New kid. Born and raised in Fort Portal, Aggie Uwase launched her journalism career during her Senior Six vacation before moving to Kampala to pursue her dream of becoming a radio presenter. Aggie is the new voice KFM’s D’hook, a daily mid-morning show that airs from Monday to Friday between 10am and 3pm. She had a chat with David Mujuni about career, life and future plans.
Who is Aggie?
My name is Aggie Uwase, born and raised in Fort Portal. I went to Maryhill High School in Mbarara, did my university education at Makerere University where I graduated in 2020 before lockdown. I studied Industrial and Organisational Psychology.
Uwase; where do we place that name?
Well, I get that question a lot. My late father was Rwandan and my mother is a Munyankole. So I have no Kitooro [Batooro] blood whatsoever but yes, somehow my parents ended up in Fort Portal.
How did you end up in journalism since you studied a different course?
