Like we had earlier on warned you of the inevitable end of WBS TV, the day is here. All local viewers are to stand by their TV stations as we say farewell to one of the private owned pioneer TV Stations in Uganda.
Back in April, management of the TV station was taken over by the URA after the company failed to clear tax liabilities over Shs.7billion.
According to the URA, the tax arrears had been accumulating to over a 10-year period. This signaled the inevitable end of the station.
In November, Spur magazine reported how the station had been bought off by ‘Kwese’ a continental sports TV owned by Zimbabwean tycoon Strive Masiyiwa. The station is soon to be renamed ‘Kwese Sports’ and will mainly broadcast sports.
Wavah Broadcasting Service (WBS) was incorporated in October 1997 and started broadcasting in January 1999. It was one of the pioneers, privately owned, free-to-air TV station in Uganda.
