SAFARICOM ISSUES CLARIFICATION ON DPFB SMS BROADCAST

Nairobi 14th Jan 2014…Safaricom would like to issue a clarification with regards to the SMS broadcast to our subscribers from the Deposit Protection Fund Board, a body under the Central Bank of Kenya

  • The Communications Commission of Kenya (CCK) in the public's interest authorized Safaricom to send an SMS Broadcast to its entire subscriber base on behalf of DPFB.
  • The Deposit Protection Fund Board (DPFB) is holding depositors' funds previously with three defunct financial institutions; Daima Bank, Trust Bank and Fortune.
  • DPFB sought to reach out to the depositors through an SMS broadcast as they do not have mobile records of these depositors so that they can access their funds.
  • The SMS Broadcast originates from Safaricom and therefore no customer data has been shared with any external party.
