Therefore Telkom Kenya now joins 115 million Orange customers worldwide and becomes the first integrated operator in the country.

“In parallel, a Foundation will be established to develop corporate philanthropy actions in the country, as has been the Orange Foundation policy for the last 20 years in countries where the Group operates.”

Kenya has 34 million populate and a mobile user rate of 30 percent so there is excellent potential for growth within the market.
