MTN Uganda on Wednesday, April 13, rewarded outstanding women in sports following a month-long activation on its digital platforms.

The awards dubbed MTN Outstanding Women in Sport took place at the Sheraton Kampala Hotel.

Suncity United, a netball team, walked away with a community service award and a sponsorship package worth sh30m in recognition of its efforts towards empowering young girls through sports.
