Safaricom, Airtel, Telkom switches off illegal simcards

Telcos have turned off a huge number of deceitfully enrolled SIM cards following a mandate by the Communications Authority of Kenya.

“We wish to confirm that all customers on our network are registered,” Safaricom said in a letter to Communications Authority, dated September 17. Telkom deactivated 14,373 subscribers from its system, it said in a letter sent to the CA on Thursday while Airtel said it turned off 584,134 SIM cards.

The CA had issued the order last Monday after a forensic audit of Safaricom, Airtel and Telkom Kenya network systems uncovered some customers had enlisted their lines with inaccurate and deficient information, in this manner helping criminal activities.

Mr Wangusi said another scientific review will be done in November to affirm consistence. Telcos who won't have followed the mandate risk fines of up to 0.2% of their yearly profit.
