After days of speculation and uncertainty, we can exclusively reveal that Justine Nameere’s rich background with close ties to the National Resistance Movement, is the bench mark for both her new appointment as a senior presidential advisor and the realization of her dream to own a television in Uganda.
Though many thought that it was through the personal input of her father Hon. Vicent Bamulangaki Ssempija, the minister for Defense and veteran affairs, it is farther from the actual facts on our desk.
According to a reliable source at the center of power, it has emerged that Nameere, having put up a spirited fight in the last concluded presidential and parliamentary elections, where she vied for the central region youth slot but lost to Agnes Kirabo, captured the attention of President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni.
Museveni got floored by Nameere`s astute campaign strategies, impressive legal knowledge and rich television history. It is said that a series of meetings and presentation of proposals from team Nameere, were presented.
They all focused on how to woo and win back youth from NUP in Masaka, back to NRM. It was hence resolved to invest in an electronic media project, that would lure the youth and thus; the realization of the TM TV project in Kizungu, Masaka City. Nameere becomes the first indigenous woman to own a TV station.
Initially, it was to be launched on 30th of September 2021, with President Museveni as the chief guest. But a series of overhead set up of pre-production and program scheduling delayed it until they hired the auspices of media expert Joel Isabirye. Hence TM TV, was officially launched by the Prime Minister Rt. Hon. Robinah Nabbanja on 30th October 2021.

Prior to the launch, Nameere, in August 2021, was appointed as the senior presidential advisor in charge of Greater masaka, thus making it a double celebration.
Nameere, at one time had a stint at NTV, and was tipped as one of its best presenters. She later left and had been a content creator for different television stations such as Bukedde TV, UBC TV, and Salt TV.
She’s also been a producer for different reality shows such as The Miss Uganda Reality show for BBS Telefayina, Tulambule for NBS Television and lastly filmed documentaries for several organizations.
