NIKO NA SAFARICOM LIVE MOMBASA LEG CALLED OFF

October 30th 2012… Leading integrated communications service provider Safaricom Limited has called off the Mombasa leg of the "Niko na Safaricom Live" tour citing security concerns at the Coast. This move will affect road shows, campus storms and the eventual concert slated for the 10th of November. 

Company CEO said, "This was a tough decision because we were looking forward to having a wonderful engagement with our customers in Mombasa. The cancellation is a precautionary approach to the Security situation in Mombasa and not a response to any specific threat. We recognise the hard work that is being done to improve security at the coast yet at the same time we must put the safety of our customers, staff and operations the centre of all we do." 

The 5 month "Niko na Safaricom Live" entertainment extravaganza kicked off in Meru in September, then moved to Kisumu, Eldoret with the Grand Finale in Nairobi on the15th of December. A cross-section of Kenya's leading entertainers including Camp Mulla, Jaguar, Jimmi Gait, Sauti Sol, Size 8 and comedy sensation Jalango have been headlining the 'Niko na Safaricom Live' concerts across the country.
