Chris Ireland Takes Over As Sanyu FM General Manager

One of the former 88.2 Sanyu FM radio presenters Chris Ireland has taken over the radio station as the general manager. Ireland first worked at Sanyu FM, Uganda’s oldest FM radio station, in 1993 following the station’s formation in December that year.

Ireland now replaces Betsy Mugamba who was recently fired by the station’s owner Sudhir Ruparelia after leaked audios pinned her for leading a workers’ strike in June.

“As general manager, Ireland will spark a new wave of dominance over the airwaves with a fresh set of presenters and a dedicated team with on goal in mind - to be the market leader of Uganda's radio scene,” the station said in a statement.

“With a natural inclination to music, Chris is best suited to guide the station that brags a sound that can only be described as ‘Today’s Best Music,” the statement added.

In the old days, Ireland, using the moniker of ‘Darling DJ Chris’ pioneered the very first morning show on Sanyu FM; he now returns 26 years later with a wealth of marketing knowledge that will push the station further.

As a marketer, Ireland has worked with MTN Uganda, SABMiller, Uganda Breweries, Broadband Uganda and Madhvani Industries among other places where he rendered his talents.

While he was away from Sanyu undertaking marketing jobs with various companies, Ireland founded a band called Code 9 that kept him around the entertainment circles of Uganda.

AfDB Rebuts Claims It Plans To Provide Financial Support To EACOP

The African Development Bank (AfDB) has refuted claimed contained in various media claims that the institution plans to provide financial support to the East African Crude Oil Pipeline Project (EACOP). 

"The Bank strongly refutes the claims in the misleading article, which references a letter by a group of civil society organizations and climate change advocates asking the institution to withdraw from the project due to its potential social and environmental damage," the bank said in a statement over the weekend.

The regional bank said the NEPAD Infrastructure Project Preparation Facility (NEPAD-IPPF) has not provided financing to any Private Sector Company for upstream oil or gas pipeline projects in East Africa.

And that no commitment was therefore made to any party to fund the East African Crude Oil Pipeline Project. The project is not included in the Bank’s lending program and the bank is strongly committed to renewable energies.

"The Bank is committed to facilitating the transition to low-carbon and climate-resilient development in African countries across all its operational priority areas," it said.
