NTV UGANDA staff were stopped from participating in the Friday Tubonge Naawe dinner where musicians and other entertainers hosted President Yoweri Museveni, it has emerged.
Xclusive UG understands that some of NTV entertainment presenters like MC Kats, DouglasLwanga, and Miles Rwamiti among others were offered money to emcee at the dinner that featured Uganda’s top musicians, fashion designers, and comedians.
However NTV management issued a statement barring all presenters from being part of the project. According to our sources, the despairing presenters were informed that it was ‘against company policy.’
“NTV believes that its presenters being part of the dinner would look partisan in the public eye. The presenters were barred,” a source told us.
Each emcee earned shs1 million for the two hour ceremony.
