Telecommunication giant MTN Uganda on Tuesday, 03 August 2021 handed over Shs15m to its 15 millionth subscriber.
MTN Uganda Chief Executive Officer Wim Vanhelleputte handed over the money to Jamila Nalukwago at the company headquarters in Kampala.
Nalukwago has joined the telecom network under its 076 code after exhausting the old codes of 077 and 078.
Of that amount, the customer will take Shs5 million and share the remaining Shs10 million with ten other MTN customers of her choice.
Mr Vanhelleputte thanked Ugandans for supporting the telecom company and pledged better services.
“She will take home UGX 5 million for himself and share UGX 10 million with 10 other MTN customers, who he/she will randomly draw. Each of the ten customers he chooses or draws will bag UGX 1 million,” he said.
In a country with 28 million subscribers, MTN Uganda continues to demonstrate market share leadership with over 50% of total subscriber base in the country.
