This study presents a hybrid Quality of Experience (QoE) index that can be used as a basis of network coverage planning efficiency assessment. A spatial analysis framework is employed to evaluate the user perceived QoS offered by one of the leading cellular service providers in Kenya as perceived by consumers under everyday conditions of use. Regions where subscribers may be experiencing low service quality service were identified. The study shows that urban based consumers tend to have higher quality expectations than the rural users.

Mulei, CM, Munyua SJM, Kiptoon JC, Kariuki DI.  1989.  Some Aetiological And Epidemiological Observations Of Infectious Keratoconjuctivitis In The Bovine In Kabete Area Of Kiambu District, Kenya.. Abstract

An investigation on the bacterial organisms isolated from clinical field cases of infections bovine Keratoconjuctivitis (IBK) was carried out from data obtained from the large Animal Clinic of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Kabete, covering a period of 10 years (1978-1988). The main bacterial organism isolated was (Moraxella bovis). Other bacterial organisms isolated were (Neisseria spp, Corynbacteria, Strptococcus, Staphylococcus) and (E. coli). In three outbreaks of IBK the prevalence of thedisease was higher in the (Bos taurus) adult cow (30 percent) and calves (67 percent) than in the (Bos taurus) adult cows (4.5 percent) and calves (30.5 percent). The disease was more severe in (Bos taurus) animals than in the Bos indicus cattle. The results of the study showed than (M. bovis) is probably the main pathogen of IBK at Kabete area, and that IBK is not an economically important disease in Bos inducus as it is in the (Bos taurus) cattle.
