Safaricom makes U-turn after shutting down Ahmednasir Abdullahi’s SIM card. The Kenyan based lawyer claims he has been using Safaricom services for like 15 years.
He threatened to move on an find another service provider and never use safaricom services again. After two hours Safaricom maked a u-turn and reconnects his sim card. Disconnection comes exactly the deadline scheduled by the CAK to ensure all Kenyans register or update their Sim cards.
On 15th October long cues were witnessed at the Tel-Com companies to beat the last minute rush.
Lawyer Ahmednasir Abdullahi
“After 2 and half decades of being a loyal customer of @Safaricom_Care they unceremoniously switched off my line this sunday…tomorrow I will move to one of the competitors and will NEVER use their service again.I knew that short man will burn to ashes the House built by Michael!”
“Glad that @Safaricom_Care restored my line…that was the sensible thing to do…and my office kesho will do the needful.”
Another popular person in the country suffering disconnection is the Nandi County senator Hon. Kiprotich Arap Cherargei. He also expresses his disappointment asking for formation of a vibrant competitor who can outweigh Safaricom.
