colour-branded safaricom phone booth waiting for customers

Context of the observation

A public phone booth branded through safaricom. The stall is run by an individual entrepreneur who supplies the stall and buys the corporate phone
before launching his/her business. Through the person working at the counter the branded Phone booth seems very different compared to a classic yet abandoned phone booth.
