Speaker Kadaga summons UCC to explain the delay in re-instating airtime scratch cards
The speaker of parliament has summoned Uganda communication commission (UCC) and parliament legal team tomorrow to explain the way forward on reinstating the airtime scratch cards.
According to Speaker Rebecca Kadaga, the issue of bringing back on board the scratch cards regardless of the easy load system is so on high demand by the masses since this is the easiest way they access airtime as they transact business.
In August last year, Government together with telecommunication companies reached consensus to stay the usage of airtime scratch cards as this will gradually phase out as the public is fully sensitized on the easy load system.
However, since then, no further action was taken to see the scratch cards back in use hence Kadaga now wants UCC to explain the way forward.
