  1. Congratulations MTN Uganda upon attainment of close to 28 years of operation in Uganda. As UCC thinks of renewing the licence by Oct 2018_ some concerns need addressing. First, there is a lot of information leakages about customers from the staff. This is especially the concern of mobile money operating firms or customers. The moment you have note than a million on the MM account, then you begin receiving calls from conmen or women, one wonders how they know this if there is no connivance with the staff or technical staff internal??!! Not long ago the Hon Minister and MPs were blocked from their officially registered lunes and friends were fleeced of their money.
    Secondly, MTN Uganda remits 17bn/- every weekend to RSA, how much does the telecom company spend on improving the lives and businesses of the entrepreneurs that deal in their products including mobile money?? Granted the MTN run generates funds for various social causes ranging from cancer, water supply to other health issues but more needs to be done to improve their business SME partners dealing in their products.
