Safaricom, the government’s primary source of dividends, substantially increased its dividends payout. Other state-controlled enterprises, like the power generator KenGen and Kenya Re, also increased their contribution during the review period, which helped to boost the total amount of dividends.

The Treasury will receive a total payout of Sh19.4 billion for its 35 per cent telco ownership due to the dividend announcement, making it one of the most significant recipients of the windfall.

In February, Safaricom paid an interim dividend to the Treasury in the amount of 8.97 billion Kenyan shillings.

Safaricom declared a final dividend of 0.75 shillings per share, which will entitle it to receive an additional 10.5 billion by the 31st of August.
