coop on Scoop presenter, Mary Luswata, isn’t a member of UAH yet but she is known for dissing everyone on Urban TV.Luswata is her father’s name while Mary is her Mother’s name but I don’t know where and when she was born.She started working with Vision Voice now Xfm when she was still at University as a kids’ show host. She did a request show on the same station for about a year until New Vision started the English TV station and she was stolen from radio to TV. She did the breakfast show for 2 years before scoop started.Her scoop now airs between 9pm to 10 pm daily on Urban TV.
she was a student of Makerere University doing Tourism which apparently she did not complete according to the campus bee website.Her stale gossip started way back from campus. All she did was gossip in class about fellow coursemates, lecturers, which student is sleeping with a lecturer and tycoons, a former coursemate reveals. Consequently, she accumulated retakes and just decided to save her struggling parents the burden of wasting their hard-earned money.
Several celebrities hate gossip queen, Mary Luswata over her criticisms about their lifestyles.On her very opinionated celebrity-gossip segment on Urban TV, Mary Luswata comes off as aggressive, malicious, loud and yes very bitchy.Some celebrities have come up in retaliation; Judith Heard met the Vision Group CEO Robert Kabushenga asking that the presenter be relieved of her duties. NBS presenter Doreen Komuhangi made news when she stormed Urban TV offices demanding to size up with Mary Luswata. Well, Luswata seems to enjoy the response from her victims, as she always returns and throws more disses at the celebrities that attack her.
She says she doesn’t date people in the media. She is on record saying that she sometimes smokes weed to keep herself going, and that she likes sex so much.
She has been through the hands (or is it beds) of several men, most notably a pastor who rejected her, broke her heart and left her with a stream of tears.Luswata and the pastor dated for four years.Luswata met the pastor while she was at University and for four years, they were lovers.
She says the current Miss Uganda is a shift from what Ugandans perceive as beauty. Luswata has tried several times to brighten her skin using products such as Makako soap, but some parts like her arms are still too black.
I love watching the Scoop but she should at least first verify her information and also use appropriate language when saying some things on air because these things last long and will always haunt you as a person. She was denied a chance to represent Uganda in the Big Brother Africa house because of her big mouth. I have never seen a woman who contributed to cultural degeneration in our country like Mary Luswata.
