Ugandan government considers move to combine telecoms authorities

7 May 2021

The National Information Technology Authority Uganda (NITA-U) could be merged into the Uganda Communications Commission (UCC) under plans to streamline government agencies and authorities. A report from Techjaja says an independent review team has proposed that NITA-U be abolished and its operations taken over by the UCC. This would give the UCC responsibility for major projects such as the National Backbone Infrastructure (NBI) scheme.
