MTN Uganda removes some charges during lockdown
MTN Uganda, the country’s largest telecoms firm, has eliminated some charges on its mobile money platform to help spur greater use of digital transactions and discourage the use of cash as a way to slow the spread of the coronavirus outbreak. The company, which has 8 million mobile money users out of a total 13 million mobile phone subscribers, said it will not levy any fees on money sent between customers on its platform. Telecoms in other countries have reached out to help customers. Vodacom in SA, for example, is helping SMMEs.
