Data privacy.Time to Ammend Safaricom T&C

Hi Listers,

While they are at it perhaps they should also look into SIM card
registration and the rise in SIM Card fraud. For example as reported in the
Business Daily
www.businessdailyafrica.com/news/Doctor-sues-Safaricom-over-SIM-card-fraud/539546-5588592-h6xh6y/index.html
a
Doctor is suing Safaricom after fruadsters registered his sim card and used
it to convince someone that the doctor was selling his land. This turned
out to be false the doctor ended up having to pay 300,000 shillings to the
person after it became clear the deal was fraudulent.

This should be a particular area of concern given how most of our digital
presence appears to be heavily dependent on our phone numbers mostly
Safaricom.

Kind Regards

Tevin Mwenda Gitonga
