In a recent announcement, the Communications Authority of Kenya disclosed that they have connected 14 sub-locations to their mobile network services in West Pokot County. These sub-locations include Akiriamet, Kiwawa, Kases, Lotokum, Meshau, Ompolion, Kola, Kachawa, Kaptolomwo, Amaler, Amboasis, Pkpogoh, and Marus.
‘‘This project will facilitate residents of the beneficiary sub-locations to enjoy a host of services, including mobile voice, data, Internet, and a bouquet of other value-added services, including mobile money transfer services. ‘Residents of Akiriamet will no longer have to climb trees to look for a mobile network signal again, because of what we have done here. They can spend that time scouting for market opportunities for their livestock, connecting with their people in the four corners of the world.’’Ezra Chiloba, the CA Director General
