Sports journalist, NTV Uganda/Radio One

FIRST CAR
Toyota Corona.

CURRENT CAR
I drive a Toyota Premio. I love it for its fuel consumption.

DREAM CAR
The latest model of the Land Rover Discovery.

FIRST JOB
I was a freelance sports writer with the Daily Monitor.

CURRENT JOB
I am a sports journalist with the Nation Media Group and Radio one. I’m a panelist and commentator on NTV Uganda’s Omumuli and Morning programmes. I also do the same at Radio One’s Locker Room and Akaboozi Ku Biiri.

Got where i am by
First of all, I chose to do something I loved and had passion for. So the passion coupled with dedication, hard work, patience and a lot of help from colleagues, has gotten me where I am now.

FAV GADGET
I am not so into gadgets, but if TV is a gadget, then my TV, a Samsung LED 43-inch is my favourite gadget.

FAV MOVIE/series
Shawshank Redemption by Morgan Freeman and Tim Robin.

FAV MEAL
Rice, Irish potatoes and goat’s meat.

WORST HABIT
I watch sport till the wee hours of the morning, almost everyday.

INSPIRED BY
I’m inspired by good journalism. The best example is listening to BBC Sports World on Saturday. It’s the most inspiring sports programme I have listened to.

BEST QUOTE
“It always pays a lot to be honest and trustworthy,” from my mum Ms Mariam Menyaha.
