MTN Uganda, one of the largest telecommunication companies in Uganda, on Tuesday confirmed the arrest of two of its senior employees by security operatives.

The company in a statement said its Chief Marketing Officer was arrested on Saturday upon arrival from a business trip abroad while the Head of Sales and Distribution was arrested on Monday by unidentified security personnel. MTN said the two have been deported from Uganda to their home countries, France and Rwanda, respectively.

“MTN Uganda, together with all its employees, remains fully committed to operating within and respecting the laws of the country,” the company said. The Ugandan police in a statement issued earlier on Tuesday said the duo were deported because of engaging in activities that threatened national security. The police did not give details on what activities the two were engaged in. The police urged the public to remain alert and inform security agencies reporting any suspicious activity.
