Media Personality Willis Raburu has broken his silence over what he has been engaged in since he quit his news anchoring job at Citizen TV towards the end of June.
Raburu, who landed a new job at TV47 three days ago said he had a lot of free time initially but became busy over time as people sought him for consultancy.
“During the break, I took time to do my Master’s in Strategic corporate communication. I want to finish the coursework this year then I will work on the project later on. By next year September I will have graduated,” Raburu said.
“Other than working to complete my masters, I have also been offering consultancy on communications strategy for several organisations, including Nairobi County,” he added.
He spoke during an interview with TV47 on Friday adding that he will enroll in a doctorate program once he’s done with the master’s.
“By the time we get to the next general election, I will be called a doctor. You must address me as a doctor,” he said.
Additionally, Raburu noted that he has been spending time with his family.
“My fiancé and my two kids were just having a ball bonding, getting to know them. That happened for a while and then it quickly got busy somehow,” Raburu said.
He said it was as if people realised he had a lot of free time after he left Citizen and they started seeking him for different reasons.
“I just started getting a lot of offers and work in terms of the consultancy side. But mostly I was taking deliberate time off to be with my family and spend some time with them,” he said.
Raburu noted that his time with his family has really helped him grow closer with his son and daughter.
Additionally, Raburu said his son is his biggest fan and that he even calls him Bazuu.
He said his family always keeps him grounded.
On Tuesday, Raburu announced on his social media that he will be joining TV47 and bringing along his Wabebe experience show.
“Welcome to the new journey… The wait is over! Announcing my partnership with TV 47 Kenya! WABEBE! #WabebeXP,” Raburu said.
