KAMPALA – Africell Uganda has, on Wednesday, May 15, given back to the Muslim community as it unveiled the new Ramadhan internet packages.
Among the items donated to the Muslim community at Gaddafi Mosque in Kampala included foodstuffs: sugar, vegetable oil, baking flour, maize flour, rice, among others.
Speaking at the event, Edgar Karamagi the Africell Public Relations Manager said the telecom company recognizes Muslims not only as esteemed customers but also as brothers and that’s why the company has come to show support in this period of Ramadhan.
Africell Uganda unveiled the ‘Ramadhan bundle’ with a major boost for a whopping 3GB for YouTube and 1.5GB normal data for as low as UGX10,000 for three days.
“We have given back to the Muslim community because apart from being among our many customers, Muslims are brothers to us and major business players,” said Karamagi.
He thanked the Muslims for accepting the token from Africell as a way of showing support and love this holy month.
“As Africell, every year we do give out and this time, we have partnered with the Uganda Muslim Supreme Council (UMSC) as a way of showing our support to our Muslim brothers in the Holy Ramadhan,” Karamagi added.
Second Deputy Mufti of UMSC, Sheikh Waiswa Muhammad Ali, lauded Africell for the hand given to the Muslim community.
“Thank you for coming at the right time because during such times, we reach out to our fellows who have little or no access to such foodstuffs like those in prison, the sick, and to those in villages,” Sheihk Waiswa said.
The second deputy mufti prayed for blessings upon the telecom company and urged it to continue rendering services to Ugandans.
According to the company’s PR Manager, Africell spent over UGX15 millions on foodstuffs to ease the fasting.
“As Africell, we are standing with you this Holy Ramadhan. Africell is your network for calls and internet,” Karamagi added.
He concluded that the telecom company is extending the reach outs to Muslims in Kabarole and Kabale.
