Journalists and residents of Ntungamo are mourning the death of veteran Journalist Thomas Musana.

Musana succumbed to injuries sustained from an accident on Christmas day when a speeding car knocked him as he rode on his motorcycle along the Ntungamo-Kabale road.

He was serving as a radio administrator, programs producer, deputy manager and presenter at Radio Ankole.

“We have not lost a worker, we have lost an asset and an all-round media personality who could do anything related to radio, no one will believe easily that Musana is gone,” Mr Elliott Kabangira Magande, the station Manager Radio Ankole said in an interview on Tuesday.

Musana succumbed to a suspected blood clot on Tuesday evening at Mayanja Memorial Hospital in Mbarara Town.

“It’s by God’s timing that this has happened, we should not blame anyone or think that its witchcraft or satan. What we all need to know is that we are all meant to die like we are all are born. Musana has been a creative person we shall all miss, he will not be missed by the radio like us who heard his voice,” South Ankole Diocese Rt Rev Bishop Nathan Ahimbisibwe said.

Musana started his career at Kanungu based Radio Kinkizi in 2003 before moving to Ntungamo in 2008. He fluently spoke French, English, Runyankole/ Rukiga, Kinyarwanda, Lingala, Arabic, Spanish, Kiswahili, Acholi, Lugbara, Luo among other languages.

At Radio Ankole, he presented an early morning show; Kiswahili and Kinyarwanda news, produced programs and adverts, and was the administrator for the Radio as well as an assistant manager. He also taught Swahili and French at the Kanungu based Great Lakes University.
