NBS news anchor Samson Kasumba has finally revealed his salary range for his social media followers. The Next Media employee said that he is paid more than Ugandan President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni.
“The fact is @nbstv pays me way more in monthly salary than you Ugandans pay your president. So what business do I have with such a poor paying job? Besides poor pay, you are insulted for any/everything. Let me keep my job. I shall leave that one for those who want pain,” Samson Kasumba tweeted.
President Museveni’s official monthly salary is 3.6 million per month which is pretty much a heavy paycheck compared to many citizens. Samson Kasumba earning more than president Museveni makes him not worry about his bills.
When asked whether a young popular journalist earned more than him, Samson Kasumba denied having an idea about it much as he seemed unbothered.
“I am happy he is. I had no idea that was the case. I am already collecting a bunch more than I imagined so not one bit bothered who is paid what,” he replied.
