I believe the move will yield positive results in the manner of doing business and improving the lives of thousands of our people,” said Sumbi.
On his part, Airtel Kenya CEO Adil El Youssefi noted that, just like devolution in the system of governance, Airtel is committed to bringing mobile money, data and voice solutions closer to the people in order to increase customer satisfaction through convenience and ease of reach of the customer.
“It has been our endeavour to enhance the customer experience for all our customers across the country. Through this new customer service shop, we have an opportunity to give our customers the overall retail experience that Airtel has to offer. The launch of more shops around the country is a significant achievement for us and underlines the importance of engaging with our consumers on a daily basis,” said Youssefi.
