With all the stories that have been reported about her, Faridah Nakazibwe surprised the nation when she appeared on NTV anchoring the ‘Akawungezi’ news bulletins on Monday evening. We were also shocked thinking it was just a one off especially after all reports linking her to a rival station, but when she appeared on the Serena-based station the following day (Tuesday), we couldn’t hold it back as we speed-dialled some of our sources at NTV to give us the heads up.
We were told that Nakazibwe’s return on the screens came after the station negotiated with her to stay on and resume her role as a news anchor and presenter of Mwassuze Mutya programme for better pay which she agreed.
She had earlier indicated that she was leaving NTV for BBS where she was going to be a news producer and manager as well as presenting a few bulletins on some days.
Nakazibwe was also in the news last week after she got married in Dubai to Dr Ssali Omar after snubbing NRM’s Hajji Kigongo Moses. Our ears are on the ground in case of more details on this matter and we will keep you posted as they come.
