MTN faces accusations ahead of licence renewal

15 Jan 2018

MTN Uganda could face objections from rivals when it comes to renew its licence in October. A report from Kampala-based newspaper The Independent says that a group of operators under the umbrella of the Wireless Applications and Service Providers Association of Uganda (WASPA-U) have accused wireless market leader MTN of violations of regulations. They have filed a petition which raises a number of charges against MTN, ranging from the under-declaring of revenues, to unethical business practices, anti-competitive behaviour, the illegal takeover of their businesses, violation of laws, and withholding of payments to local companies. MTN has so far not responded to the allegations.
