The editor of this site a few years ago warned Kenyans about Safaricom’s dominance and their attempt to conquer every sector of the Kenyan economy.

This saw the bringing on board the likes of Dr. Bitange Ndemo. Who are the influential people that were bought off to kill the report?
Why the report was not first subjected to participation reveals Safaricom’s control and power to influence everything. In a nutshell, the Bill wanted telecommunication companies to split their core business from other ventures and seek regulatory approvals for each.
