Liquid Telecom on Friday 17th May supported the Muslim community in Uganda by giving them food items and other gifts during this period of Ramadan.
The team led by Dennis Kahindi the Chief Executive Officer for Liquid Telecom, handed over the items to Sheikh Executive Imam Sheik Abdulsalam Mutyaba, the Executive Imam at Kibuli Mosque.
The CEO also acknowledged the contribution that Muslim customers bring to their business.
He commended the exemplary contribution that Muslim community brings to the telecom firm.
“We have a huge customer base as well as staff who are Muslims by faith. It’s therefore imperative to note that Islam faith is one of the pillars that keep our firm steady in Uganda,” Kahindi said.
He added that the company identifies and has values that always put its clients and Ugandans happiness at the forefront of its plans and operations.
“We believe that the milestone achieved by the firm is a result of the overwhelming support that we enjoy from the public and therefore we must reciprocate the love. There is no better way of doing this than joining our Muslim brothers to observe this holy month in fasting,” he said.
He further revealed the company plans to offer fixed internet connectivity to religious establishments including Mosques and Churches. He also asked government to subsidize internet services in the country so that the prices come down as business and communication goes digital.
Sheikh Mutyaba commended Liquid Telecom for the good gesture and called upon more companies to give back to the Muslim Community.
He said the holy month of Ramadhan is not only the time of fasting, but also sharing
