Former NTV Life Stories host Justine Nameere has finally revealed the real reason why she quit the station in 2013, putting an end to one of the most popular shows then, before Bebe Cool’s wife Zuena Kirema took up the hosting duties for the same show. Forget the “to get time to concentrate on my studies” baloney, Nameere was actually hounded out of a job she really loved.
“Just to set the record straight, I resigned from NTV in 2013 because of a bully manager, Harriet Namayanja who made it impossible for me to work there! I tried to get the management to handle her actions in vain but God being interesting, the same management fired her one year later for incompetence and harassment of workers,” Nameere said.
“She went on to tarnish Aggie Konde (NTV boss) and the management of NTV in Red Pepper and online tabloids and she was arrested and jailed for criminal defamation, this is on record! She is the same person who used to take false about me and my character to Red Pepper,” Nameere went on.
I worked with Minibuzz for almost a year it was a daily program, how come when I resigned, the Minibuzz management had only praises to say about me in their press release?! They went on to throw me a party and even commended me as the best presenter they’ve had in terms of understanding and applying research as well as teamwork. These were their words!”
She also rubbished rumours that she had an upcoming show in NTV which was later cancelled saying it would tantamount to conflict of interest with Vision Group where she has a contract.
“Some rumour mongers who call themselves journalists have lied to the public that I have a show coming up on NTV. I ignored it because none of them called me to confirm their “news” and of course it was a lie because my contract with Vision Group still stands! The shows I’m filming are for my show coming up on a Vision Group TV station,” she said.
“Some people have made it their job to demonise my relationship with NTV. I ask you to get over me! I worked for NTV, I added value to the station with a fully sponsored show; I added value to my viewers who keep asking me for the show every day of my life. When management changed from Joe Munene, things changed, I was not listened to when that bully manager was sucking life out of me, I resigned and left; finally they discovered who she was, God punished her. I didn’t celebrate her woes on any platform bse I had moved on, I was with Vision Group, whatever was happening between her and NTV was none of my business,” said the former Life Stories host.
“I neither have any problem with NTV nor have any shows I was preparing for NTV. That’s an old chapter in my life, am with Vision Group, I’m happy and peaceful so let me be! People tell me about Life Stories every day of my life. I’ll do it again some day on any TV, it doesn’t have to be a particular TV,” she said. “Certain media platforms have already got due communication from my lawyers over injurious falsehoods that they spread about me last year, that’s why some of them gave me a break lately. So whoever is telling people I had any shows coming up with NTV, manya what managers are beefing me and want me to apologise first, you are telling lies; you are affecting my contract with Vision Group because that would be conflict of interest on my side, it could cost me and I won’t let you get that far!!!” she vowed.
