In order to realign the company’s digital realignment process, Next Media Services CEO Kin Kariisa discharged 30 employees of their tasks on Wednesday. “We simply cannot continue to approach our work the same as we currently do, especially with our winning DNA.” Kariisa said in a message.
The 30 employees let go from their jobs at NBS TV, Sanyuka TV, and Next Radio were all broadcasters. We have been attempting in vain to get the whole list ever since the firing. But we were able to get some of the identities that were judged unsuitable for leading Next media.
Numerous other employees have also been let off, including Noah Kyeyune, Edris Kiggundu, Turyagumanawe, John Kibalizi, Fatia Nassali, Aminah Nabukenya, Michael Kigozi, Jordan Mubangizi, Esther Namutamba, and Karitas Karisimbi.
Some of the surviving employees received promotions after 30 workers were fired. The goal of Kin Kariisa, who took over NBS Television in 2008 from its creator Nathan Igeme Nabeeta, was to make Next Media Services the largest media company in Uganda. His desire for success drove him to steal staff from competing stations, which led to a number of redundancies at Next Media Park at exorbitant pay. He had to use the axe to cut down on spending and redundancies.
It should be remembered that in September, Kin Kariisa raided a number of outlets, including DJ Muteesa Pro from Buddu FM, Precious Remmie from Spark TV, and Ann Taylor from Bukedde TV. Kin Kariisa and DJ Ssuna Ben had discussions, but Bukedde dissuaded him by raising his wages.
