Commsrisk Top Ten for April 2019

April is just 30 days long, but last month smashed all records for Commsrisk traffic. Visits from Kenya, Tanzania and other African countries were many times higher than normal as readers sought information about the arrest of five Vodacom Tanzania managers subjected to bogus fraud charges, including Managing Director Hisham Hendi and Kenyan RAFM expert Joseph Nderitu. There was also plenty of attention for articles about the performance of the two market share leaders in RAFM globally, Subex and WeDo.
