Kenya's Safaricom has partnered with the Environment Management Authority and the Communications Authority to launch an information booklet on the safe use of telecommunication equipment. East Africa is home to a high number of telecommunications masts, with an estimated 6,000 in Kenya alone. The latest statistics indicate that Kenya has more than 38 million active mobile phone users.

David Ongare, Director for compliance and enforcement at Kenya's National Environmental Management Authority also shares more on the issue.
