Just days after the announcement by Nation Television’s longtime news anchor, Rachael Arinaitwe Mwine, that she had put a stop on her 7 year service at the Serena based station, another celebrated news reporter, Culton Scovia Nakamya has also thrown in the towel and joined Buganda Kingdom owned BBS television.
Nakamya has for four years been NTV’s Luweero Triangle correspondent and has covered a lot of stories including the outbreak of the highly contagious foot and mouth disease in the region a couple of years back.
According to a source at BBS TV, she starts working next month.
When contacted by SoftPower News, Nakamya neither confirmed nor refuted the information but instead preferred to comment at a later date.
Given her four year experience in the area coupled with her contacts in Nakaseke, Nakasongola, Kiboga, Masindi and Luweero, NTV is likely to struggle replacing her.
Arinaitwe and Nakamya are not the only journalists who have quit the station in the recent past. Maurice Mugisha, the former head of News at NTV called it quits a couple of weeks ago and joined state-run Uganda Broadcasting Corporation (UBC) where he will be working as a deputy managing director.
