Kenya - Telephone booths are being phased out by Telkom in a couple of months

[daily nation] Kenyan telephone booths take their last call this year. Telkom Orange has decided to recall the last of the booths from the streets "in the next couple of months".

"It is an ongoing process," corporate communications manager Angela Mumo, said. By the end of this year, she says, the last of the 1,000 booths will be no more.

With their exit, the war between the majestic red, yellow and (recently) cream booths, and the mobile phone finally draws to an end, won by the wireless. But the booths bow out with dignity, leaving behind fond memories.
