Willis Raburu Citizen TV Kenya 11

You have heard him on  Truth Meter every Friday on Citizen Tv and you wonder “who is this guy?” and “How does he always manage to bring the joke home? is there something different about this guy?

Find out below :

Who Is Willis Raburu?

Willis Raburu is an beneficiary of Gods grace..plain and simple

Tell Us Did You Ever Dream Of Being A News Reporter And When Was That?

“From the age of 7. I would walk around the house and gather newspapers then take them to my mum and make her sit down and tell her “ I want to read to you the news” and she would sit as I read through the various section of the news that is Local, international, business and sports.

I would always tell her “ mum one day ill be on TV” and I appreciate her response she always told me “ Yes you will” So it has always been in my heart, I always drifted towards the languages and writing, I loved it.

Whenever I would want to escape the pains and stresses of life I would retreat to writing, poetry, stories the whole nine yards.. So yes I always wanted to be a Journalist, I find it intriguing that you have access to all this information, then you filter and sift it for the masses whilst ensuring you balance it and inject excellence.”


Many People Don’t Know This, Is Willis Raburu Born Again?

Willis Raburu is born again.. I encountered Christ very differently lol, When I was in class 2 or  3 I recall my father gathering the whole family together and making us choose whether we wanted to get saved or not, so I would say the first time I got saved it was en masse haha, funny I know but this was part of the biblical “ train a child in the way when he is young and when he is old he wont depart from it”

As I grew older I understood the depth of it all, and realize the importance of having a special relationship with the God and I tell you that is when I got such peace and sense of purpose

Is it Challenging To Be A Christian and A Reporter.. If Yes What Are Some Of The Challenges you experience

Its challenging to be a Christian in any work place, people will always pick you out or watch you keenly, but I think it is because Chrisitaniaty for a long time had been the club for the “ holier than thou” and so it was hard for people to want to get in, but I believe in a principle that, God doesn’t call the qualified, He qualifies the called.

Here’s the thing; Challenges will always exist but God is above all, I would rather focus on being an example of His grace and allowing God to use me to package Christianity in a way that only He would specifically for the various people I interact with and cause a revolution.


Do you feel that putting GOD first in your career has been a blessing in your life.

Joel Osteen says this “ put God first place in your life and He will take you places you never even dreamed of” that statement is a representation of what the bible says your gift will take you before Kings” My understanding is that what when you talk to God, and share with Him your plan He does you one better He takes it and fits it in His plan and its always exceedingly more than we can ask think or imagine, ill tell you this God isn’t through with me yet!

Do You have time to go to church with the busy life (of a news reporter). Do You Feel Your Career At Times Affects Your Christian Life

Yes I am off on Sundays and Mondays and I get to go to church. I am blessed to fellowship at JCC and one of the things Bishop Allan and Kathy Kiuna have taught me is the need to have a personal relationship with God and so I make time each day to pray and to just talk to God when I can. Prayer is a conversation, so I whisper a “ thank you God” a “ Help me through this” every now and then to God.

Sure sometimes I would like to go to bible study more and attend more services but I cant always do that but I make deliberate efforts to try and pray and read the bible I am not perfect but I try.

What Are Your Future Plans:

I plan on doing prime time news, then perhaps a talk show and one day own my own media house.

I also plan to start a family so look out for the wedding.. J




Willis Raburu Advices On “Some 15 Common Interview Questions And How To Answer Them”

Citizen tv reporter Willis Raburu whose new journey to being a news anchor started a few weeks ago, has some interesting 15 questions usually asked when you go to apply for a job.

willis jcc

Our brother has thought this through and has g yoone further to give you answers to them read below.

15 Common Interview Questions and how to answer them.

1. So, tell me a little about yourself.
I’d be very surprised if you haven’t been asked this one at every interview. It’s probably the most asked question because it sets the stage for the interview and it gets you talking. Be careful not to give the interviewer your life story here. You don’t need to explain everything from birth to present day. Relevant facts about education, your career and your current life situation are fine.

2. Why are you looking (or why did you leave your last job)?
This should be a straightforward question to answer, but it can trip you up. Presumably you are looking for a new job (or any job) because you want to advance your career and get a position that allows you to grow as a person and an employee. It’s not a good idea to mention money here, it can make you sound mercenary. And if you are in the unfortunate situation of having been downsized, stay positive and be as brief as possible about it. If you were fired, you’ll need a good explanation. But once again, stay positive.

3. Tell me what you know about this company.
Do your homework before you go to any interview. Whether it’s being the VP of marketing or the mailroom clerk, you should know about the company or business you’re going to work for. Has this company been in the news lately? Who are the people in the company you should know about? Do the background work, it will make you stand out as someone who comes prepared, and is genuinely interested in the company and the job.

4. Why do you want to work at X Company?
This should be directly related to the last question. Any research you’ve done on the company should have led you to the conclusion that you’d want to work there. After all, you’re at the interview, right? Put some thought into this answer before you have your interview, mention your career goals and highlight forward-thinking goals and career plans.

5. What relevant experience do you have?
Hopefully if you’re applying for this position you have bags of related experience, and if that’s the case you should mention it all. But if you’re switching careers or trying something a little different, your experience may initially not look like it’s matching up. That’s when you need a little honest creativity to match the experiences required with the ones you have. People skills are people skills after all, you just need to show how customer service skills can apply to internal management positions, and so on.

6. How are you when you’re working under pressure?
Once again, there are a few ways to answer this but they should all be positive. You may work well under pressure, you may thrive under pressure, and you may actually PREFER working under pressure. If you say you crumble like a pack of cards, this is not going to help you get your foot in the door.

7. What motivates you to do a good job?
The answer to this one is not money, even if it is. You should be motivated by life’s noble pursuits. You want recognition for a job well done. You want to become better at your job. You want to help others or be a leader in your field.

8. What’s your greatest strength?
This is your chance to shine. You’re being asked to explain why you are a great employee, so don’t hold back and stay do stay positive. You could be someone who thrives under pressure, a great motivator, an amazing problem solver or someone with extraordinary attention to detail. If your greatest strength, however, is to drink anyone under the table or beat your opponent in a game of FIFA11, keep it to yourself. The interviewer is looking for work-related strengths.

9. What’s your biggest weakness?
If you’re completely honest, you may be kicking yourself in the butt. If you say you don’t have one, you’re obviously lying. This is a horrible question and one that politicians have become masters at answering. They say things like “I’m perhaps too committed to my work and don’t spend enough time with my family.” Oh, there’s a fireable offense.

I’ve even heard “I think I’m too good at my job, it can often make people jealous.” Please, let’s keep our feet on the ground. If you’re asked this question, give a small, work-related flaw that you’re working hard to improve. Example: “I’ve been told I occasionally focus on details and miss the bigger picture, so I’ve been spending time laying out the complete project every day to see my overall progress.”

10. Let’s talk about salary. What are you looking for?
Run for cover! This is one tricky game to play in an interview. Even if you know the salary range for the job, if you answer first you’re already showing all your cards. You want as much as possible, the employer wants you for as little as you’re willing to take.

You may want to say, “well, that’s something I’ve thought long and hard about and I think someone with my experience should get between X & Y.” Or, you could be sly and say, “right now, I’m more interested in talking more about what the position can offer my career.” That could at least buy you a little time to scope out the situation. But if you do have a specific figure in mind and you are confident that you can get it, I’d say go for it.

11. Are you good at working in a team?
Unless you have the I.Q. of a houseplant, you’ll always answer YES to this one. It’s the only answer. How can anyone function inside an organization if they are a loner? You may want to mention what part you like to play in a team though; it’s a great chance to explain that you’re a natural leader.

12. Would you rather work for money or job satisfaction?
It’s not a very fair question is it? We’d all love to get paid a Trump-like salary doing a job we love but that’s rare indeed. It’s fine to say money is important, but remember that NOTHING is more important to you than the job. Otherwise, you’re just someone looking for a bigger paycheck.

13. Would you rather be liked or feared?
The genuine answer should be “Neither, I’d rather be respected.” You don’t want to be feared because fear is no way to motivate a team. You may got the job done but at what cost? Similarly, if you’re everyone’s best friend you’ll find it difficult to make tough decisions or hit deadlines. But when you’re respected, you don’t have to be a complete bastard or a lame duck to get the job done.

14. So, explain why I should hire you.
As I’m sure you know, “because I’m great” or “I really need a job” are not good answers here. This is a time to give the employer a laundry list of your greatest talents that just so happen to match the job description. It’s also good to avoid taking potshots at other potential candidates here. Focus on yourself and your talents, not other people’s flaws.

15. Finally, do you have any questions to ask me?
I’ll finish the way I started, with one of the most common questions asked in interviews. This directly relates to the research you’ve done on the company and also gives you a chance to show how eager and prepared you are. You’ll probably want to ask about benefits if they haven’t been covered already. A good generic one is “how soon could I start, if I were offered the job of course.” You may also ask what you’d be working on. Specifically, in the role you’re applying for and how that affects the rest of the company. Always have questions ready, greeting this one with a blank stare is a rotten way to finish your interview. Good luck and happy job hunting.
