Kenya Just Got The Internet; Means Postal Service Is Outta Here!
For most Americans, this was a reality we faced near the end of the last century.
For the citizens of Kenya, it’s a new and exciting time. As the country moves closer to “full blown” internet use, the national government is starting to realize the future of the Postal Corporation of Kenya is in serious jeopardy.
A meeting of the shareholders for the Postal Corporation of Kenya did little to solve the issues, as one would assume. And while Kenya has just recently been treated to the benefits on the Internet Age, advancements such as online fax service, handheld wi-fi from cellular phones, and faxes to email are not far behind.
Some plans the group has thought of; strategic partnerships with other businesses, such as airlines and courier companies, or even using helath centers and public schools as a means for reaching customers.
Despite all the panic, the Postal Corporation of Kenya does still produce profits each month, according to published reports.
“We have a broad network that beats all the banks together and we will continue to improve our services, so that we do not only survive in the market but also increase our profitability,” said Post Master General Hussein Ali.
