NAIROBI, (CAJ News) – SAFARICOM has announced the launch of BLAZE, a platform that seeks to empower youth using the power of mobile.

Conceptualized at a cost of Sh700 million (US$6,95 million), it will target the fast-growing 18-26 demographic, offering them access to a specialized platform that includes custom-made tariffs and product offerings that will leverage Safaricom’s extensive mobile network.

BLAZE will act as a sub-brand of Safaricom and is a first-of-its-kind product that was co-created with the target audience over the course of a year.

“We realize that our youth segment has unique needs that called for specialized product offering. BLAZE will introduce a number of innovative concepts into the mobile sector including the opportunity to choose your own bundle,” said Bob Collymore, Chief Executive Officer, Safaricom.
