Not only was Kabuura the brain child but he also holds the patent rights to the name Pressbox.

On crossing over to the Naguru based NBS tv, his former employers at NTV planed to continue using the NTV Pressbox name and had started advertising the new show.

When Kabuura caught wind of developments at Kampala Serena he swung into action.
