The new logo whose underlying concept is an arrow that points upwards or forwards in the mix of its corporate colors Green, White and Red seems to have not impressed KoT.
This has not been received well.
Does that arrow point to where your data bundles usually Go ? 😒

Despite the sentiments, Safaricom says there a ‘big reveal’ tomorrow and that Kenyans should wait.
I wonder if they tested this before unveiling it because what in the ghetto? Ama they paid the focus groups in bundles 😂😂😂😂😂? We thought Simple. Transparent. Honest. was interesting but heh https://t.co/d7iRpffZLp
