In June 2017 i raised an issue during the talk to Safaricom debate with
regard to poor signal from Kisamese (Ole Polos division). I am happy to
report that Safaricom went beyond my expectations and we actually have a 3
G signal. I am able to work comfortably from the location. Thanks Steve
Chege and the team of engineers that you dispatched. Mnaweza kabisa. Please
consider other areas in mashinani as well.
