Kahumuza is so thankful to her generous friends who helped her get a job at NTV thus her success. “A friend informed me of the opportunity at NTV and I quickly put together my CV and delivered it. Fortunately I had most of the attributes they were looking for”.
Ms Kahumuza says she had always been fascinated by how people would come together to listen to the news. Every activity would come to a standstill when the news came on in the evening.
As a result, she realized how important current affairs were to the lives of people and she wanted to be that person that shared the news and that’s how she ended up in Journalism.

Both opportunities have positioned be better to tackle human interest stories, which often have a lot to do with the environment. Here in Uganda we feel the impact of climate change daily. Floods, unpredictable weather or droughts are becoming the norms and I think as a journalist it’s my duty to report about that. And that’s why I am keen to be a part of the Eco Africa Team, because the show offers solutions to so many problems.”
Kahumuza says she wants to mentor talent in the Journalism and Communication industry. She advises young people to give everything they do their very best because everything falls in place once you don’t stop at the bare minimum and aim higher.
