One of the popular FM radio stations in Uganda Super fm owned by Member of Parliament and city pastor Peter Ssematimba is in serious trouble as its workers continue the exodus, leaving the station in the hands of amateurs.
We have learnt that 80 percent of the employees have so far absconded their duties due to no pay and unending excuses from the radio’s CEO Peter Ssematimba.
The most shocking exit is one of his best friend and one of Uganda’s oldest media personalities, Rasta Rob, who resigned on air allegedly over pay issues.
Rasta Rob, whose original name is Robert Ogwal, shocked his listeners after he announced his resignation and then went off air.
Recently, the media house lost one of the countries sports crew which resigned over payments. The crew was replaced with “Kareoke like” interns who currently mimic a one Stuart Mutebi to keep the unaware audience glued.
It is said that Sematimba recently advised all his field reporters to find pay in the field using their identity cards suggesting that reporters are usually tipped by their sources which is unethical of journalists.
