the customer’s ability to make calls, send sms’ and use data services,” wrote The Star in Nairobi.
Essar also states that it lost 34 batteries from the leased sites, which it claims was a result of Airtels breach of the agreement to provide daily security at the sites.
Essar is determined to recoup the $22-million from Airtel and even managed to get an injunction preventing Airtel from switching off Essar connectivity or removing their equipment at Airtel’s sites.
Meanwhile Airtel has also laid a claim of $3-million (Sh252 million) against Essar for unspecified damages.
The case will be heard before Kenya’s High Court judge Daniel Musinga on 20 July.
