TV Girls That Disappeared Without Trace
At one time, not so long ago, there was an overload of hot, beautiful girls on Ugandan TV screens.
The girls had it all, the looks, the smiles, the curves, and most importantly the brains. These girls made men hooked on local screens for hours on end.
Sadly, like everything, this phase passed, and slowly the girls disappeared from the screens and were replaced by what anyone can call a would-come shadows.
Lets take a nostalgic look back and envy. Back to a time when TV girls would inspire with intelligent talk and not just tantalize by wiggling their curves.
Where are they now?
Tumusiime Gertrude Uwitware was a news reporter on NTV in the good not so golden days of a few years ago. She joined TV shortly after her University studies. She joined the same time with Sheila Nduhukire. Good load, Uwitware was a cutie with an attitude. Her character was stemmed from a feminist angling. She was not afraid to express her opinion. Her stories had an edge and her social media commentary cut like a knife.
It was this opinion that landed her in trouble. At the peak of her short career, she was reportedly kidnapped tortured. She has never openly spoken about this ordeal but friends say it stemmed from her stinging criticism of powerful female politicians in Uganda.
The kidnap ordeal traumatized her and decided to quit TV and the Media. She mysteriously went off our TV screens. She didn’t even say bye.
Today, Gertrude lives a private life in and out of Uganda and she doesn’t reveal what she actually does but scanning her social timeline, we notice that her brain has not lost any of its cells.
She’s still opinionated and gender equality issues still pepper her commentary on twitter.
However close friends tell us that she has gotten to comfortable and added a little bit of kilos on her curves.
Mary Luswata made her trade mark using her entertainment and gossip show on Urban TV years back. There is no celebrity that never felt her presence on TV. She would abuse and expose Ugandan celebrities. She got into their skin and mysteriously left. She was loved and hated by many. Today no one knows Where Mary is.
The humble and cute Emily Mwebaze graced our TV screens for a while. She was at UBC and later joined Urban TV. Many used to love her style of reading English news. She left TV and went back home Mbarara.
She used to present an entertainment show on Bukedde TV. She was loved by many. However, when she was fired from the station, she went to unknown place. A few days back, we landed on her pictures in the US.

Sarah Mubest was a darling to Western Uganda’s TV West. One time, it was reported that horny Mbarara men used to camp around High street Mbarara near Hotel Classic waiting for her to pop out of the station’s offices when they were on the building just across the hotel.
As her career hit the top, she mysteriously started missing work. Everyone wondered what had happened. It was then understood that Mubest had scooped a job in the Middle East and had moved on from Uganda and away from the Media. Her booze mates miss her in Mbarara.
