According to the victims, the radio boss Mr. Bagamuhunda on Friday morning told them that they had ceased being the employees of the radio without prior notice.

Bagamuhunda is also reported to have told the Sports Presenter to leave the station on grounds that his programme was not generating income for the station.

“He once told me to go to field and get business which was to me impossible since my contract did not indicate that I was also going to be doing business for the station,” he said.

It is also revealed that Bagamuhunda’s move to fire the entire workers he wanted to remain with the new staff who did not understand his way of employing workers.

“He fired us because he did not want us to tell some of the new staffs what has been taking place including his recruit and fire policy,” one of the workers claimed.

However, they noted that immediately after announcing their departure, he told them to come for their salaries which was not common during the past.

“We appreciate what the media has done for the former workers because had it not been the media to expose his, he would not give us our salaries,” they chorused emphasising the contribution of Chimpreports that has been following and publishing stories about the same.

The incident comes barely a month after the radio boss fired workers after they demanded for their salary arrears.

Some of the affected workers were; Allan Twongyeirwe, the News Editor, Medard Amutuheire, Eunice Namanya, a News anchor reader, Ngasigwe Charlotte, Ivan Niwagaba and Dian Apaire, all presenters.

Allan Twongyeirwe accused Bagamuhunda of playing tricks to scare the workers from asking for their salary arrears.

Eunice Namaya faulted the director of behaving like a dictator and going ahead to harass workers for demanding their pay.

The embattled Bagamuhunda was last month also summoned by the District Internal Security Officer, Mr. Nabimanya Robert, together with the District Police Commander, Bosco Arop, to explain why he refused to pay a section of radio workers who quit the station.

The alleged workers demanded their salaries worth Shs 1m which their boss had deliberately refused to pay.

An inside source told us that Bagamuhunda also survived coolers after he failed to explain why ever since he started the radio, he had not been giving appointment letters and why he had not been contributing to National Social Security Fund.

“How can you employ some one without giving him an appointment letter and above all you don’t contribute to NSSF? How will the government benefit from these people’s services?” charged Nabimanya.

He, however, later paid their salaries through the office of the district labour officer under police directions.
