    The evergreen Tv presenter secured the job at WBS through former finance minister Gerald Ssendaula who was friends with Wavamunno. Ssendaula was a family friend, Nakazibwe has said in interviews.

    She has said that she could have lost the opportunity to work with WBS, but she says the recommendation coming from a minister who was friends with the company owner made it hard for the managers to reject her.

    At WBS, she started as a news reporter though she had eyed anchoring.

    A few months into the job, Wavamunno directed her supervisors to assign her the role of giving traffic updates.

    After a year and a half at WBS, NTV launched in Uganda and started hiring. Nakazibwe applied.

    For NTV, Faridah Nakazibwe applied to work as an editor and reporter. She had been with the company since 2006.

    In September 2023, Nakazibwe obtained a Master's in Business Administration from Victoria University.
