MTN Uganda interim licence expires

Tuesday 22 January 2019 | 11:30 CET | News

MTN's 20-year licence expired on 20 October 2018, prompting the Uganda Communications Commission (UCC) to grant it a 30-day interim licence, after the Cabinet scuttled the process of getting a quick licence and demanded a review of MTN's operations.
