Leading telecom MTN Uganda is celebrating yet another milestone, hitting the 15-million subscriber mark in July 2021 to further cement its position as the most trusted and reliable service provider in the industry. And as part of the celebration to mark this achievement, MTN Uganda has revealed it will give away Shs15m to its 15 millionth subscriber.

The money will be shared among 11 people, with the lucky 15 millionth client taking the lion’s share of Shs5m and the 10 people pocketing Shs1m each. The lucky subscriber will choose the 10 customers he wants to share the Shs10m.

MTN Uganda CEO Wim Vanhelleputte noted that the landmark achievement was a huge one that should have a befitting celebration. “This is a major milestone for us as MTN Uganda and worth celebrating. So, we are giving away a Shs15 million cash prize to that lucky customer,” said CEO Vanhelleputte.

“S/he will take home Shs5 million for himself and share Shs10 million with 10 other MTN customers, who he/she will randomly draw. Each of the ten customers he chooses or draws will bag Shs1 million. This could be anyone, anywhere on the MTN network in Uganda.”

The 15-million subscriber achievement means that over a half of Uganda’s 28 million telecom subscribers use MTN Uganda. This is an emphatic demonstration of the telecom’s continued market share leadership.

“The management and staff of MTN Uganda are proud to have achieved the 15 million subscriber landmark,” said an excited Vanhelleputte. “We are grateful to our subscribers, the Government, our regulator as well as technology partners for their support to us in achieving this.” (For comments on this story, call, text or whatsapp us on 0705579994, 0779411734, 0200900416 or email us at
