MTN has stated that its CEO in Uganda, Wim Vanhelleputte, has been deported from the country.
“MTN has not been notified of the grounds for the deportation and is working hard to establish precise reasons for the deportation,” said MTN.
“We are understandably concerned about these developments and are engaging with the authorities to seek understanding that would lead us to resolving this matter.”
The company stated that Gordian Kyomukama, the CTO of the business unit, has been appointed as acting CEO.
“Our focus continues to be on delivering the best-quality products and services to our customers. MTN Uganda is fully committed to respecting and operating within the laws of the country.”
