Safaricom goes off air and social media is ungovernable
On Monday morning subscribers of Kenya’s biggest mobile provider, Safaricom, found themselves out of touch with the rest of the world after the provider suffered a countrywide outage.
The outage left millions of its subscribers unable to transact and make calls. Safaricom has since explained that the outage was as a result of a technical fault and apologized to its subscribers.
But not before the mobile provider started trending on social media for the all wrong and funny reasons.
Here are a few of what people had to say about the outage.
