Citizen TV’s WILLIS RABURU ……. Why he is what he IS!!!

Wednesday, February 13, 2013 - In less than three years, he has emerged to being one of the top journalists on Kenyan soil and his Truth Meter on Citizen TV one of the most watched shows. How did he manage to be who he is today, Willis Raburu talks to Dorcas Karuana of Career Point.

Willis revealed that three elements of life which include good work ethics, excellence and working smart are the attributes which have helped him to be where he is now. He further indicated that he is very inspired by JCC Bishop Allan Kiuna who is his life coach.

Read what he had to say:

#Good work ethics
My father (Peter Raburu) taught me this while he worked as a Provincial Commissioner. I believe in diligence, team work and excellence. At Citizen, the team has helped me grow; for instance, Abdi Osman taught me the hamburger theory, where you start the story with back ground, then give the meat and end with what is expected. Franklin Wambugu, Mercy Oburu and Peter Opondo have been of great help among others.

My boss Farida Karoney, the Editorial director, taught me that success is not an event, it's a way of life. People should know me not because I work for citizen but because of the way I use the platform given to me. I let my work should speak for me. 

#Working smart
To go where nobody has gone, you need to do what nobody else has done. In Citizen, interns are not allowed to voice for their stories, however I did my first voice to camera within the second week as an intern. Thanks to my camera man Dennis Ochieng who encouraged me to do it and it did wonders.
