The items included caddy range gear comprising shorts, shirts, bibs, leg guards, shin guards and helmets as well as ball picker equipment.

In addition to this, MTN Uganda has sponsored one of Uganda’s leading golf talents and upcoming pro-golfers, Deo Akope, over the last three years to the tune of Shs 101 million.

Akope has participated in a number of international golf tournaments under the MTN sponsorship and has flown not only the MTN flag high, but the Ugandan flag as well.

Speaking at the prize giving ceremony, the MTN Uganda Chief Marketing Officer, Ernst Fonternel, said MTN was proud of the role it’s playing in bridging the gap between business owners and their clients by providing business solutions which simplify the way they can run their businesses.


“Golf offers a clear bridge between sports and business, as many of the members of the Golf fraternity are also MTN Business customers,” Fonternel observed.

Commenting at the same event, the MTN Uganda GM MTN Business, Mr. Reginald Kafeero, said that the MTN Business proposition is clearly set out to fill a gap in the needs of MTN’s corporate customers.

“MTN Business offers a wide range of business solutions through an array of technology options to suit our customers’ business needs both in and out of the office, locally and internationally. Customers can focus on their core business and MTN will deliver the needed communications solutions,” he said.

Kafeero further noted that MTN business is the arm of MTN Uganda responsible for providing business solutions that will satisfy the needs of its corporate clientele.

“The MTN Business vision is to provide converged communications solutions for our customers through a dedicated team that manages the entire product portfolio to ensure a seamless experience for its customers,” he stated.

Kafeero also clarified that SMEs and business people who have been looking for world-class tools to improve their business efficiencies will find the MTN solutions attractive for their business growth.

“MTN’s focus is to contribute to the development of enterprises and the sustainable growth of economies in the countries of operation and MTN IT Solutions are integral to the company’s strategy to achieve this, particularly as enterprises are key economic growth drivers in most of our markets,” he pointed out.

The MTN Business Golf Day was an all-day event involving the MTN Leadership Team and more than 30 corporate companies.

For the last five years, MTN Uganda has, among others, sponsored the MTN Monthly Mug which runs throughout the annual golf calendar.

The MTN Business Golf day, which will be an annual event, further stamps MTN’s support and presence at the Golf club.

It provides a unique opportunity for MTN’s customers who are also members of the club to experience what the MTN Business brand has to offer.

MTN Uganda has consistently supported the sporting fraternity in Uganda and aside from golf, it has assisted many sports over the years including football, rugby, basketball, volleyball, table tennis and golf amongst others.

Through the MTN Arena in Lugogo, which was refurbished by MTN in 2010 to be the largest and most modern indoor stadium in Uganda and the region, MTN is leaving a legacy for Ugandans to benefit from.

The MTN Kampala Marathon, now in its 10th year, has supported many noble causes over the years and remains the flagship event on the Uganda Sports and Social Calendar.
