They tried to snatch Frank Walusimbi but failed, their efforts to snatch camera man and a few reporters from NTV also met a dead end but finally, the long wait is over as BBS Telefaina has finally got one of the best Luganda news anchors in Uganda.
Reliable information we came across is that, Farida Nakazibwe has finally accepted to join Buganda Broadcasting Service (BBS) on a long term contract that will see her head the news department as well as anchoring news on some occasions.
The former ‘Akawungezi’ and ‘Mwassuze mutya’ presenter on NTV handed in her resignation about two months back although it was just accepted a few days ago after it emerged that the station could not meet what she was asking for to remain at the Serena based station.
Farida is supposed to have started on her new job but due to her ongoing marriage plans, was given an extension until next week.
It is said that, besides the hefty salary she was promised, the other reason that impelled her to join the Buganda station is that her yet to become husband forced her to resign because he couldn’t cope up with the fact that Farida’s ex-fiance and father of her two children also works at NTV.
Farida is now replaced by Hatima Nalugwa who is sitting in until the station finds a permanent person for the two roles.
