The Kyabazinga of Busoga William Gabula Nadiope IV has on Saturday awarded Baba TV and Baba FM, both media outlets under Baba Media Group, for their distinguished service in empowering and transforming women and youth in the Busoga Kingdom.

According to Gabula Royal Foundation, the distinguished service award has been awarded to the two stations “in recognition of your diligent and dedicated service to Busoga region towards Youth/Women Empowerment through Skilling (2018-2022)”.

The two stations have excelled in influencing sustainable development through providing informative, educative, entertaining, and cultural programming that drives economic, social, and political development in Eastern Uganda and the country at large.

Programs that empower women, youth, and other groups of people in the kingdom on how to better their lives through agriculture, and other sectors are given a priority at the two stations.

After receiving the award, Baba Media Group CEO, Moses Grace Balyeku thanked Kyabazinga for recognizing the group’s efforts in making Busoga and Uganda better. He said the award has motivated them to work harder.

“I thank our Kyabazinga for recognizing us and the work we do. We are so delighted and hope to use this ward to double our efforts towards the development of the people of Busoga and the Kingdom,” Balyeku said.

“It is good our actions in the few years of existence are speaking louder on addressing challenges such as the high levels of illiteracy, unemployment, poverty, disease among others in the region,” he added.

The stations have since inception extensively covered developments in the Busoga Kingdom, relaying live events organized by the kingdom, conducted interviews with Kingdom officials including the Premier, Owek. Joseph Muvawala Nsekere as well as rallying masses towards engaging in kingdom activities.

This is not the first time Baba Media is recognized. In December last year, the Kabaka of Buganda, Ronald Edward Frederick Kimera Muwenda Mutebi II, awarded Baba Television for its distinguished services in the field of information dissemination and maintaining good relations with the Kingdom.

A certificate of appreciation that was given to Baba Television and signed by Owek. Peter Mayiga, the Kingdom’s Kattikiro indicated, “This station has been awarded this certificate in appreciation of the cooperation, good relationship and support it has offered to the Buganda Kingdom in terms of publicizing activities and programs of the kingdom”.

Baba FM is based in Jinja, Eastern Uganda and broadcasts on 87.7 FM, whereas Baba TV which is the official Busoga Kingdom TV, has studios in Jinja City and Kampala. The TV is live on all digital platforms including DSTV CH374, Azam TV CH365, ZUKU CH522, GOTV CH 393, Star sat CH 505 and StarTimes CH235.
