Uganda: South Africans to Train Vision TV, Radio Teams


A team of six broadcasters is in Kampala to train New Vision journalists on how best to integrate radio and television into Uganda's leading print setup and website to create a world-class media giant. As part of the Vision Group expansion from print to broadcasting, the company has enlisted the help of Tommy Makhode, Alf Mosenya, Conrad Burke, Paul Molefe, Raj Sanker and Angie Kapelianis from the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC).

Company CEO Robert Kabushenga pointed out that in partnering with SABC, The New Vision was not only gaining knowledge from one of the biggest broadcasters on the continent, but also ensuring front-seat TV and radio coverage of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in November.
