Media personalities pay tribute to veteran journalist Waweru Mburu

News of veteran Broadcaster Waweru Mburu’s sudden demise on Wednesday, September 28 evening shocked many.

Moments after Michael Njenga broke the sad news on Citizen TV’s 9:00 pm bulletin, journalists, fans and even politicians took to Social Media to pay tribute and condole with the family.

Mburu, who succumbed to gastric cancer, was popular for ‘Yaliyotendeka’ show on Radio Citizen that many, who are in their twenties now, grew up listening to.

His mastery of Kiswahili Language, characteristic intonation that many have mimicked over the years and signature idiomatic ending, served up his hard-hitting analysis for nearly two decades on radio.

Take a look at some of the tribute messages by media personalities, public figures and fans as Kenya mourns one of her most iconic sons.

What A Sad Way To End My Day! You Gave Me An Opportunity And Freedom To Explore My Talent On #RadioCitizenFM, You Have Always Led The Team To The Constant Number One Position. You Were A Great Boss. You Were Strong Even On Your Sickbed. I Will Miss You WAWERU MBURU : May God Receive You And Be With Your Family. #RIPWaweruMburu #Yaliyotendeka
