Media Personality Willis Raburu has opened up on why he left his lucrative job at Citizen TV.

He quit after 13 years, leaving many of his fans heartbroken.

In an interview with Mark Masai, he says he stayed for all this years because he loved the work environment at Royal Media.

According to Raburu, he needed a break to be able to rest before he takes up a new challenge.

"I was loyal to royal. It was the organizational culture.

My colleagues were great and I loved the way the company operated and their open door policy.

Over the period that I have been there , I did different things among them conflict stories, political, human interests


I started doing digital consultancy for companies. I realized I have never taken a break, I needed a rest. I just wanted to do something new, and to rest,.

"I am about to finish my Masters at USIU and that made me broaden my thinking."

Raburu says for a long time he had always wanted to be a journalist.

"I had told my mum and aunty that I would read news as it was the only thing that made my dad 'shut up.' despite how powerful he was at the time."

Raburu says he would miss family occasions due to the nature of his work to an extent people stopped inviting him.

He now says he can focus on hanging out with family more.
