Kaggwa Njala suspended from NBS over Mpuuga money posts

25 Jun 2024

KAMPALA. Simon Njala Kaggwa, a senior talk show host at NBS TV, has been suspended for 14 days for hosting Mathias Mpuuga’s thanksgiving event in Masaka on June 21.

According to reliable sources at Naguru, Kaggwa violated the media organization’s ethical guidelines by being partisan.

The news manager, Dalton Kaweesa, informed the editorial staff of Kaggwa’s suspension during a meeting today, following a decision made in a senior management meeting chaired by Kin Kariisa.

While Kaggwa attempted to deflect from his suspension by mentioning charity work on social media, the reality is that he is facing a 14-day suspension.

Management believes that Kaggwa’s social media activity leading up to Mpuuga’s event crossed boundaries for someone in his position.

A statement from management regarding Kaggwa’s situation is expected to be released soon.

Kaggwa, who has been with NBS since 2011 and is known for hosting the Morning Breeze talk show, is a Catholic and openly aligns with the opposition, particularly the Democratic Party. Notably, this is the second high-profile suspension by Next Media this year, following Zahara Toto’s departure in March.
