Addressing media and various stakeholders at the launch held at Kampala Serena Hotel on Wednesday, Airtel Uganda Managing Director Mr. V.G. Somasekhar expressed excitement about this milestone and reaffirmed their commitment to continue improving their network.

“Not very long ago, we celebrated countrywide 3G connectivity and promised our subscribers and all Ugandans that we will not stop investing in our network to ensure that they have fast and reliable access regardless of their location,” Somasekhar stated, adding; “To fulfil that promise, there were a number of steps that we had to go through; including the launch of new masts, upgrading of old masts, testing and many other technical processes. I am glad that today, we have fully fulfilled that promise.”

Commenting about this milestone, the First Deputy Prime Minister and Deputy Leader of Government Business in Parliament General Moses Ali said; “The government recently passed the Broadband Policy, which is a major step towards the social and economic development of this country. As per the policy guidelines, the mandate of telecom companies is to provide a high-speed, reliable and universal internet connectivity. I applaud Airtel Uganda for taking the lead in this initiative.”

“In order to transform the Ugandan society, we are ready to collaborate with the private sector. Organisations like Airtel Uganda are playing an important role in boosting trade and business and contributing to the achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals and Vision 2040,” he added.

By Our Reporter

Ugandan beauty and cosmetics brand, Minama has released a new skin care product on the market.

The brand’s C.E.O Afsana Pey S.K has announced the release of its Minama skin oil, which goes on the market today, in Uganda and across the continent.

“Minama skin glow oil has really helped many of our clients and myself, particularly for ailments like Acne, blemishes, black spots, scars etc. It also clears your skin and leaves it glowing with that beautiful shine,” she explains.

When asked what was her motivation for setting up the skin care line, Afsana explains that she suffered with skin issues for a long time, and being as there weren’t many solutions available on the market, she decided to start up her own skin care line, whose many other products include lotions, soaps, creams and other cosmetics.

“I know first-hand how bad skin can affect you, especially your confidence, so I started the line to help others and myself. We have more products launching in December, and we can’t wait for all our clients, old and new to get their hands on this skin oil,” she concludes.
