Safaricom Chief Executive Bob Collymore says that the firm will not be intimidated into walking out of the repeat presidential election.
Collymore pointed out that he is ready to be prosecuted on behalf of his employees, who are innocent, should probe linking the company to electoral fraud found Safaricom guilty.
The boss warned politicians against dragging the company to politics, even as Director of Public Prosecution ordered probe on six senior Safaricom employees, whose names were submitted by opposition National Super Alliance (NASA).
"How would you feel if it was your brother, his wife and children who are exposed to this kind of risk because of a political agenda?," Collymore asked.
"I am urging all political sides to stick to politics and leave companies and businesses out of this,".
"The DCI will conduct his investigations and if something turns out to be wrong, I' m the one who should be prosecuted, not my team. I will surrender and say prosecute me, don't pick my innocent team,"Collymore said.
Collymore maintained that Safaricom remains committed in delivering the task contracted to it by IEBC to transmit election results from the KIEMS kits to servers.
"It is essential that we have electronic transmission of results and if Telkom, Safaricom and Airtel do not transmit results, then you don't have electronic results transmission. We are not going to be intimidated from taking part in the election," Collymore said.
