Bukedde TV has lost its glory. The station has been losing staff since the year started.
The latest is that Sanyu Robinah Mweruka is on her way to Salt TV.
On Monday, there was a closed door meeting between Mweruka and her supervisor, Richard Kayiira. In the meeting, it is said that she tabled her new conditions and why she is leaving.
Sources at the industrial based station revealed to us that Mweruka was offered a juicy deal at Salt TV and she couldn’t turn in down.
At Bukedde TV, she is still under a freelance contract though she is not allowed to work for any other media house.
A reliable source revealed to us the reasons as to why workers are leaving, here are some of them.
We have been informed that the current financial structure at Bukedde TV is slowly killing the station. It is making its long serving staffs look for greener pastures.
Currently, Bukedde TV has only few people who are under staff contract. This means that few members are permanently earning salary.
The rest of Bukedde TV newsroom comprises of freelancers who earn per story filed in. This has frustrated many workers to the extent that some have been forced to quit.
It is also reported that the station is financially struggling and can’t sustain a big budget to facilitate its reporters in the field.
As we know, reporting for Bukedde is not for faint hearted.
We shall only keep praying for the once loved TV station.
