Senior Journalist Solomon Serwanjja Quits NBS TV After Landing On Juicy Job

Solomon Serwanjja has confirmed he will be leaving Naguru Hill-based, NBS TV following six years of service to focus on his new role at African Institute for Investigative Journalism.

Serwanjja who won 2019 BBC World News Komla Dumor Award for his investigative story on the illegal sale of prescription drugs, says he will stop working with NBS TV on July 31st and take over as Executive Director of African Institute for Investigative Journalism.

On 31st July, I will be leaving @nbstv. It has been such an honor to serve for the last 6 years. Thank you @KKariisa and the entire @nextmediaug family for the support. I will now focus on my new role as the Executive Director @AfricanIIJ, the home of investigative journalism, Serwannja wrote on Twitter.

He has been covering investigative stories at the same time reading ‘Live at 9’ news on NBS TV.

Serwanjja started his journalism career at UBC TV, switched to Serena-based NTV and later NBS TV.

Following his stay at BBC, it’s reported that he received massive offers but Next Media Services CEO, Kin Kariisa convinced him to stay at NBS TV with a better offer.

Mean while, next media boss Kin Karisa has appauded Solomon for hardworking and leaving a lasting land mark at Next media.

Thank you, Solo, for the great work that leaves a lasting mark on all of us at @nextmediaug. After seeing your work here, I have no doubt whatsoever that you will do great things as ED at @AfricanIIJ, and we look forward to great partnerships ahead. Farewell. #NextMediaUG .Karisa tweeted

Apart from working for UBC, NBS TV and NTV, Serwanjja also worked as news reporter and anchor for KTN.
