Welcome to Uchumi Supermarkets Limited in Uganda, Your home of Value. With shops in Kampala, Mbale, Gulu, and Mbalala soon opening.
Uchumi Supermarkets Ltd (Uchumi Supermarkets Limited) is a Kenya-based company engaged in the retail supermarkets operation. It distributes bakery, wines, meat, fish, vegetables, as well as kitchen appliances and decoration, among others. The Company operates a network of 37 branches across East Africa.
On 17th December 1976, Uchumi shareholders-Industrial Commercial & Development Corporation (ICDC), Kenya Wine Agencies Limited (KWAL) and Kenya National Trading Corporation (KNTC) – all Government owned parastatals entered into a management contract with Standa SPA of Italy. Standa, a leading supermarket group with a presence in Europe and vast retail experience was given the task to manage and train Kenyan personnel who would eventually take over the running of the organization. In the 1990’s Uchumi spearheaded the hypermarket concept in Kenya.
In early 2000s Uchumi started to experience financial and operational difficulties occasioned by a sub-optimal expansion strategy coupled with weak internal control systems.. As a result, on 31st May 2006, the Board of Directors resolved that the Company ceases operations and on 2nd June 2006, the Debenture Holders placed the Company under receivership. Simultaneously, the Capital Markets Authority (CMA) suspended the Company’s listing on the Nairobi Securities Exchange (NSE).
Following a framework agreement between the Government of Kenya, suppliers and debenture holders, the company is revived and commenced operations from 15th July, 2006 under Specialized Receiver Manager (SRM) and interim management.
The management and staff have since worked tirelessly to redeem the company. From a negative bottom line in 2006, the company has reported profits in the last three financial years. The lending banks in turn lifted the company’s receivership in 2010 and the company was successfully re-listed in the Nairobi Securities Exchange on 31st May 2011 – exactly five years to the date that it was suspended. The company is indebted in gratitude to the government, lending banks, our suppliers, customers and shareholders for their support and commitment to saving one of Kenya’s oldest strongest brands.
Recently, Uchumi sold its shares to the public which were oversubscribed by 83 per cent equivalent to Sh1.6 billion against a target of Sh896 million. The money raised through the cash call is already being used to fund its expansion and refurbish the existing branches. By the end of this financial year, we will have about six new branches. Plans are underway to open another branch in Kisumu at the Lake Basin Development Authority mall, two branches in Kigali and another one in Musanze, Rwanda early next financial year.

Airtel was launched in Uganda in June 2010 and is Uganda’s most innovative mobile phone operator, which has introduced many “firsts” in the telecommunications sector.
As a mobile operator airtel introduced affordable communication products and services that have transformed millions of Ugandans and businesses.
History of the airtel in Uganda;
CELTEL Uganda was the first Telecommunication Company in Uganda that was introduced in 1995 and transformed telephony by connecting people with the use of a mobile phone.
In July 2007 CELTEL Uganda changed its brand name to ZAIN Uganda that was eventually changed to airtel Uganda in 2010 thus joining a family of over 260 million subscribers in Africa, India and Indonesia.

On October 21 1998, MTN Uganda launched commercial services in Uganda, just six months after acquiring and signing of the license. MTN has since grown to be the leading Telecommunications Company in Uganda servicing in excess of 10 Million customers and growing.
The license required that MTN provide 89,000 lines in the first five years of operation. MTN adopted a wireless approach to providing telecommunications services to the Ugandan market which has proved to be convenient and fast in rolling out of services. Despite insufficient infrastructure (power, roads e.t.c.) MTN has covered in excess of 90% of the population, providing services in over 150 towns and villages and their immediate environments.
Mobile & Fixed Line Services
MTN offers fixed, fixed wireless and mobile telecommunication services. Mobile services became the popular choice to most MTN customers because of the convenience in getting the line and the obvious advantage of one owning a telephone, a privilege previously reserved only for the “rich”. One of MTN’s most passionately pursued goals is making telecommunications accessible to the wider population. The pre-paid option where customers get an MTN line at just UGX 3,000, pay upfront for their credit, as well as the availability of affordable handsets on the market has greatly aided this objective.
Contract arrangements are also available to mainly business and corporate market where bills are paid in arrears. Other Value Added Services such as roaming, VoicEmail, Email2SMS, Fax2mail, sharing of airtime through MTN Me2U, Call Conferencing and SMS are offered.
MTN Uganda operates services on a number of technologies, as such: GSM, CDMA, GPRS, EDGE, WiMAX, Fiber Optic and HSDPA.
As the Second National Operator, MTN is required to provide fixed line services as well as mobile. In view of the above MTN has taken on an aggressive approach in the fixed line market. MTN’s fixed lines services offers instant access, no deposits, and easy management of spending making it ideal for personal or small business use. We’ve also got tailormade fixedline solutions for Corporate organizations of all sizes.
In September 2000, MTN took a bold step to enter the modern world of telecommunications. MTN started building Africa’s first fibre-to-the-door/building network – the ‘MTN Fibre Optic Line’. The Fibre Optic Line allows MTN to provide a wide array of telecommunication services, including of course, voice and fax, but more importantly broad band, high speed data and multi-media services. Broadband services are essential to allow corporates, businesses and individuals to take advantage of the information age. Thus MTN has become your total telecommunication solutions provider, leading in both the mobile and fixedline market in Uganda.
Shared Access Services – Payphones
Over 2500 pay phones were installed in less than 24 months and the demand for these is growing. The payphones also use wireless technology and can be used to make both local and international calls.
MTN together with the Grameen Foundation set up villagePhones to provide affordable telecommunication services in rural areas.
MTN’s network coverage advantage has become one of the company’s main features. To date MTN has border-to-border coverage in 52 district capitals and over 150 towns have network coverage. From Kisoro (Rwanda border), to Busia – Malaba at the Kenya border to Arua and Koboko at the Sudan/Congo border to Kabale and Kisoro close to the Rwanda border.
Quality Of Network
MTN as a group prides itself in provision of quality services. MTN has invested heavily in the best equipments available. The MTN Uganda switch installations boast of the most up to date infrastructure and systems. Ericsson provides all MTN technical infrastructures. Three large capacity switches with complete back up guarantee that the network operates smoothly all year round. This same technology is able to support all value-added services that MTN offers to its customers, such as, voice mail, SMS, data, e.t.c. MTN has also installed high technology equipment at all its base stations in the country.
MTN commissioned the first dual band network in Africa. This means that customers have access to better network quality as well as more capacity.
The distribution network of MTN is an important factor to MTN’s rapid growth. The establishment of sales outlets and MTN kiosks in strategically convenient locations has created employment for hundreds of Ugandans. With over 4000 outlets, customers have access to MTN services at the nearest location.
Customer care is a key component of MTN’s operations in Uganda. As a result, MTN Uganda has the biggest customer services center in Uganda offering the largest language preference base and extended hours of operation. We were the first company to introduce a dedicated customer care center in Uganda. MTN has subsequently established customer services points at Shoprite Ben Kiwanuka Street, Lugogo Mall, General Post Office, Crested Towers,Kikuubo branch, Jinja and in Mbarara. MTN offers Customer Care in over 19 local and international languages when customers call the 100 help line for Prepaid and Postpaid queries.
