About three months ago, 12 senior journalists had left NTV for NBS and some of these included political reporters Solomon Serwanjja, weekend news anchor Rukh-Shana Namuyimba, Sheila Mugisha and executive producer Chrismel Wasswa as well as cameraman Godfrey Badebye; Charles Ssendagire, and head of graphics Samuel Walugembe.
Their departure was a very big setback to NTV in that they even called upon people in different departments to fill up the gaps left by those who had left.
However, it looks like the Kamwokya based station is not yet done at making NTV weak so that it can be the strongest station in Uganda because the latest we are getting is that more senior reporters including Julius Senkandwa a social and political investigative reporter and Jjingo Francis have also joined NBS TV.
They will also be joined by reporter Ernest Wisdom Kiyonga, Abubaker Zirabamuzale and sports anchor Darren Kyeyune.
They will be joining the station in December and to be specific December 2nd this year in deals that are going to see them double their salaries.
A few weeks back, news anchor Faridah Nakazibwe was blocked by the Serena-based station from joining BBS telefaina in a deal that would have seen her as the most paid presenter on Uganda’s media industry.
