Andrew Mwenda Quits Capital Radio

Uganda’s Veteran Journalist Andrew Mwenda

Veteran journalist and entrepreneur Andrew Mwenda it appears has parted ways with Capital FM, a popular radio station in Uganda’s capital, Kampala.

Mwenda whose voice has been absent in the recent days, had a morning program tilted “the Andrew Mwenda minute” ten minutes to 8am every morning in which he discussed top headlines of the day.

The legendary scribe and vicious critic of foreign aid who calls himself a quasi-intellectual businessman (whatever that means) has not indicated what his next move is though he has hinted at something better to come.

The independent magazine CEO revealed this development on social networking site face book stating “Good friends how are you. The gods of Toro extend their greetings to you. I would like to formally inform you that The Andrew Mwenda Minute radio show on Capital F.M ended”

Mwenda’s exit follows that of another breakfast show presenter Allan Kasujja who last month scooped a lucrative job with BBC radio where he will be working on the station’s ‘News-day’ program.

His fans have been unanimous in saying his incisive analysis will be missed.
