Telkom Kenya is Back

  • Telkom Kenya has relaunched almost 12 months after the exit of the immediate former majority shareholder, the Orange Group (formerly France Telecom), – who sold its majority stake to private equity firm, Helios Investment Partners. The Kenyan Government owns 40% of Telkom. 
  • “We are committed to gradually restoring Telkom’s relevance in Kenya’s social and economic dynamic to transform it into a viable market player in the telecommunications sector and a profitable national asset,” says Company Chair, Eddy Njoroge.
  • Telkom also launched a 4G network with free daily data in all major towns and also  entered the home broadband market offering 4G to homes in an offer dubbed ‘Home Plan’..
