Safaricom to Fund 19-Year-Old from Kirinyaga For Being Its 30th Million Customer

By Rahab Mbiriti / March 26, 2019 | 6:56 am




Safaricom, in its celebration of the 30th Million Customer milestone on Monday 25th March, recognized its Denis Muthii as its 30th Million customer and announced that they would fulfil his ambition to join a leading technical institution in the country

Aged 19 from Kimunye in Kirinyaga County, Denis Muthii will see Safaricom fund his tuition and upkeep for a technical course in Mechanical Engineering.

Denis had been working as a carpenter for the last two months before transitioning to a mechanic a week ago, joining his brother’s garage in Embu town.

In addition to the tuition funding, Denis will also receive a mechanic toolkit, a year’s worth of All in One bundle at 10,000 shillings per month, 10,000 shillings worth of airtime per month for a year, and a Samsung Note 9 among other goodies.

Denis said he bought a Safaricom line in Kerugoya town, shortly after completing his Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education to always be in touch with his family. He said he chose Safaricom due to their amazing and affordable weekly offers.

“I chose to purchase a Safaricom line because I felt their weekly bundles aligned closely with my needs. In addition, their Okoa Jahazi service has been timely when I am short of credit, and I find their Customer Care Agents accessible and polite. I thank them for this recognition and for supporting me in my ambition to be a mechanical engineer,” said Denis.

“We are deeply humbled and honored that Denis and more than 30 million customers have chosen Safaricom as their preferred service provider. The trust that our customers have put in us is an affirmation of our strategy of always placing our customer first and of providing them with relevant and affordably priced products. As a show of appreciation, we are glad to walk with Denis in his ambition to bring to life his passion to be a professional mechanical engineer,” said Sylvia Mulinge, Safaricom’s Chief Customer Officer.

Denis joins more than 3,000 youth who are set to benefit from a separate 132 million shillings Technical, Industrial, Vocational and Entrepreneurship Training (TIVET) program by the Safaricom Foundation.

Announced in February 2019, the program will focus on entry-level training for four key areas within the construction industry specifically welding, plumbing and electrical engineering.

The funds will be used for student’s fees, teacher training, setting up smart classrooms and construction of state-of-the-art workshops.
