MTN Uganda Hits 20 Million Customer Milestone

MTN Uganda, the premier telecommunications provider in the country, proudly announces a historic milestone as it celebrates reaching 20 million active customers, reaffirming its position as Uganda’s largest telecom operator.

At a special staff town hall meeting attended by a distinguished delegation from MTN Group and MTN Uganda’s leadership, Teopister Nakyanzi from Busuula Town, Wobulenzi, Luweero District, was honored as MTN Uganda’s 20 millionth customer. Teopister, accompanied by her 20-year-old son Joshua, expressed her joy for the recognition. “I am overjoyed to be part of this momentous occasion and grateful to MTN Uganda for this recognition,” said Teopister Nakyanzi. The son couldn’t help noting the coincidence between his age and the 20 millionth customer milestone. “I hope it will be me you’re celebrating when you reach 30 million customers”, he joked.

Noting the significance of this milestone, Yolanda Cuba, the MTN Group Vice President – Southern & Eastern Africa, remarked, “MTN Uganda’s achievement of 20 million customers is the equivalent of the entire population of a sister market. This is how big this milestone is. We congratulate Teopister and encourage her to inspire others to join the unstoppable network.”

On her part, the MTN Uganda CEO, Sylvia Mulinge, who since joining MTN Uganda has been a strong advocate of increasing the number of women in both the corporate and entrepreneurship spaces, noted with happiness that the milestone customer was a lady. She expressed her gratitude to the entire team at MTN Uganda for believing and going after what looked like an insurmountable target. “This achievement underscores our commitment to connect all of Uganda. Together, we have proven that no goal is too ambitious when we work together towards a common purpose,” she stated.

As a token of appreciation, Teopister Nakyanzi was presented with a brand new Tecno Camon 30 smartphone, assorted groceries, branded merchandise, and a cash token via MoMo. The event also celebrated MTN MoMo crossing the 300,000 mark for the number of merchants using the service to receive payments for traded goods and services.
