Further information gathered by Daily Monitor, the renewal is said to run for the next 10 years.
Nevertheless, after the interview by Daily Monitor yesterday , Mr Keith Muhakanizi, the secretary to the Treasury and Finance ministry permanent secretary, confirmed MTN had agreed to pay the money.

In his statement:

“Government negotiated $100m, and they are going to pay. They have agreed,” he said without giving more details.

Mr Ibrahim Bosa, the Uganda Communications Commission (UCC) spokesperson also confirmed the figure, saying: 

“We are waiting for them to make the payments”, for the process of licence renewal to be kick started.

“They are likely to pay in two instalments and currently, meetings are ongoing to determine terms of payment,” he said.
