The Ministers of ICT and National Guidance on Wednesday, February 05, 2020, paid a maiden visit to Uganda Broadcasting Corporation (UBC) premises on Nile Avenue, Kampala.
ICT minister Judith Nabakooba and junior minister, Peter Ogwang toured the UBC premises in company of the Corporation’s senior management led by the Managing Director, Winston Agaba. The ministers toured the UBC premises including the new UBC studio and were hosted live on Star TV, a subsidiary of UBC.
They later met the top management in the MD’s board room where the ministers commended the management for their efforts in refurbishing the national broadcaster.
“I am impressed with the infrastructure at UBC and so it means we are on the right track to make UBC a national broadcaster. It is our prayer to make UBC the most viewed station and from what I have seen, we shall make it,” Ogwang said in the meeting that was also attended by Deputy MD Maurice Mugisha, Head of Content Cedric Babu among other top managers.
Hon. Minister, Nabakooba told UBC management that whereas they are committed to walk with them towards revamping UBC, the top managers should be accountable at any moment when they are called to do so.
“Thank you for what you have done so far but a lot still needs to be done. Government may not have given you the money at once but at least quarterly releases have been made for the revamp. Let us work as a team and build a formidable force to propel government agenda”, she said.
