Members of parliament have vowed to push for the review of all contracts of telecommunications companies due to what they call substandard services on offer and their failure to rein in on cyber crime.
Some MPs alleged that these multi international companies namely MTN, Airtel and Africell were repatriating their profits while offering poor services.
Biraahwa Mukitale, the Buliisa MP said: “When we privatised and liberalised the economy, the country got mileage but the problem is that the super normal profits from these companies is not ploughed back in the country which needs to be revised”.
The legislators said they will task government to review all contracts of these companies.
Luttamaguzi Ssemakula, the Nakaseke South MP said some telecommunication companies have got god fathers which makes them to behave like they are above the laws governing the country.
“To terminate these contracts, government should have quick alternatives to the telecommunications industry and since we don’t have them, it’s high time we put measures to tame them,” he said.
Recently, Persis Namuganza, the minister of state for Lands revealed that her phone had been hacked and some of her phone contacts were victims of conmen.
