The Kenyan government has received 10 Iridium satellite phones from the International Telecommunication Union (ITU). The devices have been issued to the Government for use in case of any emergencies or threats within the country.

The government will have the phones at its disposal for co-ordination of emergency services including: floods, security and others situations, particularly in areas with poor or no network coverage on the terrestrial platform.

Recently, ITU deployed 35 satellite mobile phones and 10 Broadband Global Area Network (BGAN) terminals to Nepal. The equipment ensures timely flow of information that is much needed by government agencies and other humanitarian actors involved in rescue operations.
