This after Nagalakshmi Solutions Ltd (NLS) sued the bank for continuing to use the software after they terminated the deal in November 2016.

Judge Fred Ochieng ordered the bank to uninstall the software immediately until the case was heard which could see major operations at the facility halted.

“Pending the hearing and determination of this suit the defendant (KCB Bank) by themselves or their agents or servants or otherwise be restrained from using the plaintiff’s (Nagalakshmi Solutions Ltd) computer software.

“KCB Bank provides a systems audit report from an independent and credible systems auditor confirming that all of Nagalakshmi Solutions Ltd software applications and developments have been stripped out of the bank’s servers. Central processing and data recovery sites,” Justice Ochieng ordered on Monday.

NLS argued that it had incurred huge losses over the continued use of the software by the bank group.

The company now wants a claim of Sh2 million or Sh244 million for the 122 days the lender has used the software since the termination of the agreement.
