A message from the Chairman of MultiChoice Uganda – Steven Musoke:
Following its launch in 1995, MultiChoice Uganda has grown to become a significant player in the local economy. In addition to being a key investor, we are proud of the fact that MultiChoice Uganda has become a real partner to Ugandans by providing them access to the world’s highest quality television entertainment, and has become a leading social investor in our economy through its support for education in Uganda.
MultiChoice’s Ugandan partners are pleased to have joined with the leading provider of digital satellite TV on the African continent, and the first provider of such services outside the US.
Uganda has been a key market in East Africa, and will continue to be a focus area as MultiChoice Africa builds on its commitment to provide African content for Africans. We are excited about MultiChoice Africa’s initiatives to develop local broadcast industries, allowing Africans to find their voices and tell their unique stories.
We will continue to work closely with the Ugandan Communications Commission to develop a competition framework that benefits all Ugandans. We strongly supported the formation of the Electronic Media Bill, and our comments on the bill played a significant role in shaping the success of the legislation.
As a truly African company we are committed to providing the best possible entertainment to our subscribers, while maintaining our commitment to developing, educating and enriching the lives of the communities who are so important to us. We are confident that MultiChoice Uganda will continue to thrive and looking forward to being part of the bright future of our country.
Corporate Social Responsibility
In Uganda MultiChoice has established MultiChoice Resource Centres in sixteen schools. The MRCs have been rolled out in partnership with the Ministry/Department of Education.
The MRCs play an important role in providing access to information to schools, in particular rural schools, thereby helping to bridge the digital divide between schools with access to information and those without.
