Aggie Asiimwe Konde will be paid a whopping shs30 million at her new workplace NTV Uganda as her monthly gross salary. Konde- formerly working as the Marketing and Sales Manager of Crown Beverages- started work at NTV Uganda this month as the Managing Director.
We have learnt that Konde, who is believed to have earned big from promotions such as Moto Moto, Motozella among others, was mainly attracted by the hefty salary. Though she has been earning just over shs14 million net at Pepsi (Crown Beverages), she has earned really big in side deals on the unending promotions at Crown. But the hefty monthly pay cheque and the powers at NTV were too juicy to turn down. Joe Munene, who Konde has replaced, has been at shs25 million a month salary.
NTV Uganda,an entity of the Nation Media Group, earlier this month announced Konde as the replacement for Joe Munene, who has been at the helm of the television station for four years since 2009, making it the most viewed and broadcast enterprise in the country. Ms Konde has promised to scale the station to higher levels. “I am happy to join the leading TV brand in the country that has come through the years.
I am going to continue positioning ourselves at the top by offering exciting programmes to our viewers. They should not turn off their dials,” she was quoted. She has been the brand and marketing manager at Crown Beverages Limited, the manufacturers of Pepsi, Mirinda, 7 Up and Mountain Dew. She has vast experience in the media industry although this will be her first assignment in broadcast.
Menawhile Munene has joined Standard Media that owns Kenya Television Network and Maisha Radio in Kenya.
