Safaricom for one, has really embraced this tool. Not too long ago, we saw Safaricom launch Zuri, its interactive customer care bot on both Telegram and Facebook messenger.

This tool was rather well received by people. However, not many users are on Telegram, or even Facebook Messenger. Most Kenyans are known to use WhatsApp. It was therefore, only reasonable that Safaricom would bring the same tool to WhatsApp, right?

Well, the giant Kenyan telco has just debuted the same Zuri interactive customer care bot, on WhatsApp. This means that any Safaricom user on WhatsApp can now easily interact with the bot and perform various carrier-related tasks right within their WhatsApp.
