Raburu also expressed deep appreciation for the unwavering support he received from his former colleagues throughout the years.
“I’m grateful to you who have worked with me in all these 13 years I have been in the media doing several different things. I’m grateful to my colleagues, I’m grateful to the opportunity to come out and do whatever it is that I love,” he said.
Adding: “I have learnt a lot and I have experienced a lot and it has allowed me to grow in my mind in my appreciation of people, in my appreciation of things and even attitudes.”
