The planned merger between Airtel and Telkom Kenya is taking shape with Telkom announcing a plan to send home most of its employees to accommodate new structures. Over 500 people will be jobless after Telkom Kenya issued a 30-days notice to relevant authorities and the Ministry of Labour informing them of their plan to lay off employees in a new business strategy. Telkom Kenya has 800 employees and 575 are being laid off, meaning only 225 (25%) will retain their jobs.
