MTN Uganda CEO Wim Vanhelleputte Deported

The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of telecommunications company MTN Uganda, Wim Vanhelleputte has been deported.

The immigration department of Internal Affairs executed the deportation on February 14.

“It’s true,” confirmed CIID boss Grace Akullo on Thursday night.

She, however, referred media to police spokesperson Fred Enanga for details.

Enanga told ChimpReports he was yet to get a brief as he was in Adjumani. 

Jeje’s order deporting Wim

The reason for the deportation remain unclear. 

But Wim is said to have been on bad terms with Anthony Katamba, the general manager in change of corporate affairs. 

The deportation document, which we have confirmed as authentic, was signed by Minister Jeje Odong.


He didn’t respond to our calls seeking comment. 

The deportation order provides that Wim, a Belgian National, must be “deported from and remain out of Uganda indefinitely.”

Odong ordered: “And I further declare that this order shall be carried into effect by the removal of the said Wim Van Vanhelleputte by deportation and while awaiting to be conveyed to the place of departure shall be kept in custody.”

We are told Wim was handcuffed escorted to Entebbe International Airport to board a KLM flight.
