Without women, the media space would be like an expensive party without music. In the Ugandan media space, many women have come and gone.
However, others have defied time as they only get better with time in the spotlight.
Nothing spells out consistency, growth, and steady progress like NTV-based news lead, Faridah Nakazibwe.
After leaving the now defunct WBS TV for the Serena-based television group, Nakazibwe has grown steadily through ranks as one of the most formidable Luganda news anchors, with her morning talk show, Mwasuze Mutya, boasting of some of the highest broadcast ratings in the land.
With years under her belt in the media industry, her reputation has only gotten her from strength to strength, being a highly sought figure for commercial endorsements for a number of products.
Being one of the most followed media figures in the country, it is only just to say that Nakazibwe’s pedigree only gets better with age, like a fine strong wine.
