KAMPALA: Vision Group’s Managing Director Robert Kabushenga has resigned. However according to various sources, he has been sacked by the board for poor performance.
In an email to all the Vision Group staff on Friday January 29, 2021, Kabushenga explained his decision, in which he said the board had agreed to.
“This is to let you know that for personal reasons I have asked the Board for an early retirement and this has been accepted,” he wrote.
Kabushenga explained that he will oversee a 90-day transition, as requested by the Board, before moving on.
“I am proud of the success we achieved and the impact we have had in society. This was possible because we worked together as a team. No single person could have done it on their own, certainly not me. It was an absolute honor and pleasure to have done so,” he explained.
Kabushenga has been the CEO of the news company since 2007. Announcing his exit was welcomed by mixed reaction from the group employees with some saying his exit is overdue. Other sources say Kabushenge realised that his contract wasn’t going to be renewed given that the new board wasn’t happy with the group performance.
