SACKED? Amina Nabukenya, Tyaba Abubakar, Kyeyune Noah, Nassali Fatia, Aminah Nabukenya and Zahra Namuli fired staff from Next Media service

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that Amina Nabukenya, Tyaba Abubakar, Kyeyune Noah, Nassali Fatia, Aminah Nabukenya and Zahra Namuli fired from Next Media service. 


At least 30 Next Media staff have been relieved of their duties barely two weeks after Next Media Group Chief Executive Officer (GCEO) Kin Kariisa announced a process to realign the company’s digital realignment process.

“We simply cannot continue to approach our work the same as we currently do, especially with our winning DNA”, Kariisa told the staff following the brainstorming sessions that have since informed the realignment.

Due to this positioning the company has been subjected to both horizontal and vertical movements across all departments.

In his message to the staff, Kariisa emphasized the need to read from a new chapter saying there was a need to realign the teams.

There is need to prepare to execute a strategy that will keep our brands attractive and, very importantly, relevant in our very competitive environment,’ Kariisa said.

The changes in digital strategy have affected several senior editors and reporters at the company who include Edris Kiggundu, Noah Kyeyune, reporters Turyagumanawe, John Kibalizi and Fatia Nassali.

According to a release, the company says, after lengthy consideration the company had to have some of its staff go. The letter quotes the group CEO, explaining how it had been a very difficult decision to take particularly many of the workers are long serving.

Next Media is not an isolated case of serious media housing taking a new direction and sacking staff.

The BBC recently laid off workers in their hundreds last month as it seeks to move to digital first newsroom.

In a move relatable to Next Media, BBC Service outlined plans to accelerate its digital offering and increase impact with audiences around the globe.

Only last week Kariisa too was emphatic that Next media needed to stay relevant to its audience through executing a new strategy that will keep the company’s brands attractive and competitive in the business environment.

Zahara Namuli announced her departure through her Twitter account where she revealed that she has been a part of the media house for close to a decade.

In a short tweet, she thanked all those who have supported her in becoming one of the most vibrant health reporters in the country and added that she does not take the support accorded to her for granted.
