  • For 30-days, customers can send up to Ushs 30,000/- Mobile Money every day to other MTN MoMo customers free of charge. The offer is meant to reduce the risk of transmission by avoiding the physical exchange of currency notes.
  • The offer comes alongside a day-time data bundle that will enable Ugandans stay on-line and work from home. Customers will get 1GB of data at just Ushs 2,000 valid between 9am and 5pm. 
  • MTN is also complementing government’s sensitization drive by availing UGX 500 million in cash and free media channel space (radio, tv, social media, SMS, call centre IVR platform) to promote the Ministry of Health’s sensitization messages.

MTN Uganda has unveiled a new offer that will allow Ugandans to send Mobile Money up to 30,000/-, at no cost for the next 30 days in a move to minimize the physical exchange of paper money. The offer is meant to reduce the risk of transmission of covid-19 that has paralysed daily life across the world.

Alongside this offer, the company has also launched a data bundle that will enable customers to work from home. Dubbed ‘Work from home’, the data bundle is meant to promote the concept of ‘social distancing’ while reducing the anticipated negative impact that limited movement and contact between people, may have on both the economic and social fabric of our society.

The ‘work from home’ data bundle can be accessed through Mobile Money by dialing *150*19# or through the MyMTN app. 

“This is an extraordinary time, a time when as MTN we need to stand up and be counted on to do the right thing,” said Wim Vanhelleputte, the MTN Uganda CEO.

“Although the country has no confirmed case of covid-19, it is better for us to take precautionary measures. Government has already taken several steps in protecting her people and we feel that it is proper for us to complement government efforts in this monumental effort to tackle the threat posed by this disease,” Wim further commented.

MTN has also made Ushs 500 million available, with immediate effect, and offered the Ministry of Health free media channel space on radio, tv, social media, SMS plus its call centre IVR platform to promote prevention messages spearheaded by the Ministry of Health.

How A Young Man Reconciled Kirumira and Sudhir?

Published

on

By Staff Writer

In the aftermath of Bank of Uganda taking over Crane Bank, there was a rift between two of Uganda’s richest men. This rift would also go on to mark the collapse of the Kwagalana group. These two rich men were none other than Godfrey Kirumira and Sudhir Ruparelia.

At the time, it was becoming evident that Sudhir would end up in Luzira prison. Many of his friends would immediately begin to distance themselves from him as they saw his as some kind of plague at the time. “Sudhir was being isolated, no one wanted to even be pictured with him. BOU at the time had vowed to pursue him to the last property he owned in town,” says our source.

At the time, there were series of meetings that took place with the President and other parties. It is in this meetings that Sudhir would find the last lifeline on which to hang. It was too late to save the bank but it became clear after this meetings that Sudhir would not step in Luzira as many had earlier thought.

Kirumira who used to be a regular at Sudhir’s kabira country club became very absent. He used to go to Kabira every morning to read newspapers. He shifted to Africanna. Sources within Sudhir’s camp interpreted this as the final cut.

These strains went across to the children. The two best friends, Gideon and Rajiv each became rare in the other’s life. It is said that Rajiv and father went on a blocking spree. They were keeping their circle smaller. Around the same time, they would go on to fall out with the Chimpreports boss, Giles Muhame.

But how did Kirumira make it back to the good books of Sudhir? It is said, for this to be possible, it took the diplomatic brokering of a young man in this city.

“There is a young man who appears to have no power in this city. But it is him who singlehandedly brought the two back to talking terms. He even ensured that Gideon Kirumira became a regular at the Rajiv rally events. This young man, a lover of the skirt would then walk to Sudhir and advise him to begin rebuilding for the future. He told Sudhir how every friendship goes through strains. Both camps had tried to outfist each other. One camp thought the other wanted them implicated for the Kasiwukira murder. The other thought it had collaborated with the mafia to take Crane bank. It was time for the two camps to accept that something went wrong.

The cheerleaders in both camps were partly responsible for the rift. “You know the cheerleaders will spread all sorts of rumours as long as that means Sudhir or Kirumira would keep them even closer,” our source tells us.

With the reunion of the two rich men, could it imply the rebirth of the Kwagalana family? We shall return with a full story of how beef killed Kwagalana and how Uganda’s rich men are baying for each other’s collapse and why Forbes dropped Uganda from its assessments.

Speaking during the premier, UBL Public Policy and Sustainability Manager David Onyango said Uganda Breweries decided to use music to amplify the responsible drinking message and reach consumers in their favorite hangout spots where the consumption happens.

“Enjoying alcohol is part of life in many societies around the world. It is a part of how people socialize and celebrate. However just like other products, when misused, alcohol can lead to individual and social harm. As a responsible company, UBL we would like to see consumers of our products make responsible drinking a valued and enjoyable part of life.” He said.

Uganda Breweries Limited has for the last 7 years been running the Red Card campaign to inform, sensitize and engage consumers about the dangers of alcohol misuse.
