CA introduces new 01 cell phone prefix

Mobile phone numbers in the country often begin with the prefix zero seven. But now, you will soon be using mobile numbers beginning with the prefix zero one. Communications Authority Director General Francis Wangusi says the country has exhausted the use of the zero seven prefix hence the decision to add the new numbering prefix. Already Safaricom and Airtel have secured blocks for the new number in what is now signaling high demand for sim card use. The new prefix will accommodate a hundred million numbers.

Citizen TV is Kenya’s leading television station commanding an audience reach of over 60% and in its over 12 years of existence as a pioneer brand for the Royal Media Services (RMS), it has set footprints across the country leaving no region uncovered.

    I know we have to accept change but to be honest some of these don’t make sense to me…it will just cost time and hustle for less or zero gain to a common Kenyan.
