, NAIROBI, Kenya, Feb 27 – Safaricom has announced an agreement with Amazon Web Services (AWS), which will see the Telco become a reseller of AWS services.

security excellence, and a strong culture of customer obsession. This

transformation in Kenya,” said Michael Joseph, Chief Executive Officer,
Safaricom.
