months after shareholders of the troubled telecom firm run to court seeking
bankruptcy protection from its angry creditors. On May 16, 2018, Fred Otunnu, the director
of Corporate Affairs at the Uganda Communications Commission (UCC) confirmed

company over mounting debt pressures. “Vodafone is undergoing liquidation.
