Congratulations to the Media Age PR Team for mopping up all the major awards this year at PRAU. As a corporate citizen, MTN Uganda gives paramount importance to our contribution to the society, our responsibility towards our regulators and our commitment towards our stakeholders. The recently held SA- Uganda Trade summit was a testimony of his commitment. How would we have achieved what we did through the summit without the amazing PR team of Media Age? They helped us keep the narrative honest, they supported us with innovation, and they worked with us with such amazing commitment. Congratulations to Media Age PR for being truly the partner of the year.
