All things are possible of course but this one does sound more than a little odd. A mobile telecoms company in Uganda was wiretapping the government. That’s what the claim is at least however bizarre it sounds. As ever with things out of Africa, there’s always something new, eh?
But this is what is being claimed:
The MTN Uganda chief executive officer, Wim Vanhelleputte was deported to Belgium for allegedly conspiring with other workers to record phone conversations of high ranking government officials and security chiefs.
