they have to manage the system as Vodafone UK is the one charged with managing the M-Pesa system.
Vodafone UK is Safaricom’s single largest shareholder and leases to it the M-Pesa system. The system is currently hosted in Germany and serves various countries including Tanzania, South Africa and Afghanistan.
