Parliament has adopted a report exposing so much rot in Uganda telecom whose large shares are owned by government.
The report by Budadiri west Nathan Nandala Mafabi revealed that UTL which provides telecom services to Government of Uganda, has not been audited for the last four years.
In 1998, Government used the 1997 communication Act to split Uganda Posts and Telecommunications Corporation in UTL.
Since 2011, UTL has frequent changes in top management, 6 managing directors, and eight chief technical officers.
“Uganda telecom limited (UTL) is bleeding with overwhelming local and foreign debts that is has now failed to service,” the report read in part.
According to MP Mafabi, UTL has a debt of Shs22.244 billion in regulator fees to Uganda Communications Commission and a debt of Shs8 billion in interconnection fees to MTN Uganda.
