BREAKING: Sheila Nduhukire Quits NTV Uganda

Uganda’s prominent investigative journalist, Sheila Nduhukire, 28, has left NTV Uganda.

The youthful news anchor is joining the Nairobi-based NTV Kenya.

“Nduhukire reported at her work station today Monday,” said a close friend of Nduhukire.

Officials at NTV Kenya also confirmed the development to ChimpReports.

NTV Kenya is a sister television station owned by NMG (Nation Media Group) which was founded in 1959 by Aga Khan IV.

The news will disturb NTV Uganda fans who enjoyed Nduhukire’s extraordinary works.

From Mbarara University of Science and Technology (MUST) where she was the Guild President, Nduhukire joined NMG as a journalist trainee.

At the Nation Media Lab, Nduhukire was trained for nine months in print, radio and TV journalism.

She would later join NTV Uganda as a journalist.

“My first days were tricky. I had doubts on whether I could really deliver. But I was quick to accept what I did not know, and to be open to the idea of learning,” she told Monitor in an interview.

Nduhukire quickly rose to the top- anchoring news and hosting brief talkshows.

She recently broke news about refugee girls as young as 17 being forced into prostitution in Uganda.

Her passion, fearlessness and vigour have earned her praise in the country.

Nduhukire was born in Kazo, Kiruhura District to Bishop of North Ankole Diocese Stephen Namanya, and Lydia Namanya, a teacher.

She attended Uganda Martyrs Namugongo for O’ Level and later Bweranyangi Girls School for A’Level.
