Speaking at the anniversary celebrations on Thursday, MultiChoice Uganda’s General Manager Charles Hamya stated, “This is a fantastic achievement and the culmination of twenty years of hard work, innovation and investment. Over the last 20 years MultiChoice has become the number one video entertainment provider in the country and the first to build a permanent home, combining a staff work place and world class customer care environment for our subscribers.”

“Our new Headquarter is a tangible demonstration of our long term commitment to the Ugandan market which began with our launch of Uganda’s first pay television service at a time when most experts claimed that the Ugandan television market was too small and not yet ready to handle quality pay television services,” he added.

According to Hamya, the 20 successful years are as a result of the subscribers’ loyalty and support.

The main service hall which is manned by more than ten service agents, is a lot more spacious and equipped with state of the art technology including self-help computerized touch points that will ensure long queues are a thing of the past.

In addition, it has a dedicated demo lounge area that allows one on one interaction with service agents.


“This ensures that by the time a subscriber decides to purchase one of our products, he or she is fully conversant with how the new technology works from day one,” Charles stated.

Giving a speech during the celebration, the Regional Director MultiChoice, East Africa, Stephen Isaboke said opening this office marks the completion of the first phase of a strategic initiative started by the group that will see them open similar office facilities in each of the regional capitals.

“Our objective is to take our service delivery to the next level, consolidate our core services under one roof in each territory and make use of communications technologies to provide an increasingly personalized interface with our clients,” Isaboke said.

“This development will not only allow us to improve our operational efficiencies, but also allow us to free up resources and focus our energies towards improving quality and extending the reach of our Digital Terrestrial Network,” he added.

The Prime Minister congratulated MultiChoice for their longevity and commitment to the Ugandan Market.

“Not many companies in Uganda celebrate this type of longevity because they often fail to see the big picture and are overtaken by events. MultiChoice is evidently not just an investor, but an innovator, and the perfect example of how International investors should partner with Ugandan entrepreneurs to produce a world class product, which we can genuinely call our own,” the premier said.
Next year on April 13, nurse Linda Kahooza Aronda and her husband would be marking their 20th anniversary in holy matrimony.

But his very quietly sick heart would not wait for few more months for this priceless moment. General Aronda Nyakairima death remains a mystery to his wife and family, this site she says.

She also has trouble taking in the doctors’ report because she had never seen him sick in the near 20 years they have been together.

“My children are witnesses; we had never seen him fail to get out bed to go and work. He was so full of life” Linda told mourners yesterday as the body of her departed husband laid at Kololo Independence grounds for national Prayers.

But that was before President Museveni took to the podium to clear the air, visit this that General Aronda had actually suffered this heart problem for some time and that two days before his demise, some serious signs showed.

From what he collected from the people that travelled with the deceased Internal Affairs Minister to South Korea, Museveni revealed that the General complained of dizziness and stomachache, but could not check in a hospital because he had no health insurance.

Mrs Aronda, now left with two teenage kids wondered at the ceremony, how she was going to live in the world without her husband.

“I am saddened that he left us so early because we were supposed to grow old together. He was such a wonderful husband and most of all a loving father. Whenever he came home – most times at midnight – he always found me awake. I always waited for him.”

Linda said she met her husband, when she was a young girl and never anticipated they would wind up together.

“I had gone to visit my uncle and there I went with a group of people to see a soldier that had just emerged from the bush. That’s that’s how I met him,” she recalled.

“All the time I have been with him, he never talked to me harshly. He protected us against many things. He was an incredibly loving father to his children.

“We always looked forward to spending variable time with him. In the beginning it was very difficult because he’d spend a lot of time without being with us, but with time we got to understand that he had made a choice to share us with the government. Sometimes you’d wonder how passionately he talked about Uganda; it was as if he was taking about a person”

She however said she found solace in the great achievements that her husband left behind.

“When I look back at whatever he has achieved in his short life, I feel glad that though he hasn’t achieved all, a lot is being attributed to him. He loved his country and he worked for it, every single day of his career.”

In his condolence, message, the Chief of Defense Forces Gen Adward Katumba Wamala reassured the family that even when Gen Aronda did not leave behind a lot of wealth, he left them with a clean name, which he said would surely open doors for them.

Aronda’s body will today be taken to his ancestral home in Rukungiri where it will be laid to rest tomorrow.
