”Praying you’re all happy and healthy and walking the path of greatness. I start the week with good news. After 20 years in television, I have chosen to challenge myself again.

In 2015, I was given an opportunity by @mauricemugi to join the newsroom @ntvuganda as an anchor and that challenge was accepted with fear and grace. Thank you @aggie.itazya  who at the time insisted I will do great and didn’t give time to my anxiety.

Thank you for the training and the platform that has rebranded me and helped my career adjust to a new vision I have since set for myself. Thank you to the viewer. YOU have been the reason for a lot of my success and I will never take you for granted.

April 2021 was my last month as anchor and host @ntvuganda and the start of great changes in both my career (media personality, content creator and business partner) and life as a wife and mother.

You will always be part of my life and I don’t intend to hide the next move or actions of my life.

For now, mine is gratitude for where I’ve been and who I’ve become and I hope young people will now occupy these spaces we are leaving and that you’ll do great things.”
