MTN hands over Iftar items to Old Kampala and Kibuli Muslim Headquarters

By Our Reporter 

MTN Uganda and the Muslim community have had a long standing relationship. Every year, the telecom stands with the Muslim community as they observe the holy month of Ramadan by offering food and alms to the muslim community through Salam foundation.

This year’s Ramadan was launched with an Iftar dinner between MTN, Salma Foundation and the Muslim community at Hotel Africana. Thereafter as has been the norm since 2017, MTN Uganda in partnership with Salam TV once again reached out to the Muslim community to handover food and alms to the muslim community members, specifically the covid-19 Frontline workers.

Some of the targeted groups include the Muslim members in the Uganda People’s Defense Forces, Uganda Police, Uganda Prisons Services, Orphanages, Teachers and Prisoners among others. The food items include sugar, rice, maize flour, wheat flour and cooking oil.

While receiving the food items at Kibuli Muslim Headquarters early this week, Sheikh Luwalira Lubowa, Secretary-General of the office of the supreme Mufti thanked MTN and Salam Foundation for continuously remembering the Muslim Community every year.

“We thank MTN for the services they have been extending to the country and we pray a blessing upon MTN and all their work in the country. This is the 4th time in a row that they are reaching out to us and we appreciate the gesture. Many people rely on the mosque for iftar meals at the end of the day and we are happy that MTN and Salam Foundation are reaching out,” Sheikh Luwalira said.

Hajji Latif Ssebagala who received the alms on behalf of Kisaasi College thanked MTN for giving back to the Muslim community. He urged other companies to emulate MTN by remembering the communities who support them.

So far, these food items have been distributed to The Old Kampala Muslim Headquarters, The Kibuli Muslim Headquarters, Muslim Teachers at Kisaasi college and Naguru Remand Home.

The MTN and Salam Foundation Team will also handover similar items to The Luzira Prison Services as well as the Luzira Prisons Training School.

MTN Uganda’s Ian Mugambe said that as the country regains momentum following the disruptive Covid-19 Pandemic, the telco has decided to reach out to the Covid-19 frontline workers this Ramadan as a way of honoring their selfless duty to the country during the pandemic.

“On behalf of MTN Uganda, this is our way of showing appreciation for the people who have been at the frontline against the deadly virus by reaching out to them during this fasting period,” Mugambe said.

Other beneficiaries of the Ramadan handover include the Kampala Imam’s Forum, The Muslim Teachers’ Association and medical workers, who will receive their alms this week.

Alongside the food and alms, MTN has also launched a promotional offer which will automatically give customers 30minutes of talk and 100MBs of data every night between 12am to 6am, when they load airtime or any bundle using MTN MoMo. This promotional offer will end with the holy month of Ramadan and is also open to all MTN customers.

Balaam Successfully ‘Ties’ The Rain After Cashing In 500M

After experiencing heavy rains and chilly windy conditions for the past one month, many Ugandans especially those in the opposition have been hoping that today’s highly guarded swearing in ceremony would be interrupted by the usual down pours Kampala has been experiencing.

Notable NUP supporters like Viboyo of Swang Avenue even came out early this morning and prayed that it rains cats and dogs for the ceremony not to take place.

Perhaps after reading many posts from the NUP supporters wishing the ceremony to flop courtesy of the heavy rains rain, Balaam came out and assured all NRM supporters to stay firm as he had ordered his gods to tie the rains.

It is alleged that Balaam was given over 500 Million to try and tie the rains in the sky, a duty he has successfully executed.

The veteran events organizer even went on his official Facebook page and bragged how his gods (the gods of the bachwezi) wouldn’t allow the rain to pour on such an important day.

”DON’T BE INTIMIDATED WITH FAKE WEATHER FORECAST, NO RAIN TILL AFTER OUR EVENT IN KOLOLO WE ARE DECEDENT’S OF ABA CHWEZI & WE ARE A BANYAKITARA . MZEE GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR 2ND LAST TERM” Balaam posted before giving an assurance that Kampala will have normal weather today ”NO RAIN TILL AFTER OUR EVENT IN KOLOLO . WAMA MZEE FUGA PAKA PAKA 2ND LAST TERM BEGINS TODAY . KYAWA
Balaam Barugahara Ateenyi

Mean while Ugandan security operations have ramped up around the capital ahead of Today’s inauguration of President Yoweri Museveni.  That includes tight security around the home of opposition leader Bobi Wine, who accused the government of fraud in January’s election. The security measures seem to be a warning to the opposition from authorities.

It’s a beehive of activity for security personnel ahead of Today’s swearing-in ceremony for Museveni. Kampala streets are guarded by foot patrols of soldiers, rooftop snipers, artillery pieces, armored vehicles and riot police.
