Christine Mawadri has joined Sanyu FM as the new Programmes Director. Xclusive UG can confirm that Mawadri- a star radio presenter of the early 2000s- started work on Saturday. She replaces Crystal Kavule Newman who has been doubling as presenter and PD. Prior to joining tycoon Sudhir Ruparelia Sanyu FM he has been working with Zuku TV.
Back in the day Mawadri was a breakfast show queen and a mainstay onUganda’s FM radio airwaves from way back in the 1990s while with Capital FM. But she quit the airwaves some good years back, bouncing back, but on managerial level and running Top Radio as general manager, then most recently Dembe FM in the same position. With change of ownership at Dembe FM recently, Mawadri’s general manager position was scrapped. But thanks to her connections, she joined a management position at Zuku TV, whose Ugandan franchise is run by tycoon Patrick Bitature, previously owner of Dembe FM.
