Safaricom and smaller rival Airtel Kenya agreed to end a trademark dispute relating to the M-Pesa logo, said the Daily Nation.
Earlier this month Safaricom, Kenya’s dominant operator, sued Airtel for using a trademark it claimed was identical to its M-Pesa logo.
This week the two operators told the High Court they wanted to settle the dispute out of court. The court barred Airtel from using the logo, pending the outcome of talks.
