We caught up with brains behind Uganda’s leading local storyteller to get an exclusive on the 2-year journey of Pearl Magic and the instrumental role that she has played in ensuring the success of the channel.

Mathore joined Mnet in 2010 in the capacity of Head of Content Acquisition for Mnet East Africa. She was later promoted to Channel Head for Maisha Magic East. In 2018, Mathore went on to launch Pearl Magic, Uganda’s local storyteller.  “Prior to joining the leading Pay TV platform, I worked at numerous Free-to-air channels in both TV Production, TV Programming as well as Newsrooms in Kenya” said Mathore. With over 15 years in the Television and Entertainment space, it is safe to say that it is onwards and upwards for Mathore and channels within her cluster.

Journey down memory lane…

“The channel launched on 1 October 2018 with a content mix of 100% Ugandan Movies, Drama’s, Comedies, Music and Lifestyle shows nourishing the culture of family time in many households around Uganda” said Mathore. Throwback to the hilarious Love Makanika, the much-loved television series 5@home as well authentic Ugandan Movies!

Promoting Ugandan Content

“As a channel, we continue to find fresh content that resonates with the audience and that is equally relatable. We continuously strive to entertain, educate and enrich the lives of our audience” said Mathore. This is also achieved through continuously reviewing audience feedback, which is similarly backed by viewer rating stats. Over a short period of time, one can attest that the channels licensed content such as Uganda Movies, Mzigo Express as well as Sesira have enjoyed a good audience following on the Channel. “Due to Covid-19 restrictions centered around public gatherings we were forced to unceremoniously bid farewell to our first and much-loved original production, Our Perfect Wedding until further notice” she concluded.

 2020 and beyond….

“We have learned audience behavior and continuously make the necessary and well-informed investments to ensure that we remain top of mind” said Mathore. The Channel Head that stays slaying within the content space further announced additions to the Pearl Magic Original Productions slate as a gift to Uganda for its patronage since the launch of Pearl Magic… and the commitment to continue investing in the local creative industries.

Top Police authorities are slated to meet the Katikkiro of Buganda Charles Peter Mayiga this morning to tackle the security raid on a thanksgiving function organized by the Mbogo clan head, and religious leaders at Mugulu in Mityana town over last weekend.

Mobogo Clan head, Kayiira Gajuule had invited Bishop Emeritus John Baptist Kaggwa the retired Bishop of Masaka Diocese to grace the thanksgiving ceremony when anti-riot police stormed the area and sprayed teargas to disperse everyone.

This incident has since drawn widespread criticism from both Buganda kingdom loyalists who have since marched to Bulange Mengo demanding an apology from the Police besides the public condemning police actions

Just yesterday afternoon,. Police were forced to use teargas and live bullets to disperse a group of Buganda loyalists at Mityana municipality protesting the incident and demanding that District Police Commander, Alex Mwine Mukono unconditionally releases all the motorcycles he confiscated during the raid.

This compelled the police boss IGP Martin Okoth Ochola to apologize to the bishop and the Catholic Church.

The police political commissar led by a team of senior officers announced that they would be visiting Bishop Kaggwa at his home to announce their apology to his family and the church on behalf of IGP Ochola .

On Monday, the police spokesperson Fred Enanga apologized to the Catholic Church defending the police action on preventing the spread of COVID19.

He said the firing of teargas was caused by a group of uninvited politicians including Francis Zaake among others who had attracted youth.

Now according to the Buganda kingdom spokesperson Noah Kiyimba, a meeting between the Katikkiro Charles Peter Mayiga and the top police leadership is scheduled for 11:00 am at Bulange Mengo.
