Willis Raburu lands new job as Nairobi Governor’s Communications Director
Former Citizen TV presenter Willis Raburu has revealed that he has landed a new job as Nairobi Governor Johnson Sakaja’s Communications Director.
Raburu made the announcement on Phil Director’s podcast on Monday, where he spoke about his new role and his plans for the future.
Raburu said that he is excited about the new challenge and that he is looking forward to working with Sakaja to communicate the governor’s vision for Nairobi. He also said that he is still considering his options for a potential return to the screen, but that he is focused on his new role for now.
Raburu’s new job comes after he left Citizen TV in March 2022. He had been with the station for 10 years, and he was one of the most popular presenters on the network.
In the podcast, Raburu also spoke about the challenging times he faced when his body weight became the subject of ridicule and criticism. He said that the negative comments took a toll on his mental and emotional well-being, particularly when even friends within the industry joined in the body shaming.
Raburu said that he is now in a much better place, and that he is grateful for the support of his family and friends. He said that he hopes his story will inspire others who are struggling with body image issues.
