Kenya Regulators Warn MPs on Safaricom Split Bill

By Chris Donkin

Kenya’s central bank and communications regulators urged caution about imposing a law which would force Safaricom to separate its m-Pesa business from its communications unit, Business Daily Africa reported.

MPs in the country are in the process of debating its communications policies with some in favour of a law requiring operators to register mobile money services businesses separately from core activities.
