Two-year-old ChimpReports, which boasts an army of 460,000 consistent readers, is facing a stiff challenge from NTV Uganda, Daily Monitor, Radio City and SMS Media in this same category.

“This is a spectacular accomplishment which proves that people love our services,” said Muhame, adding, “Our star is shinning bright. Every great dream begins with a dreamer. We have within us the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.”

Muhame further noted that the site is currently ranked among the top websites accessed in Uganda on Alexa.

“Our target is not to be ranked number one by a foreign firm. Our target is to give our readers the best. Our readers are the best judge.”
