The Safaricom Board has extended the contract of Bob Collymore, the current CEO, for another two years.

Earlier report on TechMoran says the extension of Mr. Collymore contract is based on the good performance of Safaricom since he assumed office in areas such as the firm’s total revenue, customer base, SMS revenue, M-Pesa revenue, mobile data and fixed revenue growth amongst others, which have all moved the needle favourably for the company.

“We are soon to complete the fibre connection of our first 1,000 buildings to further enhance our hosted PABX, fixed calling, fixed data, cloud services and managed services offerings”, Bob said, “We continue on our Best Network in Kenya journey, with a new set of goals to increase our 3G population coverage to 80%, and to roll-out our 4G network to an additional 13 towns and cities by December 2015.”

The extension was announced recently by the Safaricom board chairman, Nicholas Ng’ang’a.
