Saraicom logo, trust for african rock artThrough the efforts of TARA and the Abasuba Community Peace Museum. Safaricom (one of Kenya’s telecommunication giants) has installed a network mast near Mawanga rock art site.

For this isolated community who haven’t been able to use mobile phones since the opening up of communication networks, this is a big development. Of importance to TARA and the Abasuba Museum is the improvement of communication with the rock art tour guides, which will improve the visitor experiences. Daniel Onyango, the Mawanga rock art site tour guide, says that he can now communicate with his fellow tour guides at Kwitone, the nearby hotels and the museum without any hitches.
