    I am a Ugandan, a shareholder with Safaricom. I bought 7500 share during the IPO. But for many many years now, I have not got my dividend! Last year, I raised this issue and I was advised to change the mode of payment. I filled an indemnity & opt-in forms, providing all the required information but still, nothing has changed; I haven't got any payment yet! What could be the challenge?
