Next Media Uganda is seeking fresh talent to replace journalists Solomon Sserwanja and Raymond Mujuni who recently quit NBS for greener pastures.
Mujuni, one of the best investigative journalists in the country, left NBS early this month while Sserwanja is said to have already tendered in his resignation letter to the media company after landing a job with BBC in Kenya.
Mujuni is back at NTV-Uganda where he cut his teeth as a journalist.
According to an internal memo sent out to staff early this week, Next Media is also seeking to recruit heads of sale for Sanyuka TV and Salam TV.
“If you feel you can do it, pull up to the curb. Let’s talk,” the statement to announce promotions, exits and new recruits, reads in part.

NBS has in the past lost Joseph Sabiiti who was a reporter, columnist, and producer of the TV’s leading political show, The Frontline. Sabiiti resigned from NBS about four months ago and joined Action AID as a communications officer.
Sheila Tumusiime Mugisha also quit the media company after landing an interview with President Museveni. This act didn’t sit well with her bosses hence causing her to quit.
