Alex was a popular presenter, loved by many: Amin Hussein, the late Idi Amin’s son had this to say about Alex’s retirement:
“Surely there comes a time for everyone to hang up the boots after decades of work and service. But if there was an age limit stopping Alex Ndawula from presenting in the media, I would pass a motion that it be scrapped, and that he even switches to presenting on Television as well”.

That said, unconfirmed sources say, despite having worked for a leading media house in the country for over 20 years with handsome pay, Alex reportedly doesn’t own a remarkable asset or even a stable family.
Some sources claim, DJ Alex’s retainer has a hidden agenda: Between now and early next year, Alex will have lost popularity. And thus, competition will not benefit much if they take him on, as opposed to hiring him today fresh from Capital Radio.
