“I have made the decision to leave the Royal Media Services and it’s been a tough decision, but they have been so gracious to me from the time I tendered in my resignation,” he said.
At RMS, Raburu worked as a news reporter, news anchor and host of various segments on Citizen TV including Sporty Monday, Relationships, Your Health, and What’s Cooking.
It has taken RMS time to get Willis Raburu’s replacement owing to his talent and versatility.
