Our Heritage

Our Heritage, Choir with hands lifted in song.

It was based on an analogue ETACS network and was upgraded to GSM in 1996 (licence awarded in 1999). Safaricom Limited was incorporated on 3 April 1997 under the Companies Act as a private limited liability company.  It was converted into a public company with limited liability on 16 May 2002.

By virtue of the 60% shareholding held by the Government of Kenya (GoK), Safaricom was a state corporation within the meaning of the State Corporations Act (Chapter 446) Laws of Kenya, which defines a state corporation to include a company incorporated under the Companies Act which is owned or controlled by the Government or a state corporation. 

Until 20 December 2007, the GoK shares were held by Telkom Kenya Limited (“TKL”), which was a state corporation under the Act.  

Following the offer and sale of 25% of the issued shares in Safaricom held by the GoK to the public in March 2008, the GoK ceased to have a controlling interest in Safaricom under the State Corporations Act and therefore the provisions of the State Corporations Act no longer apply to it.
