Econet Media, has been granted the rights for the purchase of Wava Broadcasting Station (WBS TV) by the Uganda Communications Commission and the Uganda Broadcasting Council.
The WBS was owned by Gordon Wavamunno, the Ugandan entrepreneur. The company was actually placed under receivership by Uganda Revenue Authority due to the challenges it was facing. It was also reported that the company had an unpaid tax of 2 million USD.
Following this, Econet Media will be rebranding WBS to Kwesé Free Sports for a 24/7 delivery of Kwesé sports content. It has been stated that the company’s existing contracts would be terminated when WBS Limited would cease to operate.
