Two MTN staff deported over ‘subversive’ activities

Security agencies in Uganda have deported two people including a Rwanda national and a colleague from France over what was termed as being engaged in acts which compromise national security.

In a statement released on Tuesday, Police said they have for a long time been investigating Olivier Prentout (French) and Anne Tabura (Rwandan) and their activities before they swung into action to deport them.

“This is to inform the general public that security agencies in close coordination with immigration officials have been investigating two foreign nationals working with a leading mobile telecom company over their engagement in acts which compromise our national security, ”said in part the statement by police.

This website has however learnt that Prentout was the Chief Marketing Officer for MTN Uganda whereas Tabura has been working as the General Manager in charge of Sales and Distribution at the same company.

“We strongly believe that the deportation of the two foreigners has enabled us disrupt their intended plans of compromising our national security,” added the statement.

It is said the two foreigners were suspected to be engaged in espionage by Ugandan security prompting the move to deport them
