BUSHENYI- Journalists in Greater Bushenyi have jointly formed an Association aimed at creating unity and professionalizing their work.
The Association has been named Greater Bushenyi Media Association (MAG).
The association will bring together journalists from all the 5 districts making up Greater Bushenyi as agreed upon in their meeting at Tuzza Hotel in Bushenyi town, on Saturday July 4th 2020.
Greater Bushenyi district is made up of Bushenyi, Sheema, Rubirizi, Buhweju and Mitooma.
Journalists have for several years in Bushenyi district accused the long existing association “BUJOMA” for failure to unite them and particularly poor leadership characterized with hatred, pride and selfishness.
This is one of the reasons that forced them to form a new and a fresh association with hopes and bringing back humanity amongst journalists.
During the course of the meeting, Prosper Twebaze was elected the new chairperson of the Association.
Twebaze Prosper is born In Ruhumuro, Igara East Bushenyi district.
He is currently the Programs Director of BFM Radio and hosts the re-known political show called “Ekiteramo”.
He joined BFM in February 2018 from Freedom Radio Kabale.
Most journalists who talked to our reporter described him as a man who values professional ethics and thanked him for his previous efforts to unite them amidst various challenges.
Through his whatsapp platform, Twebaze prosper recently managed to solicit money and bought maize flour and beans for journalists in Bushenyi who were starving due to lockdown.
