Following pressure from MultiChoice Africa leadership, Charles Hamya - who was initially reluctant to resign - decided to quit and will be leaving MultiChoice Uganda at 31 March 2019.
It follows after Charles Hamya's sex scandal that damaged not just MultiChoice Africa, MultiChoice Uganda and DStv Uganda but also the morale of staffers working at MultiChoice and wondering why MultiChoice would allow a person to continue to work as the leader without repercussions whilst creating an untenable working environment.
In an email to all MultiChoice Uganda staffers, Charles Hamya, tried to put a positive spin on his imminent departure, starting off by saying he will be celebrating "22 years of service at MultiChoice Uganda" but not saying a word about the nasty details of cheating on his wife, Crusid Matovu, that has now derailed his career.
"I will, effective 31 March 2019, step down from my current position as general manager," Charles Hamya, who owns share in the company, wrote staffers.
"It has been my singular honour and privilege to have worked with each and every one of you over the years," writes Charles Hamya - who of course enjoyed special privilege working closely with Phoebe Nakabazzi.
In late-July Charles Hamya took unexpected leave following the expose of his extra-marital affair to all MultiChoice Uganda workers, with Willem Hattingh who took over as acting MultiChoice Uganda general manager.
It came after his wife, Crusid Matovu, in an email to MultiChoice Uganda staffers, revealed the pain, heartache and frustration of Charles Hamya's torrid affair with the DStv Uganda marketing manager.
Crusid Matovu in an email detailed Charles Hamya and Phoebe Nakabazzi's extra-marital affair and their secret hotel trysts that she said "shouldn't be what MultiChoice Uganda stands for".
