Tumuheki went on to add that because of COVID 19, she had resorted to quitting her job and starting something else but she did not have the capital to start her dream business.

“My life has drastically changed for the better” said an excited Tumuheki in praise of the MTN MoMoNyabo promotion

She named her mother, Frank Twikirize as her beneficiary. Twikirize was excited when her daughter called to ask if she had received 2,000,000 Uganda shillings that was sent to her phone. An excited Twikirize asked her daughter to thank MTN for remembering them.

Since the announcement of the sanctions and even before, several government officials had accused the US and EU of backing Bobi Wine to cause regime change in Uganda.

But according to Brian George, a public affairs officer at the US Mission in Kampala, the US doesn’t support any political party’s or politician’s agenda.

“The United States doesn’t support any particular political party or individual,” George told NBS.

“The United States was very clear from the onset that we support democratic process and that includes the conduct of free, fair and transparent elections that represent the will of the Ugandan people.

George added that Uganda had been warned of sanctions against human rights violations.

“The second point was that we were going to pay close attention to the conduct of the elections and we wouldn’t hesitate to pass sanctions on individuals who violate human rights.”

He also hinted on US government’s readiness to hold talks with Kampala over sanctions, human rights and democracy.

“The United States shall continue to have open and frank conversations with the Government of Uganda,” George noted.
