MultiChoice Uganda, the home of great Pay TV entertainment, has equipped Uganda’s largest University with DStv cable connections as part of its effort to extend quality edutainment across the country.
The country’s largest Pay TV service provider has provided one of Makerere University’s accommodation facilities with a DStv cable connection. This is to allow international students to access current news and educational programs from around the world.
Joan Semanda Kizza, MultiChoice Uganda’s PR and Communications Manager, said to the press at the handover, “Multichoice Uganda is glad to support the country’s biggest learning institution with cable network that we strongly believe is necessary for the fellows given the various informative and educational channels we provide.”
“A lot is happening across different continents in terms of world news, politics, sports, entertainment amongst others, which we strongly believe that the fellows need to stay afloat with. With this provision, it is our plea that the students make good use of it to help them with their studies or course work in the long run,” she explained.

“With cable connections to nine apartments, the entire flat will be covered with access to DStv cable network with a variety of channels that will not only inform and educate the university students but also entertain them as they wind down from hectic lectures.” Joan remarked.
In Addition, Makerere University’s Dean of Students, Ms. Kabumbuli Winifred, stated, “We are delighted to partner with MultiChoice and Rotary Peace Uganda to welcome our 2nd cohort of fellows who originate from across 11 countries. We believe this will enhance the fellow’s curriculum in both informing and educating them.”
However, the handover was made to the Dean of Students and Dr. Hellen Nkabala, Director of the Peace Center, who expressed their gratitude to MultiChoice Uganda for their generosity. Fellows of the Rotary Peace Fellowship will not only have quality accommodation but also access to quality entertainment. Thanks to the installations made at Makerere University’s Mugyenyi flats.
