Airtel Wins Case Against Safaricom to Open Up M-Pesa
Jul 28 14
The Communications Authority of Kenya (CAK) has ordered Safaricom to open up its M-Pesa platform after Airtel Kenya filed a petition, accusing Safaricom of unfair competition. It has also prohibited the mobile operator from levying extra charges on competitors using its network. This brings to an end a long battle between Airtel and Safaricom over exclusivity of the service, which barred M-Pesa agents from engaging in business with other mobile operators. In a letter signed by CAK, and sent to Safaricom and Airtel on Friday July 25, CAK ordered Safaricom to effect the directive before July 18. CAK in its ruling also declared that Safaricom's oversight shall be limited to its business with the agents. Each mobile money service provider shall also be responsible for ensuring compliance with the Central Bank of Kenya regulations.
