Our source however reveals that there is no other radio station within Pakwach District registered with Uganda Communications Commission apart from 100.2 Pakwach Fm.
We also had to contact Mr Agenonga Robert, the proprietor of the yet to be established radio station in Dei, Panyimur, Pakwach District to get his comments on this development.
Agenonga refuted the advert and called it false news. Saying his radio station is still battling with Uganda Communications Commission for license and has nothing to do with any job advert.
'We can’t make such an announcement, we shall do ours officially' – Agenonga.
The ghost radio station ran the advert on WhatsApp and Facebook groups.
