Rachael Tumwine juggles TV work, farming and business

Rachael Tumwine is a television host at BTM TV, as well as an online business proprietor. She told Nicolas Akasula how she manages her schedule.

Monday:
My first task of the day is to meet with my producer to review the weekend show. I present a weekly women’s programme called ‘Today’s woman’.
We brainstorm areas of improvement, generate new ideas for the show and prepare all necessary content for the next shooting.

Tuesday:
This is the day I shoot my programme. I spend time going through the script before the shoot. I go for the last meeting with my producer for preparation of the next show before I head home in the evening.

Wednesday:
This is when I visit the farm. I spend the entire day with people at the farm in Masindi. I do stocktaking, review books of accounts and restock the farm.

Thursday:
I operate an online clothes business and this is when I take orders and do deliveries to clients around town. It’s quite tedious and sometimes, it eats up the entire day.

Friday:
I am also a minister at church. I have to be at church to supervise and pray with the team. I also do counselling sessions for the congregants.

Saturday:
I prepare special dishes for family and also pay attention to everything at home, including general cleaning.
I also engage with clients online and book appointments with guests for the show.

Sunday:
Sunday morning would supposedly be church, but because of Covid-19, I plan to prepare special meals for family.
I also spend some time resting. Later in the evening, I take nature walks or go for jogging.
