I am personally getting tired of the incestant bad news coming from Orange Kenya. If they are not complaining about what a raw deal the Kenya government gave them , they are firing people and hiring more frenchies. They have the franchise to the single most successful smartphone this planet has seen and all they can do with it is offer it for valentines. Complete with a pathetic 300mb of data and a non-3G network .Oh and a contract that nobody really wants.
Their marketing team is top-notch though. Love the Ads.
And now this.
Now they want to sell prime property to shore up their losses. How bad can you be as a manager (of a hungry company) to have the keys to the pantry and then deciding that selling the key could fetch a few bucks.
For all the years these french guys have been here it has been nothing but funny products that are not really made for any real kenyan but for an imaginary daft East African who will embrace anything a telco throws at him. From impossible to use CDMA phones that can only be used to call, to exorbitantly priced 128kbit connections labelled as broadband, to treating the iphone like some kind of technological god that should only be worshipped not used. It all stinks of neo-colonial outlook that views ‘developing countries’ as regions hungry for tech crap. Where is the government in all this? I smell a conspiracy though it sounds rediculous so I wont share it just yet
I dont like this CEO, their style and treatment of customers. I have a 4 month old issue that is still not resolved. as we say on twitter #EPICFAIL
