MTN Uganda today announced a three year landmark sponsorship deal towards KCCA Football Club activities.
Announcing this sponsorship, Chief Executive Officer Wim Vanhelleputte remarked, “Today we launch a partnership between two winning teams. MTN Uganda is therefore proud to sponsor KCCA FC sporting activities to the tune of over One Billion Two Hundred and Ninety Million Uganda Shillings (Ugx. 1.290B). This will support club activities for the next three years. With this landmark partnership, we are of the strong belief that this will go a long way in strengthening the club activities and by default, the players’ welfare.” KCCA FC will receive Ugx. 430 million per year as part of this MTN Sponsorship package.
MTN has over the years avidly supported various sports activities in Uganda ranging from the national football and the Basketball Leagues. Rugby giants Heathens have similarly benefitted from MTN’s sponsorship of local sporting teams and star sporting performers such as golfer Deo Akope, the monthly MTN Golf Mugs, Kampala Club Chairman’s Cup to mention but a few. MTN has previously sponsored the Uganda National Football and Cricket teams.
Congratulating KCCA FC on its recent accolades in the Uganda Premier League, Wim added, “MTN as the number one telecommunications company identifies strongly with the success that you have achieved over the recent years. In our drive to make the lives of our customers better, we have similarly scored on many fronts this year from ensuring you have a robust network to connect with your fans and families, to the various innovations in MoKash, Mobile Money, Unlimited Internet, reduced internet bundles, Ayo insurance to mention but a few.”
We have a strong partnership with KCCA already as an institution, working jointly to support development of our city and this is evident in our construction of sanitation facilities from the MTN Kampala Marathon proceeds and more recently through MTN’s 21 Days of Y’ello Care where we invested in various KCCA schools in Lubiri and Bukoto.
The Executive Director, Kampala Capital City Authority Miss Jennifer Musisi lauded MTN’s support to KCCA FC. Noting that MTN’s continued support of the sporting sector continues to cement its reputation as a reliable partner in development of the city and its stakeholders. “Thank you for helping us in the transformation journey of Kampala and not tiring to partner with KCCA,” she concluded.
As a key partner in Uganda’s overall development, MTN shall continue to identify opportunities to support and sponsor in line with our mission of spreading our Y’ello wherever we operate to make our customers lives better.

Madrat & Chiko’s “Nseko Buseko” comedy show which is returning in season two promises to be bigger and better.

The comedy duo has revealed that they are shifting the show to a bigger venue where they vowed to put up an entertaining and clean performance suitable for all audiences. This was during a press conference held at Imperial Royale Hotel on Monday.

“Many of our fans missed out during the first edition of ‘Nseko Buseko’ because they turned up in big numbers beyond the capacity the venue could accommodate and were locked out. We have decided to now move to Imperial Royale Hotel which has a bigger space and can accommodate more people.” Madrat said.

“This edition will be a VIP show and we encourage our fans to bring along all their family because we will be staging an entertaining and clean show suitable for all audiences.” Chiko also noted.
