Former NTV weekend edition news anchor and reporter Sheila Nduhukire is all smiles after completing her Masters in Business Administration (MBA) at the Eastern and Southern Africa Management Institute (ESAMI) in Arusha, Tanzania.
Established in 1979 by the governments of Kenya, the United Republic of Tanzania and the Republic of Uganda, ESAMI is an intergovernmental institution designed to provide specialized top-level management training, research and consultancy services to its members.
Nduhukire, whose class also comprised of Electoral Commission Public Relations Officer (PRO) Jotham Taremwa, enrolled for the course in 2016. Her academic progress expands her expertise in administration and management and opens more doors for her already illustrious careers as a media person.
Nduhukire, 28, left NTV Uganda to join their sister station NTV Kenya that is also owned by NMG (Nation Media Group) which was founded in 1959 by Aga Khan IV.
She graduated with a degree in Business Administration from Mbarara University of Science and Technology (MUST) where she was also the Guild President and joined NMG as a journalist trainee.
Nduhukire was trained at the NMG Lab for nine months in print, radio and TV journalism when she finally joined NTV as a journalist. Rising to the top was quick for her, thanks to hard work, as she would soon be the sole anchor of the highly coveted NTV Weekend Edition news.
Born in the western Uganda town of Kazo in Kiruhura District, Nduhukire attended Uganda Martyrs Namugongo and Bweranyangi Girls SS before she went to MUST. Her father Rt. Rev. Stephen Namanya is the North Ankole Diocese Bishop.
