CAK orders Safaricom to open up M-Pesa

What you need to know:

  • The ruling, however, comes after Safaricom said it removed exclusivity from its network in February. The telco said it sent out new contracts to its agents countrywide by March, notifying them that they were free to do business with other operators. 
  • Airtel had, however, insisted that Safaricom should go public and official on the decision to open up its network.

The Competition Authority of Kenya has ordered Safaricom to open up M-Pesa network to rivals. It has also prohibited the mobile operator from levying extra charges on competitors using its network.
