Twendii is a Kampala based source of breaking news, video, features, entertainment and sports, as well as a highly engaged global community of Ugandans for opinion and conversation. The site launched its first international edition in November 2019.

Twendii is looking for visionary, ideas-driven editors/writers and experienced managers to join our Enterprise team as pop news editors and columnists. The ideal candidates will be able to drive long-form investigations, as well as turn around sharp, timely articles off the news cycle.
