In June 2018, the Ugandan Government through its core finance ministry announced what was coming next in the 2018/19 financial year. On 1st July at exactly 00:00, Whatsapp groups were muted, Facebook timelines zeroed up with no updates as Twitter was flogged with a #Socialmediatax hashtag.
Well, the time for a new tax had come as prophesized. Since then, internet users have triggered the internet for available VPN & OTT tax alternatives. However, we discovered a new and long lasting solution to the social media tax barriers proudly designed & developed in Uganda.
TM Whatsapp is a Whatsapp mod which is in no way different from GB WhatsApp and all other popular mods. While TM stands for Titus Mukisa who doubles as the developer for this particular version. You won’t have to battle with paying social media tax anymore with this Whatsapp version.
History of TMWhatsapp: Who owns it, and how it is built
TM Whatsapp as we denoted earlier is an individual project by one of Uganda’s IT geeks Titus Mukisa who came up with his own idea long before the full list of OTT services was released. Battling through the competition with a GB Whatsapp variant in his mind, TM Whatsapp is the only version that currently gives you free access without downloading any VPN.
To the history of this mighty Whatsapp version. It started as a Softek Ware systems app that was used by IT geeks combined in one Whatsapp group to share ideas and tricks in the digital world. However, as we speak the App has received immerse downloads after the emergence of OTT tax and its sibling Mobile money tax.
