The Government has blocked sim cards of those that received ‘Nabbanja’s’ money twice.
The Minister of Information, Communications Technology and National Guidance Dr. Chris Baryomunsi confirmed that there were mistakes made while sending money to the vulnerable, some of whom received the cash relief twice.
He said that the mistakes were made by Telecom companies while sending money and throve to block the s cards is to ensure that the government recovers the extra cash.
He added that the blocked cards will only be unblocked if the.owners pay the extra cash they received.
“We believe there was a mistake as they were sending money, so we want to recover the extra after that, the affected simcards will be unblocked. This is not a problem, they blocked their numbers because the senders (telecom companies) made mistakes and we cannot blame them. So what they are doing is to see that they recover some money before some people use it all.” Mr. Chris said while addressing the media recently.
