If you are keen enough, one thing about Kenyans is that over the past 54 years we’ve been conditioned to live by the ‘it is our time to eat’ mantra.
This idea then makes the worst come out of us; we don’t care about the future, we also don’t care about the next person and so we destroy livelihoods, plunder resources, rape the land, oppress everything in order to be ahead.
We’ve failed our country, our institutions don’t work and we don’t seem to know what to do to correct this anomaly.
Bob Collymore, immediate former Safaricom CEO died abruptly in July. Since then, there have been curious happenings at Safaricom.
First, the data bundles system has had numerous problems in the past one week. Subscribers had a hard time accessing internet sites.
Hey @Safaricom_Care are your systems down?? Quick to eat my airtime to overlap on data, but your USSD to purchase said data is NOT working. Ugh! What is the issue now?

Secondly, call drop rate has gone up. Is Safaricom trying to sabotage the Airtel-Telkom merger by flexing its muscle that it runs a bigger chunk of the economy?

Thirdly, banking fraud involving Safaricom lines have increased, the prisoners at Kamiti Maximum have also devises a new way of conning Kenyans that must have the blessing of Safaricom staff to pull.
So, the phone trickery that was happening yesterday and how some folk got their numbers stolen… this is how one variation goes down:
Someone from Kamiti Customer Care calls you on a non-official Safaricom line, and your guards are up of course, and they know.

Fourthly, there is just a gut feeling that things will not be right at the end of this years at Safaricom. If we had cases of fraud at the Telco Giant, then maybe just maybe that has increased; taking advantage of the transition period.
Also, Michael Joseph, who is the current CEO, has been ‘Kenyanised’, he’s been in glbed with government for quite sometime now and ‘of you climb the iroko tree a second time, who would be more foolish not to come down with all the forehood one needs?’
Michael Joseph rewarded himself with a ranch in Laikipia, Michael Joseph has not managed to turnaround Kenya Airways, Michael Joseph was never the best manager at Safaricom during its infancy.
What I see is just an appointment of a man who can sell private data to government more than Bob Collymore ever did.
What I see is a man trying to prove himself to the Kenyan olygarchs and that means parting with bribes, holding compromising positions on got topics and above all sell data for a good fee.
