Former Royal Media Services (RMS) employee Willis Raburu is set to serve as Nairobi Governor Johson Sakaja’s Communications Director, responsible for managing press relations and developing contacts with media members and influencers.
The former Citizen TV presenter took up the city hall job just a few weeks after resigning at RMS following a 13-year stint.
Raburu is expected to also take charge of leading a team of skilled professionals in the fields of communication, marketing, and design.
The former presenter hinted first about the new role while in a sitdown with Phil Director on his podcast. Without sharing much, Raburu revealed that he’s joining the Nairobi County Government and will be stationed at City Hall.
Early this month, in an interview with NairobiNews, the famous TV anchor revealed that he quit Citizen TV making June his last month at the company.
“It has not been an easy decision to make but the company has held my hand through all this,” he said in the interview.
“I am immensely grateful for the past 13 years I have spent with RMS. It has been a remarkable journey filled with growth, opportunities, and unforgettable moments. I extend my heartfelt appreciation to the entire team for their support and guidance throughout my career,” he said.
In his RMS tenure, Raburu has been an influential figure, especially for the youth with his show ’10 over 10′. He has also served as a television reporter, news anchor, entertainment show host and radio presenter.
Currently, the presenter has a total of six shows that he’s hosting that will all start a farewell segment for him through June before he leaves.
