Mujuni Raymond is a 25-year-old investigative journalist in East Africa currently working with NBS TV.
Raymond is a two time winner of the National Journalism Award for explanatory reporting and Investigative Reporting for his stories that exposed a high end government to government deal for the exchange of refugees for guns between Uganda and Israel.
Raymond is a multimedia journalist with apt skills in using innovative ways to tell stories. At NTV, he used data and visualizations together with human sourcing to put a face to stories that defined the country.
He has reported from the slums of Kibera on unserved justice for Kenya’s Post-election Violence victims, to the dangerous youngest nation of South Sudan on the refugee crisis. He has been at the centre of reporting for stories on income inequality, technology innovations and Uganda’s development agenda.
He has also interviewed various heads of states, ministers, influential businessmen and the United Nations Secretary-General – António Gutteres.
His experiences earned him a column at the Daily Monitor, the country’s most authoritative paper and regular commentary on both local and international media on stories seeking to understand the region and the country.
He currently writes a column for the NilePost, a leading online news agency.
Raymond is a thought leader and fellow with Leo Africa’s Young and Emerging Leaders Fellowship, a programme seeking to provide homegrown, thought-driven, solutions to the problems facing Sub-Saharan Africa.
