“We appreciate that many people rely on MTN MoMo to facilitate various aspects of their lives and therefore believe that this reduction in withdrawal fees increases the benefits that have made mobile money such a transformative service over the years,” Mutana said.
Mutana further noted that the objective of Mobile Money is to promote a cashless economy and advance the numerous benefits that come with a digital life.
“Therefore, by making Mobile Money fees more affordable, we as a country can easily move towards achieving a safe, efficient and affordable way of putting money in the hands of millions of Ugandans,” Mutana said.
