The Son, The heir
Geoffrey Kaweesa Kateregga Kiwanuka Katetemera a.k.a Geoff Kats has very, VERY big shoes to fill. He is the son of Andy Simon Kaweesa [RIP]. And anyone that knows The Father knows that if The Son is going to be on radio, he will have to match the style that epitomized his Dad.
Mr. Kats, originally from, Masaka was born to Alex Phoebe Nakibuuka and Mr. Kaweesa - and grew up in Ntinda, Kampala. At Radio Uganda Boston, Geoff is Programs Director and also an on air personality.
Geoffrey always wanted to be in radio because of his father. Everyone knew The Old Man and he fully appreciates radio. He saw the impact while he was growing up in his father’s wings.
Geoff Kats went to Nakasero Primary School, Namilyango College, Ndejje S.S.S + then Nkumba University. He moved to the United States in 1997 where he studied at Mass Bay Community College of Boston and is now on radiougandaboston.com presenting “Gyetuva ne Gyetulaga” with Simple on Wednesday. He also does “Saturday Weekend Club” a program whose name was taken from his father’s show on Radio Uganda. On Wednesdays, he does “Smooth Jazz.”
Geoffrey is going to make radiougandaboston.com the epitome of broadcast. Plans are underway to move and progress the station from the world wide web and also to Boston airwaves - introducing a rainbow of programs and enhancing the quality of the brand.
This is important to Mr. Kats. Afterall, his young son, named after his beloved father and nephew are both intently listening.
