“Rest in Peace Radio Legendary Alex Ndawula. You paved a way for many. Rest in Power” tweeted TV presenter, Douglas Lwanga.
To Allan Tashobya, Ndawula was “A unique voice, legend, and one of the larger-than-life Media Personalities on Capital FM Uganda who made us fall in love with this whole thing we now call a career.

I used his works on-air as training sessions for my inner burning passion for the mic.
