Before the fire their stall, (it was just a counter not a shop), used to be in the open area, near Gate 11 if memory serves, on the opposite side from Kenya Airways Customer service and the left most aerial walkway down to Immigration, of course this area could have been affected by smoke and heat damage spreading from Arrivals via the walkway. On my first trips it was actually over the walkway on the Arrivals hall side but moved to the main corridor but still where most people would pass on their way to immigration / Arrivals

Just found Safaricom on my way out last night. As reported, it's a counter selling SIM cards and phone time, rather than a shop. It's located within the departure hall (after immigration) and opposite the Kenya Airlines transfer desk at Gate 06. Useful to those in transit or those wanting to top up on the way out. They are able to register new cards too.
