NBS Television’s star political journalist, Joseph Sabiti over the weekend bade farewell to his colleagues at Next Media Services shortly after hosting his last “Big Talk” edition on NXT Radio.
The charismatic reporter, whose career highlight will surely be his coverage of the alleged stone-shooting of President Museveni’s convoy by Bobi Wine and “People Power” loyalists, sent a short and precise good-bye message to all Next Media Services staff through their WhatsApp platform.
“Good afternoon, I will be taking a break from active Journalism for a while,” read Sabiti’s WhatsApp message to fellow staff. “Thank you for the amazing four years at Media Plaza, it has been every inch worth it and Next Media will always remain home,” he added. Sabiti will now assume the position of Communications Officer at Action Aid Uganda.
Before NBS TV, Sabiti worked with the now-defunct WBS TV. Many notable figures and colleagues have since come out on Twitter to wish Sabiti the best for the future;
Hon. Frank Tumwebaze: Congratulations @sabitijoseph on your new Job. Advancement in career is a dream a very progressive mind should work and aspire for. All the best!
Mujuni Raymond: It was a great honour to work with you. The stories we broke, speaking truth to power, informing audiences and dignifying the profession. Thank you for countless hours of advice and sacrifice. Write us a book.

It awaits to be seen how Next Media Services will cover the gap left behind by clearly one of their best creations yet.
