After nearly two years out of mainstream media, former Daily Monitor political editor and Fourth Estate Talk Show host has been picked to head the East African in Uganda.
Mr Mwanguhya, who once edited weekend politics at Daily Monitor is yet to report to work. He has replaced Mr Michael Wakabi.
Mr Mwanguhya will be charged with leading a team of journalists to tell Uganda’s story to East Africa.
A source in Nairobi speaking to EagleOnline, confirmed the appointment saying Mr Mwanguhya will take the job. Mr Mwanguhya has wealth of experience spanning over 10 years and believes he is best positioned to grow the paper’s editorial content.
Mr Mwanguhya left Monitor Publications nearly two years ago and joined Citizens’ Coalition for Electoral Democracy in Uganda, a civil society organization that promotes political and human rights awareness.
His former and current colleagues in the industry have reacted to his appointment positively.
“He is a passionate journalist. The job gives him opportunity to make decisions in what he believes in,” Mr Chris Obore, former editor investigations at Monitor and now Communications director at Parliament of Uganda said.
Mr Felix Osike, Sunday Vision Editor at the New Vision said, “He is well grounded in journalistic and well accomplished and we are happy about that development.”
