About Willis Raburu

Willis joined Moi University where he studied Bachelor of Information Science- Media. A passionate journalist. His father wanted him to do IT but Willis had a passion for Media so he lied to his father that he was studying IT only for his dad to discover that he chose the Media option during his graduation in 2010.

Willis Raburu joined K24 as an intern while in third year at Moi University.  After graduation he was hired by citizen TV in October 2010 when he was 24 years. He has worked there till now.

“When I was 24 and I got hired by Citizen Television straight out of campus – that was a very pivotal point in my life. Many did not believe that one can get employed at a reputable organization without having ‘key’ connections. The job came at a time when I had been turned down by other local TV stations – they told me I did not have the right type of voice for broadcast,” he said.

Since joining Citizen TV he has won several awards namely;

  1. Maji Award: The award was for a three part series dubbed ” DEADLY WATERS”
