Sir Gordon Wavamunno, Uganda’s most well-known and successful businessman, and the Chairman of WBS television in Uganda, says VOA, “has quality and I go with quality.”

Wavamunno, who was a recent guest on Straight Talk Africa with Shaka Ssali, has a decade-long relationship with the Voice of America.  His station, which can be seen all over Uganda, airs Straight Talk Africa Thursday mornings at 11AM.

“I look at who is doing good work and who can be a good partner... and the VOA has been doing extremely well,” according to Wavamunno, who went on to say, “Voice of America’s Straight Talk is the only balanced news source that brings out the issues.”

Sir Wavamunno also talked with Shaka Ssali about recently being knighted by Queen Elizabeth, and his prominence in the auto, textile, radio, and agriculture industries.

Wavamunno, whose television station began broadcasting in 1999, said he takes pleasure in providing for the needs of Ugandans who want to know what is happening around the world. “My titles are not what make me comfortable; it is what I am that makes me comfortable.”

WBS TV (Wavah Broadcasting services) is a privately owned, free-to-air Station.
