The government of Uganda through the Ministry of ICT and National Guidance have signed a new cooperation agreement with MultiChoice Africa Holdings B.V (MAH) geared towards establishing stronger partnerships, digitalisation, enhancing the local content sector in Uganda, intellectual property rights protection and skills development within the applicable legal frameworks.

The signing ceremony of the memorandum of understanding (MoU) took place in Johannesburg, South Africa for purposes of technical facilities benchmarking according to the press release.

The signing ceremony, which took place in Johannesburg, was attended by Dr. Aminah Zawedde, the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of ICT and National Guidance, and Mr. Hassan Saleh, the Managing Director for MultiChoice Uganda.

The MoU covers MAH and its associate MultiChoice Uganda, as the local partner, and further provides for continued strengthening of future cooperation between MAH and the ministry of ICT and National Guidance.
