MTN Uganda said government security personnel had raided its data centre and disconnected four of its servers, Reuters reported. The firm said in a 03 July letter to the Uganda Communications Commission (UCC) that it had "reported to police a case of illegal intrusion into the data centre and the disconnection of the four information servers." UCC's top official confirmed to Reuters receipt of the letter, a copy of which was shared on some Ugandan WhatsApp groups. It is unclear why the data centre was raided.
