Ugandan movie,”Kony: Order from Above” has been selected for screening at the African Film Festival (TAFF) which will take place in June this year in Dallas, Texas, USA.

The development was revealed by the movie director Steve T Ayeny who noted that this is a big achievement for the Ugandan film industry.

“It is a big achievement that a Ugandan film has been selected among many other films from different countries around the world for TAFF,” Ayeny disclosed. “As a director, I am very excited and feel that God has really done amazing things in our lives. 2020 we have bigger projects coming up.”

TAFF celebrates films and arts that either promote African culture; address issues affecting Africa and people of African descent; or explore African landmarks and historic leaders.

Meanwhile, last year in November, the film launched a North America tour and so far it has had 11 screenings in cities like Montreal and Ottawa, Canada among others.

“Right now we are proud that our work is out there being watched by people all over the world,” Ayeny added.

Based on a true story, “Kony: Order from Above” is a drama that  tells a story of two youth, Otti and Aguti who fall in love during the tumultuous northern Uganda Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) insurgency.

“Bettinah Tianah Is Our Lowest Paid NTV Staff,”Insider Spills Secrets

Published

Find out information about Coronavirus in Uganda. More here.

Although Bettinah Tianah is currently featuring on magazine covers and threatening to sue night clubs in United States, the situation seems dire back home.

Following Sheilah Gashumba’s expose on the low pay in the media industry, more beans have been spilled about the official pay for various TV presenters…

According to an inside source at NTV; “NMG introduced a new policy that one should be paid depending on the financial abilities of their show. Basically to motivate presenters to work hard at making their shows big.”

“At the time, Style Project , a fashion show on NTV has no major sponsor. Bettinah Tianah had first been placed on a 50K per show but she bargained hard and was raised to 100K per show,” the source reveals.

According to the new finance strategy, every show is pivoted to pay a presenter depending on how much that show earns for NTV. “By that time, Style Project was the least performing show. That is how Bettinah came out as the least employed person at NTV Uganda. Before it was Sheilah Gashumba at 50K. But since then, it is Bettinah at 100K.”

At this rate, we can understand why Bettinah would want to sue all those using her photos.

With the launch of the integrated e-shopping platform StarTimes GO, the company is excited to have connected with the first customer, Sula, last weekend. After watching the TV programme StarTimes GO, Sula decided to buy a solar kit alongside with a 24″ Digital LED TV. She made a call to StarTimes to order the products and was quite pleased with the door to door delivery and installation. While receiving her order, Sula said, “I like that StarTimes can easily be accessed in terms of customer care services unlike some service providers. I was interested in buying the solar kit which helps during power blackout situations. It will also help us enjoy our family TV-watching time without worrying about unstable power supply. I was relieved to know that we can pay for the solar kit in instalments. This reduces on the financial burden. With StarTimes GO giving a special offer on plenty of products, we got a FREE two-year TV program bouquet for our solar kit!”

The captain of the car fleet for delivery, Charles, escorted the products to the customer’s home which is about 40km away from the city centre of Kampala. He said, “It is not quite convenient for a family living far away from the city centre to carry these products home. We hope that the customers can enjoy their shopping with StarTimes GO from the beginning to the end.”

Together with Charles, the whole team of delivery and installation are quite honoured to complete the mission for serving the first customer of StarTimes GO, among other customers who followed, especially when they see the smile of satisfaction on their faces.

Mr. Franklin Wang, the StarTimes CEO in Uganda remarked, “We have been thinking of the considerate services which make the digital life available to more people hence the e-shopping platform StarTimes GO. We appreciate the support and trust given by the customers; and thanks to our staff in call centre, delivery car fleet and installation team, the StarTimes GO is operating as we expected and will keep providing products of quality to the public.”

StarTimes GO has made it easier to shop digitally for the product you need. Book via StarTimes GO and enjoy great discounts be it on a decoder, TV or solar system.
