All networks in Kenya, particularly Safaricom and Airtel, are heavily filtering international routes so Nexmo is delivering via a local connection to all networks in Kenya.

Delivery Receipts are supported except for Airtel, where they are network receipts rather than handset receipts. There are substantial DLR Delays from the Kenya operators at most times so DLR latency should not be used to measure delivery time. 

All senders to Safaricom will be overwritten to a fixed alpha to ensure delivery. If you have very large volumes of 2FA traffic to send to Safaricom please get in touch with your account manager.
