All is not well at the MTN headquarters in Kampala, Uganda as infighting, conspiracy and fraud rock the telecommunication giant.
This has come to light after two staff were jailed for cloning and duplicating sim cards belonging to several Members of Parliament and Ministers.
The two MTN staff turned fraudsters got colossal sums of money from unsuspecting friends and relatives of the MPs and a Minister.
Nasser, one of the arrested MTN staff has already confessed cloning & duplicating Minister Namuganza’s sim card. The Minister, claimed to have lost over 400 million shs due to this fraud.
Other MPs like Ishma Mafabi (Eastern Youth MP), Gordon Bafaki (Kazo county MP), Mwine Mpaka Rwamirama (Western Youth MP) have all been victims of MTN failing to tame its thieving staff. They have also lost colossal sums of money
Nasser and his mafia network would first block the MP/Minister from receiving or making calls and would then register a new sim card using the MPs/Ministers’ telephone numbers and would access all the politician’s contacts, WhatsApp and SMS platforms.
Nasser and his fraudsters would then go ahead to send messages (sometimes WhatsApp or direct SMS’) soliciting for money claiming to be in an urgent need. The unsuspecting friends and relatives would of course treat the message as if it’s from the MP/Minister and many would automatically send the money, which would of course land in the hands of the fraudsters.
The affected MPs have now proceeded to Court protesting MTN’s failure to protect its’ customers from their own thieving staff like Nasser.
It has also been reliably established that another group of MPs are finalising plans to table before Parliament a motion to cancel the MTN license with immediate effect.
This website has learnt that whereas the MPs have no problem with arresting the thieving staff like Nasser, they contend that this is not enough and that a long-lasting option must be found. One of the options is terminating the MTN license because of the telecom company’s failure to protect rights of Ugandans which may in the end lead to insecurity as enemy forces use telecom companies to access important data and access funds in a dubious way to frustrate Government officials.
There will be a public hearing on Monday 26th February 2018 at the Uganda Communications Commission (UCC) office as UCC gives the public chance to complain over MTN’s exploitative tendencies. UCC has also indicated that investigations are under way to establish the truth behind this new racket of cyber-crime. MTN must die in its own movie for failing to protect Ugandan customer or else Ugandans will die in their own country.
